Top 5 Wednesday: Gateway Books

It’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five gateway books. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the Goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey but is currently being curated, by Samantha. I haven't done this for a while so this will be interesting but anyway, let’s get started…

Number 5: The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak

The Book ThiefThis book is a great way to get into to almost adult fiction. It has been a hugely popular book for a while now on booktube but in general after a film was made a couple of years ago. It is also one of my favourite books so is worth a read!









Number 4: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

The Bone Season (The Bone Season, #1)This book is often considered to be both YA and adult so therefore it is a good gateway book especially if you really fantasy books.










Number 3: The Opposite Loneliness by Marina Keegan

The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays and StoriesBeing a combination of non-fiction and fiction stories, The Opposite of Loneliness is a wonderful book that deserves to be read by everyone and is just a great book. It has a youthful tone which definitely bridges the gap between adult and YA.








Number 2: Nimona by Noelle Stephenson

NimonaI love this graphic novel and it often has a YA writing style that is quite different to others of this genre so is great for those who want to try a new genre.









Number 1: The Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger

The Catcher in the RyeWhen I first started to read this book, I honest thought that it has a similar tone to those of John Green so is the perfect book for anyone who wants to read more classics.

See you soon,

Favourite Graphic Novels & Manga of 2021

As I have read a lot of books this year, I always want to give graphic novels and manga their own celebration as they often get overlooked and do make up a lot of my reading. I also find that even though I read a lot of them, it takes a lot to convince me and make it a new favourite. So here are my best... Heartstopper Volume 4 by Alice Oseman  Like everyone on the internet, I too am a massive Heartstopper fan and Volume 4 is no different. I love the relationship of Nick and Charlie and the side characters also make the series. This one also explores the way that mental health can impact romance and it still does justice to the story and does not fall into cliches. I am eagerly anticipating the final volume but I don't want it to be over.  The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott by Zoe Thorogood One of the last graphic novels I read this year and the one that has the second amount of hype, The Impending Blindness of Billie Scott also leaves a lasting impression. I love a good Briti
