A few months ago i started a little series entitled ‘Bookish Happiness’. This is where i talked about all the things in the past few weeks/month that made me particularly happy that were book related. I really loved doing the first one and showcasing all the positivity that is happening around the book community at the moment.

For a long time i was unable to read with noise around me. I liked to read completely on my own and in silence. Ever since i found a love of reading in cafes and public places, obviously i had to get used to noise and music being on constantly. I ended up finding it pretty relaxing whilst reading.

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is my top 5 gateway books. A ‘gateway book’ is a book that introduces you to a genre.

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!
