Five Friday Favourites is a fun weekly meme that allows participants to get involved in a prompt either book or life related and list their favourites. Feel free to do more than five favourites, however, we'd appreciate it if you didn't go over ten where possible and interpret the subject however you like. Just link back to Book Badger if you're participating.
Hello all, how are you on this glorious Friday? Looking forward to the weekend? This weeks Five Friday Favourites post focuses on our five favourite books read between April and August. This was a hard topic, as I've read a lot of good books recently and 8 of the books I've read between April and August have ended up on my all-time favourites list. It was hard to narrow the list down to five, so (unfortunately?) I've got 6 to show you today. The list will be in the order in which I finished the books.

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta: I know, I know. I've spoken about this book a lot. I won't bore you with blabbing on about it again.
The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater: A lot of people don't finish The Raven Boys because it's confusing. And I don't blame them for that. I almost did the same. However, I pushed on with The Raven Boys and found it intriguing, but that was all. I wasn't in love with it. However, when I read The Dream Thieves, I fell in love with the series and now I need Blue Lily, Lily Blue right NOW!
Faking Normal by Courtney C. Stevens: Such a beautiful, beautiful story. Words can't even explain. I can't wait to read something else from Courtney.
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz: Another book that needs no explanation.
Every Word by EllieMarney: Another case where I loved the sequel even more. Mycroft. London. Sherlock-inspired. Give me Every Move now.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: Right up my alley. Everything I hoped for and more. I wish I could review this book, because I have a lot to say about it, but unfortunately, I can't seem to formulate my thoughts into coherent sentences.
What book have you read between the months of April and August have you absolutely fell in love with?
Until next time,
