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 – MARKUS ZUSAK

This book is so, so beautiful. The writing is incredible, the characters are unforgettable and the ending will break your heart. If you want a heart warming, inspirational and emotional story set against the backdrop of Nazi Germany then this is definitely the book for you.

THE INFERNAL DEVICES TRILOGY – CASSANDRA CLARE

I know I said these books were in no particular order, but The Infernal Devices is my favourite book series of all time. It has just the right amount of romance and action for me, and the characters in it are some the best I’ve ever read about (Jem Carstairs is the love of my life). Also, I love anything set in London or the Victorian Era, and TID has both!

THE FAULT IN OUR STARS – JOHN GREEN

You might be seeing a trend here: I love books that break my heart. I know TFIOS is incredibly popular and it’s kind of a cliché choice for this list, but I really do love the characters and the story. Okay?

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA – C.S LEWIS

You might have guessed this one from my blog name, but I’ve been obsessed with Narnia ever since I was little. It’s just so magical!

TWO BOYS KISSING – DAVID LEVITHAN

Two boys kissing is unique and incredibly moving, and it deals with some very important and controversial topics in a beautifully powerful way. It’s a very fast read (I got through it in an hour or two) but it definitely packs a huge punch. This is the kind of book I think everybody should read as a teenager (or any other time!)

ELEANOR AND PARK – RAINBOW ROWELL

Oh look, it’s another book that made me sob! Eleanor and Park is one of the most adorable romances I’ve ever read, with brilliant characters and a writing style I really enjoy. There are some darker themes, and the ending is horrible (just warning you!) but it still makes me laugh and cry and swoon every time I read it.

THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY – SUZANNE COLLINS

If it wasn’t for the Hunger Games, I might have never gotten into young adult literature. I definitely wouldn’t have this blog. In fact, if it wasn’t for the Hunger Games my whole life would be very different. It was the first young adult novel I ever read (back when it first came out!) and the characters and story have stuck with me for years.

THE BLOOD OF EDEN TRILOGY – JULIE KAGAWA

There had to be a Julie Kagawa book on here somewhere (she’s one of my all time favourite authors!), and my favourite series by her is definitely The Blood of Eden. You might think you’re sick of vampires but trust me, you still want to read this series. The vampires are wonderfully dark, the story is action packed and gruesome with just the right amount of romance, and I love the characters (however twisted they may be).

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN – E. NESBITT

The railway children is my favourite book from my childhood, and even though I haven’t read it in years and I can’t quite remember the story I do remember how it captured my imagination when I was a kid and made me fall in love with the characters. I really need to re read this one!

FANGIRL – RAINBOW ROWELL

Yep, I have two Rainbow Rowell books on my top ten list. I just love her writing! Fangirl is really special to me personally because it was the first book where I really related to the main character. Me and Cath are pretty much the same person, and I can’t explain how it made me feel to see someone who thought in exactly the same way I did presented on the page. Also, Fangirl has fab 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!
