Top 5 Wednesday – Children’s Books

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday was soooo good, we couldn’t help but do 5 choices each. Check out our list of 20 children’s books we loved as children!

Happy Homo Book Club

T5W children's books

We’re back for Top 5 Wednesday. Fashionably late as always but still in time for the end of Wednesday! This week the Happy Homo Book Club brings you Children’s books and we’ve included some of our most loved and well-read books from when we were children. It was incredibly hard to narrow our choices down – even to 5 choices each – as we were all little bookworms as children. There are of course so many more books we would love to include, but here are 20 recommendations for now 😉


1) A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett


All of the Tiffany Aching books have a special place in my heart, more so than any other work by Pratchett. The hilarious yet homely characters really remind me of my home in Yorkshire. Of course the magic kind of helps to make fun, but the ordinariness of Tiffany…

Eurovision 2017

So, in the spirit of last minute blogging (which is my life at the moment) and in honour of Eurovision 2017 starting in half an hour, I thought it would be cool to do a quick run down of some of my favourite Eurovision songs. I had planned to do an entire Eurovision blog post but sadly the depression demon reared it’s ugly head today, but hopefully these few song recommendations will do to get you all in the Eurovision mood!

These are in no particular order because I simply cannot choose between them!:

  1. UKRAINE – Ruslana: Wild Dances (one of my allllllll time favourites)

2. LATVIA – Aminata: Love Injected (still gives me complete goosebumps)

3. TURKEY – Sertab Erener: Everyway that I can (again, one of my all time favourites and earliest Eurovision memories)

4. DENMARK – Emmelie De Forest: Only Teardrops

5. SWEDEN – Loreen: Euphoria (Come on, how can you not?)

6. SWEDISH HOSTS – Love love peace peace (I don’t think I’ve ever seen the internet break so much before)

7. And of course, last years winner UKRAINE: Jamala – 1944 (which still continues to make me speechless)


So with only 15 minutes to go, get ready for the annual taking over of the internet, complete chaos and prepare for Britain to get the heck booed out of them this year!
