Top Five Tuesday is hosted by Bionic Book Worm. This week’s theme is “Top Five Books I’d Save From A Fire.”
5. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by JK Rowling
Okay, this might be an odd choice for a single book. But this was my first ever midnight release book. We stopped at Walmart in Clayton, Georgia after I spent a week with my grandparents in Atlanta. I ran in, picked a book off the top of the stack as the stockperson was taking it to the shelf, and ran to the register. I couldn’t wait to read it, so I walked to the car in the pouring rain with the book open, and the first six pages of my copy have hardcore water damage. But I wouldn’t have it any other way.
4. Oh the Places You’ll Go by Dr. Seuss
This was a copy my mom got for me after my college graduation. I mean, I have to keep it!
3. Lirael by Garth Nix
I tend to start series with the second book, since I’m a weirdo. But this copy is battered, worn out, about to fall apart. But so help me if something happens to it!
2. Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain by Charles R. Cross
I was a sad, strange little child. I carried this book everywhere with me in seventh and eighth grade. I was obsessed. And since I just turned 27 like, three days ago, it’s haunting me lately.
1. Exit Here. by Jason Myers
Remember how I was a strange child? This book right here…it gives me so many emotions. Even though these characters are so much older than I was when I first read it, it fit in with my life. My “friends” were those douchey jerks in the book. I knew these people, even if we were in the middle of nowhere. I’d have to keep my, again, battered copy.
