Hi there! Today I am going to make a list of my favorite books of all time. I absolutely love reading, it is such a magical experience flipping through every page, creating your own little imagery on whats happening in the book. I have decided to make a short list of book recommendations for all of you. I have not written a lot about any of the plots (just a bit underneath some of the pictures), but I still hope you will give some of my recommendations a try :)

Day 3; Make a list of your favorite books ♡

Harry Potter by J.K Rowling
The Harry Potter book series was the reason I started to love reading. I read all of the books when I was ten years old and I have read them a countless amount of times throughout my teen years. The books creates a magical and indescribable feeling like no other and I don't even think that I have to explain the plot for any of you

All the bright places by Jennifer Niven
I have lost count of how many times I have read this book, I can't recommend it enough! All the bright places is one of my few favorite young adult categorized books. The book brings up a lot of modern day society issues such as mental health. The two main characters are both dealing with their own problems and issues, but in some way they complete each other. This is the most beautiful thing that I have ever read and I get chills just thinking about it. *disclaimer; this one might trigger you because of the mention of suicide, depression etc

The meeting of Violet Markey and Theodore Finch seems to be fate. This is a story of a girl who learns to live from a boy who wants to die

The picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Oscar Wilde is one of the authors I love with all my heart, this novel has had a great impact on me. This was the first work from Oscar Wilde that I had ever read and it blowed me away. The book is haunting, it combines beautiful writing with a deceptively simple plot.

a story of a young man and the decay of his morals after a wish is granted to him

The danish girl by David Ebershoff
This book is astonishingly beautiful and heart wrecking to read. It is set in the early 1920s and tells the story of Lili Elbe, a landscape painter from Denmark & her journey toward becoming one of the first people to undergo gender confirmation surgery. I got very interested in reading more about real life situations that has happened in the past and this book shows how the main character deals with their problems and identity emerging issues. The book has gotten a lot of critical feedback both positive and negative and I can understand that it might not be everyones cup of tea, but I will highly recommend you to give the book a try. (note; the book has also been turned into an award winning film if you want to check it out)

The perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
hands-down amazing!
If you’ve experienced the highs and lows of being in high school, chances are you’ve already heard of this book. The way that Stephen Chbosky made a diary into such an interesting reading experience astonishes me. The book is very insightful and I relate much with not only the character, but with the whole story. I cannot recommend this enough, go to the library or to the bookstore and read it right now! (the movie is also indescribably amazing)

"we accept the love we think we deserve"

Charlie is not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower.
