Top 5 Tuesday – Books with Books

Welcome to this week’s Top 5 Tuesday post. Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is now being hosted at Meeghan reads!! For details of all of the prompts for Jan- Mar see Meeghans page here

March is a month of scavenger hunts through our book shelves for the different themes. So far we’ve done doors, thrones, jewels and clocks but we are now down to the last which is my absolute favourite as it’s books with books!!! Who doesn’t love books about books? Just for this week, I actually had difficulty in deciding what my top 5 would be as I had a lot more than 5 to choose from.

These are the top 5 books with books which I have read in the past year.

This is possibly the best book cover and also the best Middle Grade book that I read last year.

Rachel and Robert have to uncover the secret of The Book of Stolen Dreams in order to save their father’s life. It’s a thrilling fantasy adventure and brilliantly written.

Another absolutely brilliant book about books. A mysterious reading list links a library volunteer and a lonely widower and they begin a new friendship. It’s a gorgeous read and definitely inspired me to read the books on the list.

One of the books featured on the reading list is Pride and Prejudice. This is the untold of Mary Bennett and another book that I absolutely loved last year.

Not many books make me laugh out loud but this was one of them. Nina Hill is a complete book worm and lives her life by her daily planner. Everything is perfect until one day, she receives some very unexpected news.

My final book is about a library threatened with closure. I think the current title is The Last Chance Library which actually makes more sense. This was a lovely book full of great characters and another of my favourite books about books.

What would your top 5 books with books be?

Thanks Meeghan for a great set of challenges. It’s been a lot of fun finding books each week. This week was definitely my favourite.

  1. Oh I’m so glad you liked this week’s topic!! It’s definitely my favourite of this month. AND I’m thinking of doing the freebie in May on 5 more books with books because it was so hard to choose and I have so many more!!
    In saying that, I’m not sad to be leaving the scavenger hunt behind πŸ˜‚

  2. I love this topic!! I was so hoping to get to Bookish Life of Nina Hill this month and I think I’ve run out of time! I hope to get to it soon but so many ARCs next month! Great list.
