A – Z Books (pt. 5)

This week’s Top 5 Tuesday is the last in the month’s topic of A – Z books, and this time we’re covering letters U through to Z. I won’t lie, this week was impossible but thankfully Shanah gave us a cheat to pick 6 books beginning with any of those letters, so there are a few Ws! Let me know what your favourite books are beginning with these letters.

Undone – Cat Clarke

Vicky Angel – Jacqueline Wilson

I think this book is a really good way to introduce younger readers to issues around grief and loss – Jacqueline Wilson was a big part of my reading growing up and I learned about a lot of important issues through her books.

What was she thinking? – Zoe Heller

This book, which I think is better known by the film adaptation title ‘Notes on a Scandal’, was one of my favourite audiobooks I’ve listened to – it was so sinister and the characters were so well developed that despite their horrible motives they were very believable.

When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit – Judith Kerr

What a beautiful story! I think this is a great text for children (and adults) to introduce the themes of the war and what life was like for those persecuted.

Where Rainbows End – Cecelia Ahern

I’m not a big romance reader, but I loved the epistolary style of this novel and the characters are funny. It’s a great pick-me-up.

You could do something amazing with your life – Andrew Hankinson

I really enjoy true crime and I thought this novel had a really unique style being written in the 2nd person. If you’re interested in the Raoul Moat case, I’d definitely recommend.

  1. I’ve really enjoyed the tasks this month but I think we all struggled with this one. Lol! Half of my list are on my TBR shelf and X is a book I found on Amazon that I probably will read but haven’t bought yet. x
