Reading for me isn’t something which comes naturally. I struggle with dyslexia on a daily basis, so having to deal with university and the amount of reading which goes into it just sucks the fun out of other books. However, over the years I have done my fair share of book shopping and fell under the trap of wanting to read it. While some have managed to read them within a day or two, maybe even a week, it’s took me about a month and a half read it and understand what the book is trying to tell you.
- The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – How can this book not be in my top four?! It’s probably the first book which I managed to sit and read all the way through over the course of two weeks while attending college. I loved every minute of it even though I did need to go and re-read bits of the book. I went to see the film on my birthday and again loved that. Me and my cousin’s girlfriend, Rachael, were both in tears at the sad parts.
- Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo – When I have tried to explain this one to my friends, they just didn’t know what I was going on about. I found the book thrilling and enjoyable and was a really moving read. It took me away from reality and as though I was in a completely different world while I was reading it. I really would recommend this one!
- How To Speak Dragonese by Creddida Cowell – Again, another childhood favourite! I remember going through an “I love dragons” stage at one point in my life. This was one of the books which I got along with a how to draw a dragon which included lots of step by step guides on painting and illustrating a dragon using computer software.
- Girl Online by Zoe Sugg – Okay, so this one is cheating slightly as I haven’t quite finished it but I am getting there slowly. Since the release date on November 25, I have been deep into this book, working my way though the pages slowly. I have recently reached Chapter Five and can really relate to some of things which is happening in the book which makes it all the more interesting.
