Ten Influential Books.

One of my favourite videos to watch over on booktube is the 10 influential books tag, mostly because I'm nosy and I think it's incredibly interesting to have a little peek at some of the books that in many respects have helped shape someone. But I also really like it because one of the 'rules' is that you don't have to explain why and that element of mystery really appeals to me! So with that being said, here are 10 books that may not be in my ultimate favourites, but still hold a special place in my heart.

+ Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
+ The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
+ Matilda by Roald Dahl
+ Tom's Midnight Garned b Philippa Pearce
+ Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell

+ No one belongs here more than you by Miranda July
+ Nausea by Jean-Paul Sartre
+ Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier
+ Howl, Kaddish and Other Poems by Allen Ginsberg
+ The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I'd love for you to share a few of the books that have meant a lot to you in your life so far!



  1. The Twits & Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl, King Lear by Shakespeare, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. They are the only ones I can think of without checking my bookshelves! Haha.

  2. Yes yes yes! Rebecca, Gatsby, and Perks of Being a Wallflower I totally agree! But I have to add The Book Thief and probably something by Jacqueline Wilson who got me into reading as a kid :D

    1. Ohh yes, Jacqueline Wilson books were a staple in my younger reading too! xo

  3. love that you did this Jennie! i knew your list would be a good one :) x

  4. ooh, I didn't know about this being a tag (I'm new to the booktuber world), so I'm def. going to do it! Have to think of 10 books now, I usually make lists of 5.

    The Great Gatsby has been in my TBR list for ages.

  5. Oh my goodness, absolutely! I have so many but 1984 is definitely up there, A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I am one for the classics!
