Happy Saturday, everyone! Today is the first official instalment of my new Goodreads Bookshelf series! Inspired by Bella @ All Things Annabelle, every other week, I’ll be going through the different shelves I have on Goodreads, explaining what they mean, and some of the books on there. Today is part two my favourites shelf!
Again, this is fairly self-explanatory. These are some of my favourite books. They’re not all books I’ve rated five-stars, or books that are ~good~, but books that I reread all the time and enjoy. You can read the first half of this shelf here!
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling: this is definitely, by far, my favourite Harry Potter book. There’s just something about it that I love, and it has so many of my favourite scenes. The Halloween part. The Christmas time. The ending and the time-travelling. Sirius Black and his back story. Hogsmeade. The Marauders Map. I just love it all.
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls: this is definitely my favourite non-fiction book, and (obviously) one of my favourite books of all time. I just love it a lot. I think Walls’ writing is so good, and her reflections on her life are super interesting.
I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak: this is one of those books that I know has issues, but love nonetheless. I can’t help but love it. Every time I reread it, I expect to love it less, but alas, I never do. I could read 5,000 pages of this book and never get bored.
Looking for Alaska by John Green: Looking for Alaska was my first John Green (I’m pretty sure) and also my favourite and also the only one of his books I actually,,, enjoy? I tend to think his books are overrated, but I love this one so much.
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder: again, I think everyone should read this book. It’s a fantasy with a badass female lead and a great love interest. It’s practically perfect and I love it so much.
The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman: this book was also on my to-reread list. But I remember it being one of my all-time favourites and loving it so much, hence why it’s on this list.
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie: this is by far my favourite mystery novel. It’s so interesting and twisty and smart and well-crafted. I think everyone should read this book if they enjoy mysteries, and even if they don’t enjoy mysteries.
So that’s the second half of my favourites shelf! Have you read any of these? What were your thoughts? Feel free to trash my faves, I won’t be offended. What are some of your favourites? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! xx
