#SixForSunday – Books That Made Me Fall in Love

Posted in blog by

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 poetryOne 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 lovedeverything 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? 

What was the last book you fell in love with?
