Hi everyone, I’m Mia from Mia in Narnia, and I’m really excited to be on Emily’s blog today for the SBPT!
Today I’m going to be talking about favourite books/ book series. This was almost impossible for me to write there are so many books that I love, and my list of favourite books changes all the time but I finally managed to pick ten of my favourite books.
Obviously, these books are massively recommended by me and I definitely think you should read them if you haven’t already!
In no particular order…
THE BOOK THIEF Â– MARKUS ZUSAK
This book is so, so beautiful. The writing is incredible, the characters are unforgettable and theÂ ending will break your heart. If you want a heart warming, inspirational and emotional story setÂ against the backdrop of Nazi Germany then this is definitely the book for you.
THE INFERNAL DEVICES TRILOGY Â– CASSANDRA CLARE
I know I said these books were in no particular order, but The Infernal Devices is my favouriteÂ book series of all time. It has just the right amount of romance and action for me, and theÂ characters in it are some the best I’ve ever read about (Jem Carstairs is the love of my life). Also, IÂ love anything set in London or the Victorian Era, and TID has both!
THE FAULT IN OUR STARS Â– JOHN GREEN
You might be seeing a trend here: I love books that break my heart. I know TFIOS is incrediblyÂ popular and it’s kind of a clichÃ© choice for this list, but I really do love the characters and the story. Okay?
THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA Â– C.S LEWIS
You might have guessed this one from my blog name, but I’ve been obsessed with Narnia everÂ since I was little. It’s just so magical!
TWO BOYS KISSING Â– DAVID LEVITHAN
Two boys kissing is unique and incredibly moving, and it deals with some very important andÂ controversial topics in a beautifully powerful way. It’s a very fast read (I got through it in an hourÂ or two) but it definitely packs a huge punch. This is the kind of book I think everybody should readÂ as a teenager (or any other time!)
ELEANOR AND PARK Â– RAINBOW ROWELL
Oh look, it’s another book that made me sob! Eleanor and Park is one of the most adorableÂ romances I’ve ever read, with brilliant characters and a writing style I really enjoy. There are someÂ darker themes, and the ending is horrible (just warning you!) but it still makes me laugh and cryÂ and swoon every time I read it.
THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY Â– SUZANNE COLLINS
If it wasn’t for the Hunger Games, I might have never gotten into young adult literature. IÂ definitely wouldn’t have this blog. In fact, if it wasn’t for the Hunger Games my whole life wouldÂ be very different. It was the first young adult novel I ever read (back when it first came out!) andÂ the characters and story have stuck with me for years.
THE BLOOD OF EDEN TRILOGY Â– JULIE KAGAWA
There had to be a Julie Kagawa book on here somewhere (she’s one of my all time favouriteÂ authors!), and my favourite series by her is definitely The Blood of Eden. You might think you’reÂ sick of vampires but trust me, you still want to read this series. The vampires are wonderfully dark,Â the story is action packed and gruesome with just the right amount of romance, and I love theÂ characters (however twisted they may be).
THE RAILWAY CHILDREN Â– E. NESBITT
The railway children is my favourite book from my childhood, and even though I haven’t read it inÂ years and I can’t quite remember the story I do remember how it captured my imagination when IÂ was a kid and made me fall in love with the characters. I really need to re read this one!
FANGIRL Â– RAINBOW ROWELL
Yep, I have two Rainbow Rowell books on my top ten list. I just love her writing! Fangirl is reallyÂ special to me personally because it was the first book where I really related to the main character.Â Me and Cath are pretty much the same person, and I can’t explain how it made me feel to seeÂ someone who thought in exactly the same way I did presented on the page. Also, Fangirl has fabÂ supporting characters and an adorable romance, and I love the college campus setting.
Thank you so much for reading, and for Emily for featuring me on her blog!
