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: Favorites You'd Like to Revisit
1. Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas
If only I could relive this series just once more. To rediscover and watch the world expand, the plot thicken and my favourite characters develop. I'm jealous of the people just discovering the Throne of Glass world, I only have on book left to go now! I both can't wait and don't want this series to end. Ever.
Similarly, to Sarah J Maas, Susan's books have an unbelievably expansive world. One I wish I was able to explore for the first time again. It's magic system is so unbelievably vast and complex that I often wondered how Susan kept it all straight in her mind! I can't wait to see where this series goes too. I miss these characters so much.
Of course this was going to make the list. Oh to rediscover the series, the fandom, everything. I adore this series. It's become my auto answer whenever anyone asks what my favourite book is. I never used to have one. Until this series.
The common factor between all these books is the worlds. ADSOM is no different. A few days ago I read the transcript of VE Schwab's lecture at Pembroke college Oxford and had to hold back tears. Not because it was sad, but because I felt so validated. The amount of times I wish I'd heard this years ago. ADSOM is a book filled with people on the outside looking in, and as a reader looking in I adored it. I think I'm going to have to read them again soon.
This series epitomised my teenage years. I remember devouring these books, they made me so happy. I loved seeing a bit of my home town in a book, places I knew. It always makes a book that much more real. Despite the fact that theres witches and all that in this of course. One day, possibly as I finish my degree I think I'll revisit these.
