Today I would like to welcome to the blog Laura from Five Little Doves. She is guesting in my series where different people share their five favourite books in a chosen genre. Laura has shared with us her favourite five books of all time. There is a book on there I also love – The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton – I loved reading Enid Blyton’s books as a child and books I hope to share with my children when they’re older.
My Favourite Five Books by Laura – Five Little Loves
1. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
This is my all time favourite book, and the first book that really made me sob. I must have read it over fifty times and I still cry at the end although I recently saw the film and was really disappointed. Very few films ever live up to the book!
2. P.S I love you by Cecilia Aherne
I love this book, and pretty much anything by Cecilia Aherne. I love the story of Holly and Gerry, and although it makes me cry (there’s a running theme here!) it’s actually a really heart warming book that I could read again and again, and I do!
3. The Magic Faraway Tree, by Enid Blyton
There is nothing about this book that I don’t love, even now in my thirties I can read it and get swept away in a world of imagination. I love reading this to the children at night, introducing them to the different lands, the Saucepan man, Silky and Moon face. It never grows old, even as I do.
4. Flowers In The Attic by Virginia Andrews
I first read this when I was in my early teens, bored one day and found it on my Mum’s book shelf, and by the end of the week I had read every single book in the series. I was completely gripped, shocked, and saddened by it, but it made a real impression on me and I still read it now from time to time.
5. One Day by David Nicholls
This is the most beautiful story of Dexter and Emma, best friends who miss out on the chance of love time and time again. It made me laugh, cringe, and cry myself stupid, but I was completely gripped by the will they, won’t they saga.
