Today I will be posting my first ever Top 5 Wednesday post. This week’s theme is ‘Books You’d Save in a Fire’. This is quite difficult for me since most of my books are in e-book format, so for the sake of this post I will pretend that I have a physical copy of all the books. And a last thing before I go on and talk to you about the books, I chose these books because if there was a fire and I lost all but five of my books, these are the books that I could read again and again until I could replace my old ones.
So on number 5 I would choose Eva Ibbotson’s A Countess Below Stairs. I loved this book from the moment I started reading it. It is very well written, it’s a historical fiction and it has hot Russian aristocrats in it. What else could I possibly want right?
On number 4 I would put Chloe Neill’s Twice Bitten. I love her Chicagoland Vampires Series, but this is a favorite among them. It has more Ethan and more Gabriel and generally I enjoy this part of the story more than the rest.
Number three, is The DUFF: Designated Ugly Fat Friend by Kody Keplinger. It’s one of my favorite books and Bianca reminds me of myself sometimes.
Number two: Midnight’s Bride by Sophia Johnson. Because it has made me laugh until my belly hurt. And because what would I do without Heeland coo monsters’ milk?
Finally, number one on my list would be Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, because it is on the top of my favorite books list. I love reading it. It’s a great book.
So these are the top 5 books I would save in a fire. If you’d like to learn more about Top 5 Wednesday, you can visit the group’s goodreads page here.
I know that these books are ones that I could very easily buy again. Even so, I wouldn’t prefer to save the more expensive books in my collection, because they are not books that I have loved as much as these ones. So if I had chosen the expensive ones over these books, it would make me that much more anxious to restore my library to its former glory.
