Top 5 Wednesday – February 17th, 2016


Hey Guys! This is my first Top 5 Wednesday post! So exciting! Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey over at Gingerreadslainey. If you didn’t already know, every week you’re given a topic where you have to respond with your top 5 books relating to that topic.

It was because I get books recommendations ALL THE TIME. Which I love. I’m always asking people to recommend books to me. And then there’s Goodreads. Ahh Goodreads… Sometimes you’re on point and I really like you for it. And don’t even get me started on Tumblr. You don’t even have to ask. They attack you with recommendations and I love it? Yes, yes I do. The books that I’ve chosen for this list I picked for the memories behind them.

Anyway, lets get on with the countdown shall we…
