And so we meet again in this week's Top 5 Wednesday! Thankfully I am still able to post this amidst all the busyness that's been surrounding my life. And I am so excited for this week's topic, which is to choose Top Books You Devoured. At first I was pretty hesitant about the meaning of the word 'devoured', so I look it up on the internet (pardon my bad English). And it turns out the word can mean "read (something) quickly and eagerly". Oh I have so many books that I can include in that category. But I'll try my best to just choose 5 of my favorites for this list ;)
#5 Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
I don't know if this count as cheating, because there are five books in this series. But anyway, Percy Jackson deserves number 5 on this list, because I just keep wanting for more every time I read this book. I just love the whole mythology concept of the story ;)
I read this a few months after I'm finished with the Twilight saga; and in my opinion, this book is so much better! I instantly fell in love with the setting, the characters; and I would read this throughout the night because I can't wait to know what comes next. I heard there's going to be a sequel to this? It's expected to be published in 2015. I hope it's true, and I can't wait! (Oh, by the way, the movie adaptation was very disappointing. Read my review for the movie adaptation here.)
This one is pretty recent, and if you read my review on The Maze Runner, you would know how much I love this book. Unlike Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, I devoured on the first book more than the rest of the books in the trilogy. The book is action-packed, thrilling, and exciting; makes me want to read it all night long until it's finished. Totally devoured on this one.
Like The Maze Runner, I devoured the most on the first book of The Hunger Games trilogy. It was a super-amazing book; I love all the characters, the world building, how the story escalates; and my favorite part of course has to be The Hunger Games! And I would never ever forget Peeta Mellark, forever.
#1 Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
THIS. I read the whole series back in 2009/2010 I think, and I still remember how I really don't want to let go of this book even though it's already well past midnight. I just kept reading and reading, even though my arms hurt from holding the big book. I love this series so much, and I really want to re-read it and be reminded of all the joy I got from reading this series. Harry Potter series is number one in my list of Top Books I Devoured :')))
Next week is the last week of May!
The last topic for next week is really difficult for me;
which is to choose the Top First Sentences.
Does this mean I should start opening books one by one?
.... Not sure if I'm going to do this or not xD
