Hey guys! I recently joined a group in Goodreads called “Top 5 Wednesday.” It is a weekly book meme created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey to share a great love for lists every Wednesday. For this week, the topic is Best Suggested Books You Loved (books recommended to you).
Let’s get started!
This was suggested by my dad back when I was a “blossoming bookworm”. I was skeptical at first if this would turn out to be a good read because of how childish the cover is, but boy, little did I know that this would be my all-time-most-frequently-read! I recently watched The Little Prince (2015), and words are not enough to describe how I felt about it. I just cried over the course of the film. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.
This was suggested by my friend, JM. I read this book then after a few hours, re-read it again. This book was also the reason why I decided to create a blog in the first place (“How did I start my blog?“). Because of my overflowing thoughts on the book, I just realized that I need somewhere to vent out my emotions. I compiled a list of wonderful quotes from the book here, maybe you could check it out!
This was suggested by my best friend, Melanie. I loved reading thought-provoking mystery books, so she made me borrow this. I really loved it and I remember that I spent hours surfing the net on explanations about this (and I now always interestingly stare in wonder at our “The Last Supper” painting in our kitchen. I am now on a quest to read every similar work by Dan Brown (whenever my budget permits).
This was suggested by my friend, Trisha (or Trillows, as I like to call her). We were seatmates back in high school days and she would always tell how wonderful the book is. I was hooked by her descriptions and the book was gorgeous, too (the strange cover and old photographs were definitely a plus). This book gave me the chills, kept me up all night, left me pondering for days, and wanting for more.
Actually, the Harry Potter series was what was suggested to me by my dad (again). The third book was just my favorite of all. Harry Potter really made an impact on my life as a reader, and I just know that I would enjoy reading as a general hobby after this. I don’t have a physical copy of the series yet, but one of these days I am definitely sure I would have.
See you soon on my next post!
