Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:
–Talk about the science fiction and fantasy books you want to read ASAP!
In this list I’m only going to put books that I own, and not my Goodreads wish list/TBR.
Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson
This is a series I have heard excellent things about, and because of that I have wanted to read it for the longest time. I’m finally going to read it this month as one of my picks for the Tome Topple readathon. I’m so glad I’m finally picking it up.
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
This is another book that I have heard excellent things about. If I have to pick one book that I have heard people rave about the most, it has to be this. I haven’t read it yet because of its size and because of all the hype (I’m scared of the possible let down for me). It is a daunting book to pick up.
A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
Yet again, this is a series that I have heard great things about. Can you see a theme in my picks for this T5W? Haha. I got this book for Christmas, so I haven’t owned it for that long. I want to read it soon, now that the third book just came out. I like to wait until all or more than one of the books in a series is out before I start it.
Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
I really enjoy reading Cassandra Clare’s books set in the Shadowhunter universe. I need to get to this soon, because book 2 is right around the corner.
Here are some other SFF books that are high on my TBR:
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers
The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1) by N.K. Jemisin
Sleeping Giants (Themis Files #1) by Sylvain Neuvel
Replica (Replica #1) by Lauren Oliver
Odinsbarn (Ravneringene #1) by Siri Pettersen
The Black Prism (Lightbringer #1) by Brent Weeks
