I know what you guys are thinking. "Hayley, purple should not be in your book rainbow series. Purple is not a colour of the rainbow. It should be indigo and then violet. Idiot." I know, I know. But I'm not the best with colours, I struggle to tell the difference between indigo and violet so I just lumped them together into the one blog post. So sue me.
Insurgent by Veronica Roth - If you ask me, this is the best book in the Divergent Trilogy which I'm sure you've all heard of by now. This series is quite popular since the Divergent movie was released and the trailer for Insurgent was released recently. I've still not seen either yet! This is a young adult dystopian series. I don't want to talk about the plot too much because this is the 2nd book but I will say that I really enjoyed this series and do recommend it.
Quidditch Through The Ages by J. K. Rowling - This is a little companion novel to the Harry Potter series. I really wanted to like this one but it is essentially a book about sport. I'm not a hugely sporty person and even thought this is about quidditch, its still a bit boring. Fun fact: my university has a quidditch team.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkabhan by J. K. Rowling - Weirdly enough this is possibly my least favourite Harry Potter book. Its between this one and the Order of the Phoenix. I do really love the introduction of the care of magical creatures classes however and of course, Sirius Black. If you haven't read these books then you need to get on that ASAP because that is just not acceptable.
The Meaning Of Life by Joanna Nadin - This is a book in the Rachel Riley's Diary series. This was a series that I read a lot when I was younger. Maybe 11-14 and I still can't bring myself to donate them to the charity shop. One was released quite recently and I've asked for it for Christmas.
And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini - I am usually a massive fan of Hosseini's books, especially A Thousand Splendid Suns but I wasn't the biggest fan of his latest offering. This is the story about a young boy who would do anything for his little sister. One day she is adopted by a rich family and he never sees her again. The story was really interested but it is told from the perspective of loads of different characters which was very confusing.
The Carnivorous Carnival by Lemony Snicket - This series made up my childhood. I have to admit that by this point in the series(9th book) the story is getting a little drawn out and repetitive but these books are still amazing. Now that I'm older I can read them in a few hours so they're good to read when I'm just looking for something fun and easy to read.
