My top 5 Books

Hey guys,
Today i thought i would take to you about  books i would Recommend to everyone to read. I have thought long and hard which books i would recommend and came up with my top five books. There is a bit of everything in my selection, just no si-fi as i have never really been into si-fi.
I would like to start by saying these are all my own opinions, if you have a few favorite books write it in a comment below and i will try and read the books.
As a child, at the school i went to, we had to read out loud to teachers and parents and the b etter you were at reading the quicker you would get to a free reader, which means you can choose what books you read, when you read them and you had a choice if you wanted to read them to parents and teachers. I was the first one in my year at school to become a free reader, and the other kids took awhile longer than myself, i have always been a book worm and probably will be till i die, i love reading. I thinkyou learn so much from reading and you created a brilliant imagination. One day i will hopefully have my own book out or maybe even a mini series.
My Top 5 Books:
1) Ghost girl By Torey Hayden.
I love true stories and stories of damaged people, i'm not sick in the head i find them very inspirational. You tend to look at what is good in your life instead of the bad once you begin to read these stories and they turned me into a better person. You can purchase this book from Waterstones £6.99. Synopsis: A stunning and poignant account of an extraordinary teacher's determination from the author of the #1 Sunday Times bestsellers The Tiger's Child and One Child. Jadie never spoke, never laughed, never cried. She spent every waking hour locked in her own private world of shadows. But nothing in Torey Hayden's experience had prepared her for the nightmare Jadie revealed to her when finally persuaded to break her self-imposed silence. It was a story too painful, too horrific for Hayden's professional colleagues to acknowledge. But Torey Hayden could not close her ears! or her heart. A little girl was trapped in a living hell of unspeakable memories. And it would take every ounce of courage, compassion, and love that one remarkable teacher possessed to rid the "Ghost Girl" of the malevolent spirits that haunted her
2)The book or tomorrow by Cecelia ahern.
This story was one i didn't think i would like all that much and when i started reading i couldn't put the book down. From cover to cover you will be sucked in and it is easy to read. You can purchase this also from Waterstones for £7.99. Synopsis: Lose yourself in the magical and mesmerising story from Cecelia Ahern of how tomorrow can change what happens today. Sometimes tomorrow has to start today! Tamara Goodwin has always lived in the here and now, never giving a second thought to tomorrow. Until a travelling library arrives in her tiny village, bringing with it a mysterious, large leather-bound book locked with a gold clasp and padlock. What she discovers within the pages takes her breath away and shakes her work to its core.
3) Sister By Rosamund Lupton.
This book touched my heart, as at the time i was have massive family problems(a personal matter) and this books stuck out like a sore thumb in the shop as its cover was beautiful black and white except for the word sister in bright red, they say never judge a book by its cover but that day i did. You will love this story from cover to cover it's a warming tale, that helped me through my troubles. You can purchase this from Waterstones for £7.99. Synopsis: Nothing can break the bond between sisters ...When Beatrice gets a frantic call in the middle of Sunday lunch to say that her younger sister, Tess, is missing, she boards the first flight home to London. But as she learns about the circumstances surrounding her sister's disappearance, she is stunned to discover how little she actually knows of her sister's life - and unprepared for the terrifying truths she must now face. The police, Beatrice's fiance and even their mother accept they have lost Tess but Beatrice refuses to give up on her. So she embarks on a dangerous journey to discover the truth, no matter the cost.
4) Laura's Handmade life By Amanda Addison.
I loved this book, it's a great title too hehe. Like the others this is an inspirational story, as when your world has been turned upside down you can always put it back together again. I have recommended this book to a few people already and they also loved this book. you can purchase this book from Waterstones for £6.99. Synopsis:
Laura Lovegrove is leaving behind her seamless life in London. Architect husband Adi has been relocated to rural Norfolk, a far cry from ultra-urban Ealing. Though Laura knew village life would be different, she didn't foresee a pokey cottage, nosey neighbours, errant poodles, and even an ex turning up. Chris had been her big love at art college and seeing him again is utterly confusing. Is she really so different from the impulsive student who once trawled charity shops for vintage treasures? When a fire all but destroys Laura's collection of vintage clothes, she's heartbroken. And seriously lacking in outfits. But, salvaging what she can, Laura makes do and mends - sewing purses, bags, even dog leads (which should solve the poodle problem). Soon, she's inundated with orders. But Adi is becoming more and more distant; it's like there's something he's not telling her. Can Laura make a stitch in time and pull her family back together again?
5) The boy in the stripped pyjamas by John Boyne.
This book was actually recommeneded to me by a family member and since i have raved about this book. It is another inspirational story. I would have liked it if it was a bigger story as i read this within a day. You can purchase thie from Waterstones for £6.99. Synopsis: Lines may divide us, but hope will unite us ...Nine-year-old Bruno knows nothing of the Final Solution and the Holocaust. He is oblivious to the appalling cruelties being inflicted on the people of Europe by his country. All he knows is that he has been moved from a comfortable home in Berlin to a house in a desolate area where there is nothing to do and no one to play with. Until he meets Shmuel, a boy who lives a strange parallel existence on the other side of the adjoining wire fence and who, like the other people there, wears a uniform of striped pyjamas. Bruno's friendship with Shmuel will take him from innocence to revelation. And in exploring what he is unwittingly a part of, he will inevitably become subsumed by the terrible process.

I would recommend for those who, don't want to pay alot of money for a book they may or may not like, sign up to a library as it is free unless you keep a book for too long and if you do enjoy the book you can always go a purchse it for yourself. I would also recommend if you are a book worm like myself sign up to Readers Digest. I hope you find time to read these great books and leave a comment below with your favorite books also. I will be back shortly with my top 5 series of books.
