So, like most hard-working adulting people, Friday is my absolutely FAVORITE day of the week.
I look like this at 3:30 on most Fridays when school gets out.
So in honor of my favorite day of the week I bring you a mini series of weekly blog posts entitled FIVE ON FRIDAY.
What is FIVE ON FRIDAY you may ask?? Well… Five on Friday will be a list of my favorite books given to you in, you guessed it, groups of five (in no particular order) !
And now… I present to you PART ONE
- Game of Thrones Series
Okay, disclaimer… I have not finished the series yet… I KNOW I KNOW. However, this series has EVERYTHING okay. Romance? Check. Action? Check and check! Intrigue? Check. Giants, ice zombies, dragons, and incest? Check. Definitely an interesting read even with the length of the series. I haven’t felt the need to rush through this because of George RR Martin’s infamous stalling of the next novel. Clearly if he is in no rush, I don’t need to be anxiously waiting the release of the next book with the rest of the fandom.
2. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
Any book where I stay up past midnight to finish in one sitting is going to make the list of favorites automatically. I read this book in one sitting and this isn’t a children’s 150 page novel. This is actually a pretty large book. HELLO COLLEGE ROMANCES. Okay, has anyone else noticed there is an abundance of high school romance novels (EX John Green Novels), adult romance novels(EX Nicholas Sparks novels) , and sexy adult romance novels( EX Maya Banks novels)? What I have not found is an abundance of college romance novels. I did enjoy this book right after I graduated college and had just started a new relationship which may be why I enjoyed this book and the characters in it.
3. Anything by Sarah Dessen
I started reading Sarah Dessen books when I was a junior in high school and I never stopped. I am obsessed with this author. Her books are always sweet, full of drama, have a good message in them, and deal with real life issues in the teen universe. 10/10 would recommend to any YA lover or teenager.
4. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas AKA ACOTAR
This is the last novel I finished so I have photographed it a lot lately. I fell into this Fandom head over heels. Feyre is the heroine of this novel and is an easy character to love immediately. The writing in this book is absolutely beautifully brilliant. I had to reread and reread sections over and over because Sarah. J Maas describes things with such intricate detail. Fantastic Read. So excited to delve deeper into this fandom.
5. The Once and Future King by TH White
Classic. This is the story of King Arthur which was admittedly a required reading in high school for me but one I thoroughly enjoyed. There is no romance like Guinevere and Lancelot. Definitely a must read for everybody.
Okay that wraps it up for today. Have a great weekend!
