This week’s #SixForSunday prompt is all about love; the books that made birds suddenly appear whilst reading. I must say I am finding the prompts a little tricky to answer, however I think I have the solution… Read more books.
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K Rowling | Beautiful Broken Things by Sara Barnard | A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
When it came to books that made me fall in love, I had to talk about the book that I loved as a child, and read over and over again. Of course, I am talking about Harry Potter! Even though I have the 20th anniversary editions, I still have my childhood copy with its cracked and worn out spine from endless rereading.
Believe it or not, Beautiful Broken Things was one of the first books I read when I first attempted book blogging. Even though my review is shockingly bad, it introduced Sara Barnard into my life. Speaking of reviews, I need to re-read and rewrite my review sharpish!
Why yes, this is another Barnard book in this post, but I need to scream about it from the rooftops – I love A Quiet Kind of Thunder SO MUCH. I love Rhys and Steffi, and I loved them even more together. *clutches book to chest* This book is perfection and you need to read it immediately.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky | One by Sarah Crossan | Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne
Another book I fell in love with is The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I don’t know how anyone cannot fall in love with Charlie whilst reading. He is the sweetest soul. I love the book AND the film adaptation, and seeing as I recently rewatched the film, it’s only right I reread the book as well.
On a slightly different note, I need to talk about the book that made me fall in love with free verse poetry – One by Sarah Crossan. I fell in love with Grace’s and Tippi’s story and yes, I did cry at the ending on the train. I have no regrets.
Finally, the last book that made me fall in love was Am I Normal Yet? Even though this was the second Holly Bourne book I read, it quickly cemented my love for her, and I have read (and loved) everything she has written since. What made me love this book was the inclusion of feminist themes throughout. Where was this book when I was a teen?
