The Beloved Books Upon My Shelf

Hi there.

First things first, I have come to the decision of changing my posting days. So, Monday’s at 3:30, and Thursday at 3:30 shall be my new days to post. Change is good, my friends.

On with the show.

I have decided to share my top 11Β favourite books! I’m sure you all have your favourites, but there’s no harm in providing you more options.


Also, I know it seems as if I’m becoming a bit of a “blogger”, and to that I say…you’re kind of right. It’s actually fun. Oh well, I’m enjoying myself, that’s all that counts.

As you can see, I am a pretty big fan of Jill Mansell, scratch that…HUGE fan of her. I just love her witty writing, how easy it is to visualize her unique characters, and of course, the sarcasm. I have a few of her books included in my little haul, so I shall share these amazing books with you:

  1. An Offer You Can’t Refuse
  2. Take A Chance On Me
  3. Making Your Mind Up
  4. You And Me, Always
  5. Open House

And the next book I shall recommend, is one that emotionally broke me, for about 24 hours. Seriously, it was devastatingly beautiful. The Fault In Our Stars by John Green is incredible. One book I definitely recommend to read at least once in your life. Yes, it may cause you to shed floods of tears, but I promise, it will be worth it.


Now, the next two books are tear jerkers. Well, I cried for an unnecessary amount of time, but it opened my eyes. JoJo Moyes is a gifted writer. As far as I’m concerned, Me Before You was one of the best books I’ve ever read. It taught me so much, to live my life without hesitation and doubt. To live well. Please, find it and read it. It will change how you see the world.

  1. Me Before You
  2. After You


The next book I am going to share with you, is an absolute gem, in which I still treasure to this day. Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. I read it in my early teens, after my sister and mother recommended it to me. So, we shared this book, and loved it together. It was a fabulous experience.


Now, my last book recommendation was also one I read in my very early teens. Forget by Ruth Gilligan. It was quite a powerful story, well it was for me when I was thirteen. I find the books you read in your early years, canΒ convey toΒ youΒ what the world can really be like. It can be scary, daunting, and beautiful simultaneously. There can be a happy ending, you just have to find your happiness and write your own story.


I honestly hope you enjoyed this little recommendation post. I enjoyed writing it. If you haven’t read a book for a few months, I hope this inspires you to pick up a book, and immerse yourself into a world of imagination. I know it has for me. I haven’t made time in my day, to just sit down and read. I’ve inspired myself to start reading again. Go me!

I hope Monday treats you well, and I shall see you on Thursday.

Have a lovely evening, friends! ❀

To transform a hobby into a career, could potentially be the best decision of my life.

This is a completely new journey for me to embark on.

  1. I have a Sophie Kinsella book on my shelf. My all-time favourite book? I couldn’t tell you, but I do enjoy Richard Paul Evans at this time of the year. I have likely read The Christmas Box a dozen times and I have cried each year.
