Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Reads of 2018

Top 5 Wednesday: Most Disappointing Reads of 2018

It’s been AAAAAAGES since I last did a Top 5 Wednesday. But here I am and here we go! This is my Top 5 Most Disappointing Reads of 2018. The Power by Naomi Alderman (review) A case of hype-disappointment. I had heard amazing things about this book. Everyone seemed to be raving about it. It didn’t manage to convince me. I think I wanted more than what I got. People usually say this is a super feminist book. I didn’t…

Top 5 Wednesday: Books I'm Thankful For

Honestly, I’m thankful for all the books I’ve read so far. Simply for the opportunity, for being able to read them at all. I’m giving you five groups instead of books, because in this case choosing really is losing. YA In General Seriously, there are so many great YA books out in the world. I only had Harry Potter and Twilight when I hit that age. So I’m thankful for all the amazing YA writers, creating books that close the…

Top 5 Wednesday: Problematic Faves

Characters you don’t want to love, but you can’t help liking. This is going to turn into a round of who’s your favorite morally gray character… because you know, hero’s are boring. They just want to do the right thing. It’s the inbetweeners I want to read about. They always end up being the compelling ones. Let’s go! Draco Malfoy He’s a bully, I know, but I can’t help but like him. I always wanted to know more, always wanted…

Top 5 Wednesday: Books Featuring Witches

Top 5 Wednesday: Books Featuring Witches

I apparently haven’t read a lot of witchy books. So I split this challenge into “Read” and “To be read”. First of, books I read: 1. Uprooted by Naomi Novik Loved this book and its earth magic. It has lots of atmosphere and by the end I wished I could just keep reading forever. 2. Outlander – Diana Gabaldon You might not think of Outlander when it comes to witches but Geillis Duncan was actually one of my favourite characters….

Top 5 Wednesday: Books That Aren't Set In/Inspired By The Western World

Talk about books that are set outside of the Western World (so outside of North America and Western Europe) or if they are SFF, books that aren’t inspired by those places (so no medieval setting fantasy!) I’m ashamed to say that I have read almost no books that fit this description. So I’m filling my list with 5 books I have on my shelf and want to read in the near future. You can tell me which one I should…
