I Like A Lot of Books....

...And so I want to share my "Top 5" books that I enjoy... This could become a nerd-out, but I will do my best to contain it. And also, I am not including the Harry Potter books, Lord of the Rings, or The Hunger Games Trilogy because, a) that's 13 books, and b) they are in their own league!

In no particular order, I give thee...

1. Now is Good (Before I Die) by Jenny Downham. 

I have a blog-post about this. I wont go into the plot, but I will say this: I sobbed like a baby during this book. It broke my heart!!

Have tissues on hand for this one!

2. Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt.

I have read this half a dozen times since I was 12 or 13.

Its the memoir of Franks own life and childhood. You will laugh, cry and it will have you reminiscing on your own childhood after you close the book...

3. The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

Forgive this one, I'm still in TFioS mode from Wednesday night. But the fact remains that this book is amazing! Another book to go along with a giant box of Kleenex.


4. One Day by David Nichols. 

This chronicles Em and Dex, the same day, every year for 20 years. I was skeptical when I read it but it was amazing! It has a great twist at the end that you are absolutely not expecting.

A great book, and very engrossing! :D

5. Assassins Creed: Brotherhood by Oliver Bowden.

Technically it shouldnt be on the list because I havent finished it, but I am enjoying it so much I think I can tell you that this book, is indeed the novel of a video-game. I am unashamed to say this. It follows Ezio Auditore DiFirenze as he attempts to take down Borgia forces who are destroying Rome.

Buy it. Read it.
Love it.
