Once upon A time- #2014bloggerchallenge

Hey Guys,
For this weeks #bloggerchallenge2014 the topic is Books! Books is something I have been wanting to bring into my blog for a while for I thought this was the perfect opportunity.
So to start off with I thought I'd share with you all my favourite books.

1. One day by David Nichols - This book is about two characters and we see them the same day every day once a year. So you see them falling in and out of love, growing up and changing.
 I read this book so many years ago and to be honest it was the first "adult book" I read and I loved it so much. It is so much better than the film and I certainly recommend it. The story is so clever and it was also the first book that made me cry. 

2. Threads by Sophia Bennet -This was my favourite book as a child. It's about three teen girls who live in London.  They spend their time in the V&A museum and meet a little refugee girl with an amazing fashion talent. The main character dreams of working in the fashion industry. I found this book amazing and inspirational as a child, I loved the fashion industry and it made me so happy. There is another two books in the series No spoilers but in the end there is a trip to Paris fashion week.

3. The fault in our stars by John Green - I'm sure you all know about this book, if not then where the hell have you been! Its the most beautiful real piece of modern literature. Its about two teenagers recovering from cancer togheter and they fall in love. There is so many themes in the book and the characters are so likable and realistic. Warning you will need tissues!! The film trailer has just been released so you better get reading haha! :) 

4.Before I die by Jenny Downham - This book is another tear jerking teen cancer romance however its so stripped back and it is so beautifully written it effected me differently to TFIOS. This book also has a movie by the name of 'Now is good' staring Dakota Fanning, as I am sure you can all guess the book was a lot better for so many reason but I recommend them both.

5. The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks- For any romance lover this is one of those must reads! I'm sure you all know the story but once again you will certainly be needing tissues. It's one of my favourite stories of all time but for the story not the writing I always find Nicholas' writing style difficult to get into.

6. The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chboskey - I will admit I only picked up this book because of all the hype surrounding it and boy am I glad I did. It is a little bit different to all the books I normally read. To sum up why I loved it. It is about an unpopular teen obsessed with reading and the rocky horror show 'nuff said I think in all seriousness
 it is an amazingly thought provokingly deep and the plot isn't predictable. Some people say its too deep and dark but I loved it.
The film was amazing on its own but for different reasons some scenes work much better in the book because a lot of it is about the main character Charlie's thoughts however the character's where portrayed so well in the film and it was just so enjoyable.

These are my all time favourite books so far however I am yet to read a book I have hated so this was very hard for me to narrow down.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, if you want to see more book posts in the future let me know in the comments.

Thanks for reading!
Love Charlotte
