This weeks top 5 Wednesday is about my favourite publishers. This is quite a strange thing for a top 5 Wednesday i think, as we usually think about the books that we’ve read and what did or didn’t like about them. This week i’ll be thinking about the publishing houses and what great books i think they produce. If you browse through your shelves often, you’ll notice that many of your favourite books are all from the same publishers. They generally have a set ‘type’ of novel they are looking for, and someone who often reads the same genre will be used to buying from the same publisher knowingly. As a bit of a creative writing nerd (i studied it at university), publishing houses intrigue me. Here are my favourite publishing houses.

The problem of a reader is constantly falling in and out of love with characters. When you read, you automatically get wrapped up in these characters lives, and therefore end up loving the people you are reading about. That is unless you take an instant disliking to a character, which also happens often. Today’s post is about all the characters that you once loved very much, and now you’ve had second thoughts. When you’ve had some time to think about that character, you can often fall out of love with them. I’ve done that plenty of times, so here are my top 5.

I think we have all had that moment where we receive a book and the synopsis doesn’t sound great. Then one day, you decide to read it and it is amazing!

I am someone who often skim reads the back of books and this can lead to many shocks and surprises whilst reading! Here’s my top 5 for this week.

It’s Top 5 Wednesday day again! I don’t know where the weeks go because i’m always shocked when it’s time to put up my Wednesday post again! Well this weeks topic is top t non-canon ships. For those of you that don’t spend all your time on the internet, this means the couples that you ‘ship’ that are not actually together in the book. So it could be the main character and their best friend, instead of the main character and their boyfriend/girlfriend. You could even let your heart run wild and ship people from two different worlds or series. I usually stick to what’s written with the pairings that i like in novels, so i’ve had to rack my brains for this one!

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is the 5 books that have taken me the longest to finish. Now i’m a slow reader to start with, however we all have books that are so dull or we’re so bored by them that they take us so long to read! I tend to read half of a book, get bored and then continue months later after dipping in every so often. I hate being a slow reader, but when reading a book is an uphill battle, it gets a little harder!

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is my top 5 gateway books. A ‘gateway book’ is a book that introduces you to a genre. These are books that are easy to read and compass a certain genre easily so that the person entering that genre can get a good idea of what it is about. I really love reading gateway books because they always introduce you to new things, similarly i like hearing what others favourite gateway books are, it generally gives you a good idea of what the person likes and they’re interested in. Instead of doing my gateway books in to a specific genre, i’m going to be telling you all my top 5 books that are gateways in to graphic novels!
