Top 5 Wednesday: Books to read by the fire

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is top five books to read by the fire. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…




Number 5: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis  


The Chronicles of Narnia (Chronicles of Narnia, #1-7)This one is probably a no brainer. When Lucy first walks in the wardrobe there is a blanket of white snow on the floor and snow is the first thing I think of winter. This would just be a great book to sit around the fire and read.   










Number 4: My True Love Gave to Me by Stephanie Perkins and other authors 

My True Love Gave to Me: Twelve Winter RomancesThis is a collection of Christmas stories and is definitely perfect for around the fire. The stories in this book also have a Christmas or winter theme so are perfect to read around the fire. 









Number 3: Let It Snow by John Green, Lauren Myracle and Maureen Johnson  

Let It SnowThis is the book that I am currently reading and I definitely know that if I do not read it this year then I will have to wait for next year. It is definitely a Christmas read centred around this time and the Maureen Johnson part is set in a snow storm and this just says a winter read.  








Number 2: Dash and Lilly's Book of Dares by David Levithan and Rachel Cohn 

Dash & Lily's Book of Dares (Dash & Lily, #1)This is another Christmas book that is perfect for Christmas. Especially if you like a book set in New York during Christmas. It is definitely another book perfect for reading by the fire!









Number 1: Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling 

I do not know why everyone thinks that the Harry Potter series links to Christmas but I am also one of those people. Maybe it is because everyone wants to have dinner in the Great Hall... Well that is my reason!

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
