September 10, 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: Top SFF ( Science Fiction/Fantasy) Books on Your TBR

1. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

The Name of the Wind is one of the quintessential SFF novels and I'm ashamed to say I still haven't read it. I am aiming to have this read by 2018.

I fully intend to read this (hopefully soon) and I've heard nothing but amazing things about it and how easy it is to read. I think it's the length of the book that's being steering me away from it honestly and the fact it's another series where we're waiting on a book (and have been waiting a good long while.

2. A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

If you have been anywhere near my blog or any of my social media you will have seen me profess my love for The Bone Season series by Samantha Shannon which is steeped in Clairvoyance. When I read the blurb of A Promise of Fire I knew it was for me.

Our main character Cat is a soothsayer, albeit a reluctant one, determined to escape her homicidal mothers clutches. I want to read this ASAP.

3. Wintersong by S Jae Jones

I have finally, after much badgering from my friends, watched the Labyrinth. A film this book has been compared to very often. I've also heard people liken this to Christina Rosetti's Goblin Market which is one of my favourite poems. Winterisong sounds like the perfect dark and twisted fairytale, like something straight out of the Grimm Brother's notebooks.

3. Strange The Dreamer By Laini Taylor

I have yet to read anything by Laini Taylor, yes I know, I heard the gasps of horror. However, I intend to finish 2017 having read Strange the Dreamer and hopefully the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy. I'd love to tell you a little bit about Strange the Dreamer but in all honesty I can't explain it.

5. American Gods by Neil Gaiman

I read and loved Ocean at the End of the Lane and so so many people have recommended American Gods to me. It sounds like something I'd love with the Elements of mythology but I just haven't picked it up yet! But I will do! Soon...
