Top 5 Wednesday! – Hidden Gems in Your Favorite Genre

  • What are some of your favorite books in your favorite genre that don’t get a lot of hype?

-Goodreads Top 5 Wednesday group is run by Sam of Thoughts of Tomes, and can be found here!

My favourite genre is definitely fantasy. I don’t care what subgenre, it’s all good to me. It’s quite hard to see what’s really ‘hidden’ though because most of my favourites are actually well known HOWEVER I have found some not many people talk about nowadays:

I read this in 2017 I believe? It was the first book I read of the year. I know it came out in 2012 so I might have missed the hype train but I still love it. Penryn is a likeable heroine without all the dramatics, and it’s a really good journey. Angels in a different light, good prose, she’s capable. I gave this 5*.

Top 5 Wednesday – Forgettable Books

Whether you loved or hated them at the time, these are books that you just don’t really remember…

Here’s the thing, I’m pretty good at remembering books, or at least aspects of books. HOWEVER. I can’t remember what I read 10 days ago. I’m that sort of a person.

So I had to look back at my Goodreads list for this.

Oh my God I hated this but I can’t remember anything about the plot, mainly because I DNF’d it when I was about 15.

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Didn’t Get to In 2017

These are books you didn’t end up getting to in 2017, but really want to prioritize in 2018. 

This list could go on for days, but Top 5 Wednesday is 5 for a reason, so I’ve whittled it down.

33958230

I got this with a Fairyloot box, and I’ve heard RAVE reviews about it. I can’t wait to delve into this. Villain origin stories is everything I love.

30237061

I’m hype for Amanda Foody’s next book, and I read the first few pages of this but it was too heavy (hardback) for me to hold at the time. But again, rave reviews and it has the book cover I’m DYING for and yes. Love love!

865293

Damn. I got about 50 pages into this and I loved it but the language required so much concentration of me when I was going to sleep that I had to put it down. It seems really interesting but one of those I need to get the rhythm of.

19161852

This has won so many award and – you guessed it – I’ve started reading it but it won awards for a REASON and that is because it’s complex and fascinating, world-spanning, history-laden and not fit for me after medication before I go to sleep.

Witches – check. Being made into a TV series – check. Need to read it – check.

Top 5 Wednesday – Books Of 2017

— Goodreads Top 5 Wednesday group is run by Sam of Thoughts of Tomes, and can be found here!

Well, 2017 isn’t finished quite yet, and staring at the presents beneath the tree I can tell there’s some books waiting for me to devour before the clock strikes midnight on 2017. BUT there are some clear favourites I’ll mention before I do my 2017 round up in January.

Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo

 

I’m still reading this but it’s just… incredible. I grew up on fairy tales and myths, folklore and Grimms stories and this has ignited that kid in me once again. I adore it.

Our Dark Duet by V.E Schwab

 

Everyone knows I’m trash for Schwab and Bardugo, so this won’t be a surprise either. But this was a heartbreaking ending to a wonderful duology which spoke to me on a dark, twisty level.

Geekerella by Ashley Poston

 

I don’t dig contemporary often, but this was an incredibly geeky, nerdy, wonderful book that I couldn’t get enough of. It also introduced me to Ashley, whose Heart of Iron book is on my top list of NEEEEEED for 2018.

The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

 

This is a weird series simply because I keep thinking I’ve always loved it, but lo, it was only 2017 that I started reading this. I adored it. I know many people are like “what?” about the series as a whole but it was truly something I adored. The books got better and I got deeper into the characters. Just loved it.

I admit it. I was trash for this book. I don’t know why, but – it was amazing. I loved it. It was like book crack, I couldn’t put it down. Will I get a tattoo of it? No. But it was amazing so I have to put it on this list.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And no list, I know I’ve done 5, but NO LIST can go without this gem
