Top 5 Wednesday: Second Book is Better


Hey guys, it’s Lois. I’m back with another Top 5 Wednesday. This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is meant to be characters fitness routines you’d want but I really can’t think of any fitness routines in books I’ve read. So, instead I am going to do last weeks topic of second book is better.  Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly challenge, find the Goodreads group here.

1) Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

12510082.jpg (This is the synopsis for the first book to avoid spoilers.)

“The nation of Panem, formed from a post-apocalyptic North America, is a country that consists of a wealthy Capitol region surrounded by 12 poorer districts. Early in its history, a rebellion led by a 13th district against the Capitol resulted in its destruction and the creation of an annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. In punishment, and as a reminder of the power and grace of the Capitol, each district must yield one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 through a lottery system to participate in the games. The ‘tributes’ are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory.” 

I was a big fan of the first Hunger Games book but as soon as I read the second book I knew that would be my favourite in the series. It is so much more action-packed than the other two books and its storyline in my opinion is much more interesting. I remember I read Catching Fire in a couple days whereas the other books took me at least a week to read.

2) Chamber of Secrets by J.K Rowling

224912.jpg“The Dursleys were so mean and hideous that summer that all Harry Potter wanted was to get back to the Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. But just as he’s packing his bags, Harry receives a warning from a strange, impish creature named Dobby who says that if Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts, disaster will strike.

And strike it does. For in Harry’s second year at Hogwarts, fresh torments and horrors arise.”

It should be known that Chamber of Secrets is my favourite book in the Harry Potter series. I blame this on the fact I have read it many more times than the other books. But, this topic is perfect for this book as I think Chamber of Secrets is better than Philosopher’s Stone and is my favourite in the series.

3) P.S I Still Love You by Jenny Han

“What if all the crushes you ever had found out how you felt about them… all at once?

Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean Song keeps her love letters in a hatbox her mother gave her. They aren’t love letters that anyone else wrote for her; these are ones she’s written. One for every boy she’s ever loved—five in all. When she writes, she pours out her heart and soul and says all the things she would never say in real life, because her letters are for her eyes only. Until the day her secret letters are mailed, and suddenly, Lara Jean’s love life goes from imaginary to out of control.”

I loved this book! Don’t get me wrong I thought the first book in the series was fantastic too. The second book however made me so much happier and I read it so much quicker. I feel like it might be because you know the characters more in the second book and this book felt more full of information than the first.

There you have it, this weeks Top 5 Wednesday, second book is better. Sorry there are only three books on this list I haven’t read that many book series.
