Books Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Angsty Romances

September 9, 2017

What is Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes on YouTube. Here is the link for the Goodreads group where you can find the list of topics and such. 

This weeks topic is: Favourite Angsty Romances

4. A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J Maas

Feyre and Rhysand.

Need I say more? 

Sarah J Maas is the unofficial Queen of both angsty and steamy romances. Her books are like pringles, one is never enough. 

The Goodreads page can be found here.

2. Truthwitch by Susan Dennard

The Witchlands series in general is one of my absolute favourites for so many reasons. The writing, the characters, the plot and of course, the romances. They are by no means the main focus of the series, they're the cherry on top of the cake instead. usually, this is the sort of book I prefer. When the relationships enhance the plot rather than consume it. In Truthwitch we see the banter between Safi and Merik flow quicker than my morning coffee. I adore them. 

I have a review for Windwitch here

The Goodreads pages can be found here and here.

5.Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini

This is one of my favourite series (though I still need to finish the last book) and sadly I've never seen it get any press in the book community, positive or otherwise. The angst in this novel is well and truly there. Lily is transported to a historical version of her town in which she meets an evil version of herself. This doppelgänger broke the heart of a character named Rowan. Safe to say when Rowan and Lily run into each other it wasn't smooth sailing. 

This romance definitely didn't appear for a while...

The Goodreads pages can be found here, here and here.

1. Glass House by Rachel Caine

 This is a series that was incredibly popular during the post-Twilight craze. I started reading these aged fourteen and at  twenty I continue to. They're addictive. I actually met Rachel Caine at a signing in Liverpool and she was so lovely. The Morganville Vampire series is full of angst like you'd expect a vampire novel to be but it was the characters I fell in love with. Claire, Shane, Michael and Eve. They're all so different but they work together so well and in there respective pairings they're so sweet but so troubled. 

I want to reread this series soon but its such a commitment...

The Goodreads page can be found here.

2. The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon

This series has consistently received a lot of praise across the book community, on Youtube, Instagram and Blogs nearly everyone has agreed its fantastic. And I agree, It's incredible and the third novel came out earlier this year. A blend of Science Fiction and Dystopia we meet Paige, a clairvoyant living in a futuristic version of London. A London that has outlawed Clairvoyance. In a roundabout series of events Paige ends up living under the protection of Warden. A brooding Rephaim who, against his better judgement, wants to protect Paige (though some of his methods aren't ideal.

What books/films/shows/games have you favourite angsty romances in? 

Thank-you for reading,
