Guess who’s baaaaaaaack! It seriously feels like ages….It’s been like two weeks…But yes! I’m finaaaally writing agaiiiiiin!
Anyhooooows a few weeks back I read this post by A Whisper of Ink called “10 Titles that Describe my Monstrous soul Perfectly #relatable + all the Aesthetics”. And ahhh I loved it sooo much! It’s an amazing post so please please please check it out!
I thought I would give it a try for myself and decided to do a few aesthetic boards (or whatever they’re called…) of a few of my favourite books. I know I know, this isn’t the most creative idea I’ve ever had but it’s going to have to do for now XD.
1. Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
I’m reading this book in school actually (in french though XD) and quite enjoyed it actually! I’m not much of a sci-fi fan but I really liked the book. The time of the release of this book was 1953 which is 8 years after the second world war and I think that Bradbury was still scared by it (which makes complete sense) which led to the creation of the book. A lot of elements described in this futuristic world are what the Nazis tried (and did do) to people. For example, in Fahrenheit 451 (which is the temperature that books burn by the way), you notice from the very start that the government tries to control the people and ban reading. Instead of preventing fires, firefighters light fires and burn books. Bradbury’s interpretation focuses on the historical role of book burning in suppressing dissenting ideas.
2. Paper Towns – John Green
I really really enjoy John Green’s books. They aren’t like the others. The way he writes makes you really reevaluate your life (experience done!). Even though the end of Paper Towns is kind of disappointing, it shows that life isn’t perfect and that happy endings don’t always occur in real life. I find the book really realistic and just amazing in general!
3. The Fault In Our Stars – John Green
Right, I really don’t know where to start with this one! I absolutely love the fact that John Green doesn’t sugar coat the truth. Because the truth is that life is messed up sometimes and bad things happen, but that’s just the way it works. Hazel Grace suffers from lung cancer and, well, yeah, she is going to die! But only because the future might be terrible doesn’t mean that the present is. The fact is, that we should learn to live in the present and stop ruining it by worrying about the what happens next. Death is a part of life and we are all going to die in the end, but not everyone is worried about it. We only start worrying about death when we find out that there is a certainty of it. Nobody thinks about the fact that we could die at any moment because we don’t know when it’s going to happen and how but when you the reason of it, everyone worries. The fact that he can express all of that in a book is truly amazing and I absolutely love him for that.
4. Vampire Academy – Richelle Mead
Many of you know that I absolutely love this series and I seriously recommend this to all teenagers!!!! Her writing is..just…so wonderful. The way she describes the characters emotions is really really good (may sound like a weird compliment but, seriously, it’s amazing!) and if you don’t have anything to read and love vampires, read this!!!!!!
5. Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling
I don’t think I even have to explain why I’m doing this one! I did a board for all the houses and for Hogwarts itself because why not!

“With a lion as it’s crest and Professor McGonagall at i’ts head, Gryffindor is the house which most values the virtues of courage, bravery and determination.”
S L Y T H E R I N
“Slytherin produces more than it’s share of Dark wizards but also turns out leaders who are proud, ambitious and cunning. Merlin is one particularly famous Slytherin.”
R A V E N C L A W
“Ravenclaws prize wit, learning, and wisdom. It’s an ethos etched into founder Rowena Ravenclaw diadem: ‘wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure’.”
H U F F L E P U F F
“Hufflepuffs value hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play. The house has produced its share of great wizards – not least Newt Scamander, author of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”
I really hoped you enjoyed this post and tell me in the comments which one is your favourite, I’d love to know!
