top 5 wednesday


Here is again another Top 5 Wednesday created by Lainey @ GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join, you can click here to view her Goodreads account.

So, the topic for today is books with characters that have certain illnesses.

This has been one tricky pick on my part since I haven’t read that much books regarding characters with illnesses. May it be mental, cancer or anything alike.

So without any further adieu, here are my picks.

5 The Fault in Our Stars


This book has been one of the most popular books I have read and I must say, this is one hell of a tearjerker! Both of the characters have cancer but death is not the main reason why this tearjerker made me cry. It is the fact that an unexpected ending came and changed everything that I thought was coming.

4 All the Bright Places


This is a story about a girl named Violet and a boy named Finch. In this story, Finch, the boy who tried to jump on the ledge of their school bell tower, has what we call Manic Disorder or what we’ve commonly known as Bipolar Disorder. It is the disorder of the extremes. Extreme happiness and extreme depression.

3 A Walk to Remember


Who would ever forget this phenomenal classic love story about a boy who fell in love with a girl whom he never thought he’d learn how to love? This is a story of a girl named Jamie who was diagnosed with Leukemia, a type of blood cancer that arises when there is over production of white blood cells in the blood.

2 We Were Liars


This book is one of the best portrayal of Selective Amnesia. Cadence, after Summer Fifteen, never remembered anything from that day she was found at the beach, curled into a ball. Until that day of Summer Seventeen.

1 Everything Everything


This is the most unique book in this category. It tells us the story of Madeline, a girl who is literally allergic to anything. But when a boy next door came into her life, everything changes.

So, there you have it. My picks for this week’s theme, Top Books with Health Issues.

What’s yours?

    I really want to read All the Bright Places. How’s the story? Is that good?

    Have you read Ways To Live Forever by Sally Nicholls? It was one of my favorite books. And there’s My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult, also in my favorite shelf.
