Hi Guys! So this weeks Top 5 Wednesday topic is books that were suggested to you that you ended up loving! You can find the goodreads group for T5W here if you want to join in! And I hope you enjoy it!
5. Maximum Ride by James Patterson
This book series was recommended to me by my 7th grade teacher and I was hesitant to read it but I ended up absolutely loving it! I want’t a fan of science fiction until I read this book. So it opened up an entirely new genre for me! It’s such a great series that I’d recommend to anyone!
4. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey
I had heard about this book a lot from booktube and book blogs so I decided to give it a try and I ended up loving it! Even though this wasn’t necessarily recommended to me by a specific person, it still made it onto this this because it is one of my most loved book community recommendations.
3. The Lux Series by Jennifer L. Armentrout
This series was also recommended several times by a lot of the blogs and youtube channels I follow so I finally decided to see what all the hype was about and I’m so glad I did!! This is now one of my favorite series of all time and it will forever remain that way! I’m so thankful to have read this series!
2. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
This series was recommended to me by a girl in my 6th grade class that wasn’t much of a reader and I thought that if she liked it than I had to give it a try and I remember going to the library to pick it up and I didn’t like it at first but then, once I got into it I became absolutely obsessed. I drew fan art, I made a movie trailer and I was one of those kids that wore the pin as a necklace everyday and braided my hair. Yup… But, this book started me on my fandom journey and I honestly don’t know if I would be as much of a reader as I am if that girl hadn’t recommended it to me back in 6th grade.
1. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
NUMBER ONE ON MY LIST IS THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS BY CASSANDRA CLARE!! This series was actually recommended to me from school summer reading. I went through the list and this book sounded interesting to me so I picked it. Later I went back on my decision and I wanted to pick a shorter book because I wanted to be able to read for fun and not spend a lot of my time reading for school. But, the same day I decided not to read it, my moms boyfriend bought it for me and then I decided I should just go ahead and read it. And when I did, it took me three days of bringing the book with me everywhere and eating at the dinner table because I couldn’t put it down.
This by far is my most successful recommendation from someone else and ironically it came from school! If I had never read this book, -like the Hunger Games- I would never even have this book blog. This book started me back on reading and I’ve been obsessed with books ever since.
I hope you all enjoyed this Top 5 Wednesday! Let me know your top 5 books that you loved that were recommended to you below!
