Books For My Younger Self | Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, GoodReads group here with all the topics + discussion!
This weeks topic is; Books for my younger self

This is definitely an interesting topic for me, as I didn’t read AT ALL until about the age of 13! I definitely think I was given the wrong books as a child, maybe I would’ve been a reader as a kid, had they given me books that held my attention. I was never given fantasy or sci-fi as an option, my school were terrible for books – they were all crap!

1) The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

2) Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan keeps coming up in my T5W posts but I can’t help it! His books are so good, I cannot rave about them enough. Younger me definitely would’ve loved these books! I love them now as an adult and I will forever love Rick Riordan’s amazing writing.


3) The Raven Boys

Teenage me would’ve probably loved Blue and the Raven Boys, this would be the definition of friendship goals for me. The magic realism and psychic stuff would’ve also interested me.


4) Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

As I stated, I wasn’t a reader when I was younger but I feel with the formatting and layout of Illuminae this would be such a good starting place to get into Sci-fi! It’s so easy and fun to read, it’s not like reading a normal book.


5) Nevermoor

I wasn’t blown away by this when I read it a few months ago but I definitely think younger me would’ve enjoyed it. It is a middle grade, which I’m usually a fan of but I feel it was a bit young for me. Which is why I think it’d be perfect for the younger me!
