Happy Top 5 Tuesday everyone!! This is week 4 of July’s “themed” topics where we will be making lists of books that start with corresponding letters. Each week, we will have 5 letters and you will list one book for each letter.
Same thing as last week, i’m using this opportunity to talk about some books that I don’t get to very often. There are so many books that I really enjoyed but I always mention the all time favourites first! So, if there was an all time favourite that started with a certain letter, I will choose something else just to give another book some time in the spotlight. This weeks letters are P-Q-R-S-T. Here we go 🙂
Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme where I explore different topics. If you are interested in participating I would love to have you! Here is a list of my Upcoming Topics in July – please remember to ping back a specific post of mine so I get a notification and I will add you to the participants list!
P – THE POPPY WAR by R.F. Kuang
This is an epic fantasy that surprised me so many times! Yes, there’s a bad ass female heroine, but she’s not your typical strong female lead. She is fearless and ferocious in ways that is rarely seen in fantasy. She was willing to put in the work and make the sacrifices needed to put herself at the top. And it was her hard work and sacrifices that made this book what it was. I can’t wait for the sequel!!
Q – THE QUEEN OF THE TEARLING by Erika Johansen
Though this wasn’t my favourite book out there, there were still quite a few interesting things about it. It was told in a future world where things like Harry Potter existed, but yet it was an old world without things like electricity and other modern comforts. I really enjoyed the character arc of the main character. She was so sheltered and all of a sudden was thrown into being a Queen. It was her passion for her people that really stuck in my mind!
R – RED SISTER by Mark Lawrence
Yet another fantasy with a strong female lead, but this one we have a young girl training with nuns in order to become killers. Anything where we have a school setting where they’re training to be assassins/killers/human weapons is a book I need in my life! This one we have politics, rank with the girls who were training, and really interesting classes! Such as poison…… when the teacher poisons literally everyone as part of their training. Oh, and did I forget to mention that all of this was happening on a mountain?
S – SKY IN THE DEEP by Adrienne Young
All I knew about this one before I picked it up was that the main character was a viking warrior…. sold! I went into it expecting non stop battle and bad-assery. I didn’t get that. BUT – what I did get was some outstanding character development mixed with a world that I found absolutely intriguing. I loved the characters, their families, their traditions, their ways of living – it’s still vivid in my mind to this day!!
T – TEETH IN THE MIST by Dawn Kurtagich
Now this one was creepy! We get three perspectives, all from different generations. They don’t know of each other but are all linked through this place in the world and the powers that are held there. There’s crazy hauntings, unexplained powers, and it was DARK!!! Parts of it really creeped me out and gave me goosebumps and that’s VERY hard to do! I think I really love this authors writing style!
