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: Pick Your OwnFavourite Fictional Cities

1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas


I love how this place was described throughout the entire series. I always imagined it with lush green forests and full of magic. I wish I could holiday there. It was always a place that made me think of hope reading this series, it was a symbol. One that most people knew of and wistfully thought of before the King of Adarlan appeared.

I have a review for Tower of Dawn here.

2. Six of Crows* by Leigh Bardugo


The complete antithesis of Terrasen. I feel like I'd fit in well in Ketterdamn, all dark clothes and brooding. I admit it. I brood a lot. That and I'd love to explore all the back alleys of it, find the best places to spy on people. Maybe work for the Crows. Who knows.

I have a review for Six of Crows* here.

I have a review for Crooked Kingdom here.

5. Caraval by Stephanie Garber


This is just phenomenal. Caraval isn't just a a setting, it's a character. There's a pulse to it, a life. And oh my god the way it was described. It makes you wish it was real and that you could be a participant. It's like entering another world.

I have a review for Caraval here.

2. A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E Schwab

Red London.

Well, all London's really. Between the different ones Victoria created a phenomenal world but by far my favourite of all is Red London. Not just because red is my favourite colour but because of how beautiful it sounds. Particularly, in the tournament. I love how the floating arena sounded. Like utter magic, which I wish I could experience.

I have a review for A Gathering of Shadows here.

I have a review for A Conjuring of Light here.

5. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas


Well duh.

I have a review for A Court of Wings and Ruin here.

    I would choose London Below of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. It’a whole different fantastical world below the London we know.
