Top 5 Tuesday: 5 books I’d save from a fire

This week’s topic for Top 5 Tuesday, as you’ll see from the title is “5 Books I’d save from a fire.” Essentially 5 books I’d say are irreplaceable to me.


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

I’ve had my copy of the Philosopher’s Stone since I was about seven years old, so it’s incredibly battered. Naturally I’d choose to save my whole Harry Potter collection but if I could only choose 1 it would be PS. I got my copy from my grandparents so it’s extra special there, and I don’t think I’d be reading today if I hadn’t had HP growing up.

P.S. I Love You

No, this isn’t the best written book in the world, but it’s the book that taught me that grief is a natural process and that you do get through it. It’s the book I always turn to when I want to read something sad but funny.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower

This book is probably one of my favourite I’ve read where a character has a mental health condition, and it’s one of my favourite American books.

Another Night Another Day

Again this is a great book about mental health, and it felt closer to my experience of having mental health issues, I think especially because it’s focused round the British system and it’s a bit more realistic than Perks.

And then there were none

This is my favourite crime novel I’ve read, and despite the fact that I know the ending I can never see the clues if I reread it. This makes it into so many of my top lists, but I just really love it.

I’m looking forward to seeing what other people have said they would save! Let me know if there’s anything here that you’ve read and love too.
