It’s Tuesday! And I’m so glad I can participate in this week’s Top 5 Tuesday. I’ve missed it the last few weeks because wedding planning has taken over my life. I’m counting down the days until I’ll be sat eating my wedding cake, feeling all great because I’ll never have to organise a wedding EVER again. Argh… rant over.
So, Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by the lovely Shanah, The Bionic Bookworm. This week it’s all about books that you LOVED, but other’s DIDN’T.
A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara
Okay, this book is long. And I mean LONG. And it’s depressing. But I loved it. I bought it for one of my friends for her birthday a few years back and she still hasn’t even opened it!!!
Angels & Demons – Dan Brown
I LOVED this book. But only a few of my friends and family have read it and they didn’t think it was that great. Granted, some Dan Brown books are a LOT better than others, but for me this is definitely at the top!
The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
This is one of my all time favourite books and I’m honesty the only one out of my friends and family that like it. HOW CAN YOU NOT LIKE IT!?
The Catcher In The Rye – J.D. Salinger
I love this book… but when you try to explain why it’s so awesome to someone it’s SO hard. Because not a lot happens… but at the same time a lot happens. It’s a weird one. If you’ve read it, you’ll know.
Look Who’s Back – Timur Vermes
I’m a HUGE history geek, so naturally I was super excited about this book and I ended up loving everything about it. It’s set in Berlin in 2011. Adolf Hitler wakes up in the middle of Berlin to find that the Germany that he knew has now completely changed. If you’re into German history and have a dark sense of humour, you’ll love it. If not, you’ll probably hate it.
