Top 5 Wednesday| Books Before I Started Blogging

Top 5 Wednesdays is a book meme that was started by Laini from GingerreadsLaini and is now hosted by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes.

If you ever want to join the fun, join the Goodreads group- here.

This one is a weird one because I slightly feel like I have already made a similar post back for my 18th birthday, last year. I took books from my childhood right the way through my adolescents. Also, a lot of my reading has happened during the two/three years I have been blogging. 

1. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Series: The Mortal Instruments

I read this waaaaaaay before I even knew what blogging was. It was just in the school library, sounded interesting and so I checked it out. It even had the cover before the one to the left came out! A copy I now own. A later learned that these were a pretty popular series- and I was obsessed!

2. The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket
Series: A Series of Unfortunate Events

This was the biggest series I remember reading when I was in my final year of primary school. I was probably ten... Eleven. No. Ten. 

3. Magyk by Angie Sage
Series: Septimus Heap

I read these after The Mortal Instruments, looking for a new series to get obsessed about. This is a middle grade series that I never seemed to be able to get passed the third book in the series. This is one I would love to revisit and finish.

4. Matilda by Roald Dahl

Gosh, Roald Dahl is the reason I still read to this day. And Quentin Blake was the reason I tried all my best to be an illustrator. Maybe. one day I'll write a children's book, and illustrate it like my idols.

5. Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
Series: Harry Potter

What list wouldn't be complete without Harry Potter. A book series that really grew without bloggers, booktubers and bookstagrammers. And one that we all* love.

*Not entirely.


  1. I was never a huge fan of The Mortal Instruments - in fact I never finished the last book! I am reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone at the moment - never too late for Harry Potter, right? Nice list!

    1. No, it's never too late for Harry Potter! And thank you.
