This week’s topic is: Books From Before I Joined the online bookish community
Description: these are some of your favourite books from before you joined the online book community, whether that’d be booktube, Goodreads, blogs, bookstagram, twitter, tumblr…etc
Well since I’m very new to the blogging world, I’m going to go with before I joined Goodreads. If I go with my blog date, there’d be too many books to choose from so Goodreads it is. Hope you all enjoy this. 🤗💕💖
1- Twilight by Stephanie Meyer
Well, just like everybody else, I also have jumped on Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight bandwagon. I know I will probably get chastised big time for saying this but unlike the most I actually quite enjoyed these books. It opened my mind up to YA paranormal/fantasy world that I spend most my days in now. 😊
2- Sushi for Beginners by Marian Keyes
This is actually one of my favourite stories I’ve read before I got into the bookish world. This is a cute romantic comedy between a boss and his assistant. I just couldn’t get enough of this book, Marian’s writing is also fantastic that it grips you from the very first page and you think you are one the characters- at least that’s exactly how I felt while reading this book. Ps: This cover does NOT do the book any justice… just saying…
3- The Host by Stephanie Meyer
Again, many people didn’t like this book at all, but I loved it. I thought the concept was very interesting and just couldn’t get enough of it. However, I’ll join most of the people in saying I didn’t like the movie at all, it could have been done so much better but it just lacked on so many different levels.
4- The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
I really enjoyed this book and all the places mentioned in the book. Loved the mystery that was in the book. Couple years after reading this book, I have traveled to Paris to visit my sister, and I went to every single place that was mentioned in the book as being in Paris. It was amazing to see all the artefacts and structures and compare them to the descriptions on the book.
5- The Firm by John Grisham
This book and this author has a special space in my heart. My mother and I used to read John Grisham books all the time together. This book is actually the first John Grisham book that my mother had read and recommended for me to read, I think I was in grade 9 then, and loved it so much.
Thanks so much for reading y’all. I hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as I enjoyed writing it.
