Hey guys, today I’m going a little crazy and talking about my favourite books. This is a kind of nerve-wracking post because how can this be a list of my favourite books of all time if I am only 17?
This list is, of course, susceptible to change but, at the moment these are my top 5 favourite books!
Remember to click on the book cover to go the Goodreads pages!
WITHOUT FURTHER ADO AND IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER,
THESE ARE MY FAVOURITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME…
HUNTING PRINCE DRACULA
I love this book. That is a given considering the title and subject of this post but god damn, I can’t mention this book without talking about how much I love it.
I love Stalking Jack The Ripper and I honestly didn’t think it could better but when I read HPD earlier this year my mind was blown. Blood was splattered and I was full on in love with the characters Kerri Maniscalco has created.
I wrote a blog post earlier this year talking about some recent favourite reads of mine and I really went into why I love this series, which you can read here. To sum everything up, while also taking into account that books 3 and 4 aren’t out yet, I can tell you that I love this series because of its spunky mc, swoon-worthy love interest and gory murder mysteries.
I have only really read this one book about vegetarianism and while I would love to read more books on this subject, I do own this one so I know I will definitely be reading this in the future because of how much I love this book. I always recommend this book to people who might be considering going vegetarian, if not just because it really goes into the meat industry in America. I honestly think that everyone one should read this book at once in their life.

SIMON VS. THE HOMO SAPIEN’S AGENDA
This is one of the only ya high school contemporaries that I would and could happily read once a month every year, purely just because it makes me happy. I love Simon Spier and I love Bram and I love Oreos.
This is just a fun novel that makes me feel genuinely excited whenever I decide I want to re-read it. I honestly can’t wait until the movie comes out on digital so I can watch it in the background all but constantly just because of the happy feeling I always get from the story. Also, who doesn’t love a good cry?
THE SEVEN HUSBANDS OF EVELYN HUGO
Of all the books on this list, this is the book I’ve read most recently. In fact, I only read it in March so it’s kind of a crazy feeling for it to be in my top 5. This is a fantastic and really unique book. I know that everyone says that their favourite books are unique, but I honestly believe that this one is. There are news clippings and articles interspersed between the story, while the story is also split into different sections – each focussing on Evelyn’s life with each husband.
I love this book, not just because of the phenomenal writing and unreliable mc, but because the book subtly goes into the Hollywood and film industry. It really delves into how difficult it can be to stick to who you are when everyone is expecting you to conform to a certain mould within society.
I read this one in the very backend of last year and absolutely loved it! I had already seen the film so I really didn’t expect to love the book as much as I did! This book was a total whirlwind of emotions for me. I cried, I laughed, I got really f’ing mad and I got very worried x10. I was listening to this last year so basically, I paired THE most stressful book with one of the most stressful activities, which evidently was not wise because guess who ended up cutting up her sheets! Sorry, mum!
In summary, this book is ridiculously stressful and you should all read it/
