T5W: Books I Wish I’d Read Sooner

This weeks T5W topic is books I wish I’d read sooner. So this post is a strange mix of books I would have enjoyed as a kid/teenager, and books I think taught me important things about life!

It’s no secret that I only read this series this year, and I definitely agree I should have read them sooner and I’d have loved them as a kid!

I just finished this book yesterday (review coming soon), and I definitely wish I’d read it as a child.

I adored this book when I read it last year, but I think my ever so slightly younger self would have loved it even more.

Same with this book! I read it earlier this year, but give me this a couple of years ago and I would have devoured it.

This one, alongside A Quiet Kind of Thunder taught me a lot about mental and physical health conditions. They definitely taught me important life lessons and I wish I’d carried them throughout my teenage years.

Which books would you give to your younger self?


May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽

  1. Love this T5W! The HP books were like the first ones I ever read haha, and I’m so glad I read them that soon in my life! It’s funny because I often say that I wish I’d read (a certain book) when I was younger, but now that I’m trying to think of titles, none come to mind.

    But I’d probably say The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Because. It. Perfect.

  2. ooh this is such an interesting question! i’ve loved Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland for a long time (no secret), but i wish i read it earlier because it functions totally differently as a children’s book. i wish i experienced it in a lot of different ways!
