Top 5 Debut Novels

top 5 tuesday

Note: Created by BionicBookworm

Hi Readers

Is it me or are some of the best books out there debut novels? Books that got an author published for the first time are so special and all of these debut’s I loved and highly recommend you read.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky – This has been Chbosky’s debut and only novel for 20 years now. He’s finally coming out with a new one, I wonder if it will live up to his first for me though because Perks is one of my favourites of all time.

Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J.K. Rowling – The book that started it all.

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng – Still my favourite book of hers. 

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte – Whilst this wasn’t the first book she wrote it was the first to be published. 

Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I love this series and this book made me fall in love with these characters.

What is your favourite debut?

Top 5 Mind Blowing Mystery/Thrillers

top 5 tuesday

Created by Bionic Bookworm

Hi Readers

When it comes to thrillers they’re really hit or miss with me. Either they blow my mind of bore my brains out. These ones really hit the mark and so if you’re looking for a gasp rendering twisty novel, look no further.

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty – I feel like everyone must have heard of this book by now thanks to the TV show. I preferred the book although I’m excited to see the story continued. 

Good Me, Bad Me by Ali Land – It was a while ago since I read this but whenever I think of this book a chill comes over me. I remember the writing being so creepy and unsettling. I also read this in one sitting. I could not put it down. 

Cormoran Strike Series by Robert Galbraith – If you like British crime TV Shows then you’ll probably like these books. It follows a private detective whose ex military and his partner Robin.

The Seven Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton – This mystery has a bit of sci-fi mixed in to make it one of the most unique books I’ve ever read. 

Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng – This is another one that’s definitely due a reread. But it’s great mystery that is also about family and being Chinese American in the 1970’s. 

Let me know if you’ve taken part in this weeks top 5 tuesday!

Hi Readers

This week we’re talking about my own house, Hufflepuff! It’s safe to say I definitely know the mind of a Hufflepuff so picking this weeks 5 books should be pretty easy.

Hard-working – My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante

Loyal – Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien

Compassionate – The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

Top 5 Tuesday – Books That Need to Be a Movie

top 5 tuesday

Note: Hosted by BionicBookworm

Hi Readers

This weeks topic is books we want to be adapted into movies. 2019 is such an exciting year for book adaptations but sadly none of these are happening…yet. I still have my fingers crossed for them.

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid – I have a feeling this is going to be on a lot of peoples lists and for good reason.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman – Because I love a good British comedy that also hits you in the feels. 

Legend by Marie Lu – This could be happening and I really hope it does. Who doesn’t love a movie full of freerunners and rebels?

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi – I’m cheating with this one because I actually think this would make a great TV Show. But it HAS to be adapted somehow.

The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon – This has so much potential but it’s such a huge project to take on. 

What book do you hope gets turned into a movie?
