Top 5 Wednesday | Friendships

 

I have been watching Top 5 Wednesday videos on YouTube for a while now. Top 5 Wednesday or T5W was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.

The theme for this week is the top 5 friendships in books I have read. I had a pretty hard time picking these 5 friendship. I couldn’t for the life of me think of books with friendship that I liked. I will put the books in order from 5-1. One being the most favorite.

 

5. Quentin Jacobsen, Margo Roth Spiegelman & Friends

paper towns

The first group of friends (technically two groups) are from the book Paper Towns by John Green. I loved the friendship between Quentin and Margo, even though Quentin was more of a friend than Margo. They didn’t spend a lot of time together but they knew that they could count on each other. There are also Quentin’s friends and Margo’s that unite in the end.

4. Charlie, Sam & Patrick

This group of friends are from the book The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Charlie is a shy and socially awkward boy. One day he meets Patrick and his step sister Sam. And with them he discovers the world. He gets out of his own shell.

3. Eleanor & Park

eleanor and park

This pair of friends are from the book Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. Set in 1986, Eleanor and Park meet on the school bus. Coming from two different worlds they become friends. This is so sweet and complete friendship.

2. Cath & Levi

Cath and Levi are from the book Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. (She really has a gift for writing beautiful friendships). Cath is a very shy freshman at collage. She slowly becomes friends with her roommate, Reagan, and Levi, who she thinks is Reagan’s boyfriend. What is so special about Cath and Levi’s friendship is that he never really gives up on her when she is being difficult.
I also really liked the friendship between Cath and her twin sister, Wren.

1. Harry Potter, Ron Weasley & Hermione Granger 

My favorite friends are from the Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling. I feel like they are my favorite because I grew up with them. I think that probably many feel the same way. Their friendship is like most people’s. There are ups and downs. Fight and peace.

Top 5 Wednesday | Books I’d Like to See as Movies

 

I have been watching Top 5 Wednesday videos on YouTube for a while now. Top 5 Wednesday or T5W was created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey on YouTube.

The theme for this week is the top 5 books I’d like to see as movies. It didn’t take me long to decide on what books I wanted to be turned into movies (or TV shows). I don’t know if any of these books are in the process of possibly being turned into movies or not. I will put the books in order from 5-1. One being the most anticipating.

 

5. Bones by Jan Burke:

This is the seventh book in the ‘An Irene Kelly Mystery’ series. I have not read any other book in this series. This book is about journalist Irene Kelly who goes along with the police and murderer Nick Parrish to a isolated mountain in hope that Parrish will lead them to his victims. Everything goes well until all hell brakes loose.
This book is great and would be a excellent movie for fans of horror and suspense.

4. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell:

It’s hard to only name one Rainbow Rowell novel, I would like to see all her books as movies. I have to choose Fangirl as my favorite. It’s my most resent reads and I found it easier to connect with that book than the others. Fangirl is about Cath’s college life and her fan-fiction writing about Simon Snow. It would be great if there would be scenes from her Simon Snow fanfic in the movie along with her daily life.

 Goodreads

3. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent:

This was the first book I read in 2014. Burial Rites is about the last months in the life of Agnes Magnúsdóttir who was the last person the be executed in Iceland. I think that this could be a great movie. It could have flash backs when Agnes is telling her story-for the viewer to see how things really happened. It is rumored that Jennifer Lawrence will be Agnes and Gary Ross will be the director but no other information is out yet. Who knows what will happen.

My Review

2. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons:

This is the only book that I have yet to finnish. I started it last night and am about 100 pages in and loving it so far. A historical romance set in Russia during the second World War, who wouldn’t love that?
I don’t know much about this book but as far as I have read I would like to see it as a movie.

Goodreads

1. The Diviners by Libba Bray:

Finally, the most anticipated book to movie adaptation (possibly). The Diviners by Libba Bray. There is so much that is going on in this book. The murder mystery and all the people with supernatural abilities. I think that this book, and the rest of the series, will be great as a TV series. There is to much going on to fit into one movie. The scenes with Naughty John could be so creepy!
