Top Five Wednesdays started on Goodreads back in 2013. At the beginning of every month Sam from ThoughtsOnTomes posts a topic for each Wednesday and bloggers, vloggers and overall book fans are encouraged to respond with their top five.
This week is books as event themes—meaning proms, birthday parties, weddings, etcetera. Let me know what your top five are in the comments!
1. To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
Just look at this book—the aesthetic is so on point and I would totally want it for one of my parties. Everything would fall into this off-white pinkish color scheme and people could dress up in cute vintage and quirky outfits—just like Lara Jean. And of course, there would be a ton of baked goods.
2. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas
I would do a court-themed party—most likely Night Court. Just think of the beautiful evening and star decorations. And everyone could wear the court attire. I’m really just to into this series. Summer Court would be pretty if it was a daytime party though.
3. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
I know this is a bit of a cliche—tons of people have parties themed around Wonderland. But, this is a favorite story of mine. I really just love it. Having a tea party set up and just all the details of the story incorporated would be so special to me.
4. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I love the 20s. It is a decade that really speaks to me. I would never be able to replicate the scale or extravagance Gatsby’s parties—imagine the movie version with Leo—but would like the cultural and fashion aspects incorporated into some type of soiree.
5. Percy Jackson by Rick Riordan
Recreating Camp Half-Blood for a summer bash would be pretty cool—at least I think. Like having the different areas—archery, crafts, whatever—set up and maybe do like themed food, such as “nectar.” Maybe even dubbing some spots certain cabins and having more themed stuff there. I don’t know, I just want to be a demigod.
