Books Top 5 Wednesday

Top 5 Wednesday: Non-Horror Books That Scared You

December 6, 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: Non-Horror Books That Scared You

1. A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J Maas

Sarah J Maas is known for her cliff hangers and explosive endings. Prior to ACOWAR we hadn't yet experienced how she wraps up a series...needless to say considering how she finished the other books in the ACOTAR series I was mildly terrified. I wasn't prepared in the slightest for the ending of this series but now having the news that there's a kind of follow up series I can't wait to dive back into this world once more. 

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

5. A Conjuring of Light by V.E Schwab

Similarly, V.E Schwab scares me. But in the best way. I know she isn't afraid to do awful things to her characters and as much as that makes for excellent reading it scares the hell out of me. She writes such three dimensional characters that I find myself being able to think about what they would do in a situation, you get attached to them. And its a baaaaaaaaaaaad idea. 

I have a review for A Gathering of Shadows here

5. The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas

The Hate U Give remains one of the most wonderful books I have read this year. But its terrifying. It's scary to think that we live in a world still concerned with the colour of a persons skin and not whats in their character. I cried so much reading this novel because it makes you think. It makes you question what kind of place we live in that this atrocity happens every day. And though it may not always present itself in the form of police brutality racial prejudice is here. Sadly, its everywhere. But there's always hope. Hope that if enough voices come together something will change. A voice is a powerful weapon, use it well.

4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Considering the current state of America and in all honesty the world a dystopian future is looking more and more probable. When I read it the Hunger Games scared me because to an extent I think it's plausible. We, as a people, have seen and committed countless acts of mindless violence. We only need to look at WW2 to see the kind of devastation that can be wrought on the whim of one charismatic leader...

5. Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

After reading Six of Crows* I was so attached to these murderous little babies. I just wanted them to be happy and live in their world of chaos with no problems... And then I read Crooked Kingdom...

What are some non-horror books that scared you? 

Thank-you for reading,
