Top 5 Stand- Alones

Hello again! I've only done one 'Top 5' post in the past, so I thought it would be fun to do another one now. The list I've chosen to do today is Top 5 Stand Alone novels. I've read quite a lot of stand alones, and so it was extremely difficult for me to choose just 5 (especially as the likes of John Green and Rainbow Rowell have written a lot of stand alones that I read and loved) but I managed to choose 5 in the end and here the are:

1. Paper Towns by John Green.
I love all of John Green's books (well the 4 I've read anyway) but I decided to only choose one by him for this list. This was a very difficult choice for me between 'Paper Town' and 'The Fault in our Stars', but I came to a decision. If you haven't read this book I highly recommend it, because its mysterious, adventurous and fun and I just could not put it down!

2. Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
As with John Green, I limited myself to only one Rainbow Rowell book which was once again very difficult, and I still not 100% convinced I made the right choice. Fangirl is such a relatable book and I think that's probably why I loved it so much. Once again its a fairly light, fun and very real story. I would definitely recommend this to any fangirl/fanboy out there who I'm sure would also relate to it as I did.

3. We Were Liars by E.Lockhart
I love this book so much! It was intense and full of suspense and full of twists and surprises. You think you have an idea of what might be happening and you get theories but then the end just comes out of nowhere and completely shocks you. It is honestly what of the cleverest and most incredible books I've ever read.

4. Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohen and David Levithan
What can I say, it's a cute romance novel set in New York at Christmas (I mean is there anything better). The idea of the dare book adds an interesting twist on your average romance novel making it more exciting to read. It got me completely in the wintery Christmas mood, and I cant wait to re read it when December comes!

5. The Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
I had quite a few options for this last slot (including 'Gone Girl' and 'A Monster Calls') but I went with 'The Perk of Being A Wallflower' (and not juts because Logan Lerman's in the film). I loved that the book dealt with very real problems such as not fitting in and mental health but didn't glamourize them. It made me think a lot and left a lasting impression on me, and I read it very quickly.

Hope you enjoyed that! Bye xo
