This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is based around New Year! It’s quickly approaching, just in a few days, and i’m excited to find out what the new year will bring in the case of reading. But before that, i got to think about all the characters i love, and the ones that i would want around me bringing in the new year. I thought about this quite a lot, because you’d want the most special people around, the ones that you think you’d get on with best. So here is the list of characters i’d like to spend my new years eve with.

Top 5 Series’ That Got Worse Each Season/Book

25632568773_33c9c34db3_b

This week is a little different as it is open to TV as well as books and I thought I would take up that opportunity and make this post a mixture between the two (I say, adding only one TV show). We have all experienced the feeling of picking up a book or starting a show and it’s brilliant and when you find out it’s a series, even better. Until you start to read or watch the next one and it all begins to snowball downhill… Here’s five of my choices!

Top 5 Favourite Villains

25632568773_33c9c34db3_b

I’ve been really excited about this particular topic as I love finding interesting villains who are brilliant characters. There’s nothing better than reading a book and finding the villain to be just as interesting (if not more) than the protagonist and the heroes of the story. Normally, my first choice would be Bellatrix (I could write a whole post on her alone) but I’m going to be avoiding Harry Potter characters for this week as I want to mention some who maybe aren’t as obvious.

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday post is the five books that i want to re-read the most. I have never been a lover of re-reading books unless i’m absolutely obsessed with them, i don’t see the point in revisiting stories unless you really really want to. But there are some books that i will re-read over and over again and still love. Here are the books that i currently want to re-read.

Top 5 Favourite Publishers

25632568773_33c9c34db3_b

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.

Top 5 Characters You Used To Love, But No Longer Do

25632568773_33c9c34db3_b

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.

Top 5 Most Misleading Synopses

25632568773_33c9c34db3_b

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! On the other hand, I have also picked up books which sound brilliant and don’t live up to their synopsis. 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.
