Top 5 Wednesday: Books to read by the fire

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books to read by the fire. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…

Number 5: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis  

The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #1-7)This one is probably a no brainer. When Lucy first walks in the wardrobe there is a blanket of white snow on the floor and snow is the first thing I think of winter. This would just be a great book to sit around the fire and read.   

Number 4: My True Love Gave to Me by Stephanie Perkins and other authors 

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Winter RomancesThis is a collection of Christmas stories and is definitely perfect for around the fire. The stories in this book also have a Christmas or winter theme so are perfect to read around the fire. 

Number 3: Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson  

Let It SnowThis is the book that I am currently reading and I definitely know that if I do not read it this year then I will have to wait for next year. It is definitely a Christmas read centred around this time and the Maureen Johnson part is set in a snow storm and this just says a winter read.  

Number 2: Dash and Lilly's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn 

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (Dash & Lily, #1)This is another Christmas book that is perfect for Christmas. Especially if you like a book set in New York during Christmas. It is definitely another book perfect for reading by the fire!

Number 1: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling 

I do not know why everyone thinks that the Harry Potter series links to Christmas but I am also one of those people. Maybe it is because everyone wants to have dinner in the Great Hall... Well that is my reason!

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
