Top Five Books

5. Scatterheart - Lili Wilkinson
Set during the early settlement time in Australia, Scatterheart is a romance with fairy tale elements. It's nothing like a normal romance though, but more of an adventure that evolves into the love story at the end. A dear novel ever since my teen years.

4. Will Grayson, Will Grayson - John Green & David Levithan 
Written by two of the best Young Adult authors, Will Grayson Will Grayson is by far my favourite novel from John Green (and David Levithan, although I haven't read all his works). It's a heartwarming coming of age story that will make you laugh out loud with its relatable storyline.

3. The Other Boleyn Girl - Philippa Gregory
Anne Boleyn is revived in this delightfully, scandalous historical fiction. Philippa Gregory has a way of bringing back to life certain periods of times and I love this one to bits. It's actually told through Mary Boleyn, Anne's sister, and you get a recount that's never really heard of.

2. The Book Thief - Markus Zusak
A moving story set during WWII in Germany, The Book Thief is by far one of the best historical novels I've read. It's different in that the novel focuses more on the people than the effects of war, although you still get that subtly. I think it's just a lovely story of how people can grow courage and strength even amongst dire times.

1. The Harry Potter Series - J. K Rowling
A childhood favourite for many, the Harry Potter series is famous for a reason. It's got the right amount of magic to grab at readers before unloading with lessons on friendship, loyalty, respect, and the good and bad. I can re-read this series countless of times and never get bored, ever.
