Top 5 Wednesday| A Full English and I'll be Fine.

And we're back! Haven't done a Top 5 Wednesday in a while- so HELLO!

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly blog group that come together to discuss that weeks topic. The idea was first curated by the wonderful Lainey at GingerReadLainey and is now run by Samantha over on ThoughtsonTomes. 

If you wish to participate, either on your Blog or Booktube channel then, please, join the group on Goodreads for all the relevant topics.

This week we have been given a freebie to pick our own topic. I'm choosing to do a topic that from a few years ago: My top 5 book hangovers. All in good fun, as my I'm currently making my flatmate suffer with her hangover. 

Of course, I'm terrible and the only ranking is based on which ones I choose first.

1. Strange the Dreamer
Laini Taylor

Everyone has raved about this book for the best part of a year. If you haven't read any of my previous blog posts, than you have yet to see me go all gooey and gushy about this one. Is there a T5W topic that I have not applied StD to?

2. Good Omens
Terry Pratchett; Neil Gaiman

I'm basically naming all time top 5 at this point. I've read this one at least four
times now, and every time I'll sit there after and just not know what to pick up next. I've now learnt that the best way to follow up a reread is just to read one or two Discworld books. 

3. The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet
Becky Chambers

This hangover didn't last too long. Just for the rest of December and into the new year 2016-17.

4. Godsgrave 
Jay Kristoff

I was umming and erring about whether to put Nevernight or Godsgrave on this list and went with Godsgrave for this one reason: I finished it, I read that cliffhanger, that cruel ending and just cried in my Nan's living room. It was the first and only time my Nan has ever seen me cry over a book. I then went on to my Nan going through my unread books and picking out my next read, because I couldn't shake of this beautiful monster of a book.

5. City of Lost Souls
Cassandra Clare

Knew ol' Cassie Clare would be on here at some point. I must have read this just after it had first been release, and we all know how it ends... and we all know how long we had to wait for the conclusion to the series. I didn't touch another book for months after finishing this one.
