Hello and welcome back to another Six for Sunday (you can find the prompts here!). This weekend I’ve made more Minnie Mouse ears (if you follow me on Twitter and/or Instagram you’ll have seen my first pair!) and then haven’t got as far as planning today! Anyway, this week’s Six for Sunday is:
Books that made you want to shout…
I’ve gone for positive shouting, in the sense of these are books that I just want to shout out about as much as possible, throw into people’s hands…quite literally.
1. The Goldfish Boy by Lisa Thompson
I ADORE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. PLEASE READ IT.
I want everyone to read this book to truly get an idea of what OCD is like. Plus, it’s a fab mystery. It’s a win-win.
2. A Quiet Kind of Thunder by Sara Barnard
The anxiety representation in here is fantastic! My YA Book of the Year 2017.
3. Worries Go Away by Kes Gray, Lee Wildish
GAH! THIS BOOK! I am literally the little girl, and I think so many people will relate. This book is essential for little people, for big people…for everyone! Plus, Kes Gray signed my copy and wrote the cutest message and I love him for it.
4. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
I understand that this one is a little bit more controversial, but I LOVE it. For me, the main message is about how your actions can impact upon others and it’s about making the right choices and so many people would benefit from learning that.
5. Midnight for Charlie Bone by Jenny Nimmo
I. Love. This. Series.
The Children of the Red King series is one of the most underrated; jenny Nimmo’s writing is exquisite and she’s crafted an amazing story set within our world. Fans of Harry Potter will LOVE this, and I want more people to read it!
6. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
So, last but not least, and no list would be complete without this one, is Harry Potter. BECAUSE HARRY POTTER IS THE BEST. If you’ve been living under a rock, or just have never fancied reading it because of the hype…IT IS THE BEST SERIES OF ALL TIME FOR A REASON.
I really enjoyed today’s topic! Would you agree or disagree with any of these? What books would you shout about?
