5 Favourite…. | #1

Favourite Stand Alone’s! Today’s post is for 5 of my favourite stand alone books. Meaning, these books aren’t part of a series, or any duology’s. They have no other books; they stand alone.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Before reading this, I had heard whisperings of this novel here and there. It was talked about, but not really known. And then BAM! The Night Circus was everywhere; pretty much overnight, might I add. So I borrowed it from the library, tried to read it, failed, and then returned it. When I bought The Night Circus myself though, I was able to read it! Yay! And after I got the hang of the writing, I absolutely fell in love! I love the magical themes in this story. I love how there are two separate stories that converged into one. I absolutely adore Celia and Marco. This Night Circus is my favourite of them all!

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

is a book that I’ve tried a million times to reread, but nothing will ever be like the first time I read the novel. I actually won Ugly Love through a giveaway, and I’ve practically worshipped it ever since! I love the drama and smut in this book. Unfortunately, I feel as though if I say anymore about Ugly Love, I may spoil something!

Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz.

I hadn’t really had this novel on my radar before I actually read this book because really, whenever I heard about this book, I just brushed it off of my shoulder (much to my demise). I thought that Aristotle and Dante’s story wouldn’t be a good one. I was so off base! I connected with Ari, pretty much the moment he started talking in the novel. Which I’m pretty sure is from the start. From there on out, I stood up for Aristotle when I could, and when I couldn’t, I wished with all my might that he would be alright!

Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl is the first that came to mind. I absolutely love this book. Even though I’ve only read this book once.. Fangirl and the characters in this story resonated with me in a way that I don’t think I can describe. I love the way that Fangirl was written. This book actually inspired me to go back to school; even though I haven’t done so.. yet. I have yet to break in my personal copy. You’ll soon realize that I love libraries.. I’m hoping to revisit these characters sometime soon!

The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson

A novel that I don’t hear about all that often, actually. I borrowed this book from the library; as I do, and quickly fell in love with everything. The writing, the storyline, the truths, the betrayals. The poetry. The poetry is what got to me the most. Even the covers for this book are beautiful. And I feel that Lennie; the main character, is a very real, very relatable character. Lennie is down to earth and still has those teenage problems. And if you’re wondering why there are only 4 books in the picture, it’s actually because I don’t yet own The Sky is Everywhere.

These 5 stand alone’s are just some of my favourite stand alone’s, yet alone favourite books. And funnily enough, these 5 books are the first books that I’ve read by all these authors. Anyway.. What are your favourite stand alone’s?

Thank you for reading. I’ll see you next time!
Adele.
