Today (March 7th) is World Book Day, a day dedicated to encouraging reading among young people, but also a day celebrating authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
To celebrate I am sharing my favourite books (as an adult) with you, having already covered my favourite childhood books (which you can read here).
Favourite books (as an adult)
📚 Favorite stand-alone?
The first book that came to mind was The Host by Stephanie Meyer. But there are so many that I could choose including ‘Cell’ by Stephen King and ‘The Bone Collector’ by Jeffery Deaver.
📚 Favorite series?
Either The Hunger Games or The Lord of the Rings.
📚 Favorite author?
Stephen King or Kathy Reichs
📚 Favorite book of the year, so far?
Shamefully I haven’t finished a book yet this year(!), but I’m currently ‘Doctor Sleep’ by Stephen King.
📚 A favorite book you didn’t see coming ?
Honestly, The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I wasn’t sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised by the storyline and felt the writing style was overly better than the Twilight series.
📚 A book you think everyone should read?
The Lord of the Rings series along with The Hobbit.
📚 Favorite book as a child?
I covered this in an earlier post so I won’t go into too much detail. My favourites are Matilda, The BFG, The Hobbit, Winnie the Pooh and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
📚 Favorite book in a genre you don’t typically enjoy?
To be honest the only book series I’ve read in a genre I don’t typically enjoy was 50 Shades of Grey. But I wouldn’t say that was a ‘favourite’. The books I tend to read are from the fantasy, horror or crime genres.
📚 Favorite book that isn’t that well known?
Awakening (Tesla Adventures) by Tasha Brown. My mum lent me this book to read and I couldn’t put it down! It’s a fictional story about Nikola Tesla. I’ll be posting a review on it in the future. 😊
