Since I began following other bloggers I’ve noticed that there are fun little “topic days” that they tend to participate in like Top Ten Tuesday or something similar, which I think is pretty cool because it gives bloggers something sure that they can post every week. Let’s face it, besides reviews, it can be hard to keep up with other post ideas. So, I’ve been thinking of my own and decided to do my own version of the Top Ten posts, only I’ll make it five because it’s sometimes hard to come up with ten things for a topic (at least it is for me).
So I’d like to present: Five on Friday!
I’ll be scouring for topic ideas and I will soon be making a list to go by each week, that way I’ll have something solid for Fridays. I’m still working on what days I’d like to keep as my “review post” days, but for now I’m playing that by ear. The first topic I’ll be doing is Books I Could Reread Forever.
August 23: Books I Could Reread Forever
1. Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling
I mean… this is a given. I started reading Harry Potter when I was real young and can still remember the anticipation of waiting for the next book, then reading it in one day as soon as I got my hands on it. I’ve experienced so much growing up with this series and it will always be a favorite to read again and again!
2. Flipped – Wendelin Van Draanen
This a cute middle-ish grade novel that touches on first loves and changes in life through the perspectives of two eighth-graders. Like the name, one of them starts out with a crush on the other that is just annoying, but as the years go on they swap. It’s a fun journey as these kids learn about their emotions and the obstacles of life. It’s such a cute book and a very light read that can be enjoyed more than once.
3. Time Bomb – Joelle Charbonneau
Such a gripping book that keeps me on edge, even though I’ve already read this one twice since its release last year. I just love the characters and the story itself because underneath the terrible situation they’re in, there’s a huge moral to never judge people based on their backgrounds.
4. Gallagher Girls books – Ally Carter
Uh, a school that trains girl spies? You bet I’ll be rereading this series every few years! The characters are lovable and relatable (other than the spy thing) and honestly, they’re just fun to read.
5. Lola and the Boy Next Door – Stephanie Perkins
My favorite of this group of books. Lola is just a fun, witty character and it was also the first I’d read of the books. Good thing they can be read as stand-alones. Lola and Cricket are probably one of my top fictional couples and I will never tire of their story.
