Top 5 Saturday: Science Fiction Books

Welcome back to another Top 5 Saturday! Just in case you don’t know Top 5 Saturday is a weekly meme created by Mandy @ Devouring Books and it’s where we list the top five books (they can be books on your TBR, favourite books, books you loved/hated) based on the week’s topic. You can see the upcoming schedule at the end of my post πŸ™‚ This week’s topic is actually: science fiction books!

Oof, do I have a lot of these or do I really have a lot of these on my TBR? πŸ˜… I found a love for SF books when I first started reading Michael Crichton’s books back in 2010. I can’t even remember when I started reading more SFF but I do have quite a few that I’ve added to my TBR, especially in the last year+, thanks to all your wonderful recommendations. The five below are ones I already have on my physical/digital libraries and they’re just waiting to be read… (lol what’s new) I have to admit that I’m most excited to get to Becky Chambers’ books because I’ve heard endlessly good things about them!

Top 5 Saturday: Young Adult Detective Books

Welcome back to another Top 5 Saturday! Just in case you don’t know Top 5 Saturday is a weekly meme created by Mandy @ Devouring Books and it’s where we list the top five books (they can be books on your TBR, favourite books, books you loved/hated) based on the week’s topic. You can see the upcoming schedule at the end of my post πŸ™‚ This week’s topic is actually: detective books but I really wanted to do last week’s topic on Young Adult Books and I’m sad that I missed it. So I decided that I would combine the two topics this week to share: Young Adult Detective Books!

After making the decision to focus on YA Detective Books I realised that I wasn’t even sure I had (m)any on my TBR in the first place! Luckily, after a quick sweep through my Kindle shelves and my Goodreads TBR, I’ve managed to find a few. A lot of these are pretty hyped and popular titles although one is a much older release from 2014 but I only added it to my TBR last year. I’ve had the majority of these on my shelf for at least one year? So I’m hoping that I can get to at least a few at some point this year!

Top 5 Saturday: Recommended Reads

Welcome back to another Top 5 Saturday! Just in case you don’t know Top 5 Saturday is a weekly meme created by Mandy @ Devouring Books and it’s where we list the top five books (they can be books on your TBR, favourite books, books you loved/hated) based on the week’s topic. You can see the upcoming schedule at the end of my post πŸ™‚ This week’s topic is actually: recommended reads.

For today’s prompt on recommended reads, I’m going to look at five books on my TBR that have been recommended to me and I’m going to use the term “recommended” pretty loosely here because I consider the books that I see on blogs as recommendations, so there’s definitely no shortage of that! πŸ˜‚ I don’t think I’ll be focusing on any particular theme either so it’s just going to be the first ones that come to mind…

Top 5 Saturday: Underrated Books/Hidden Gems

Welcome back to another Top 5 Saturday! Just in case you don’t know Top 5 Saturday is a weekly meme created by Mandy @ Devouring Books and it’s where we list the top five books (they can be books on your TBR, favourite books, books you loved/hated) based on the week’s topic. You can see the upcoming schedule at the end of my post πŸ™‚ This week’s topic is actually: underrated books/hidden gems.

The prompt this week is pretty straightforward so I don’t really have much to say to introduce the topic. While it’d be easier to share underrated books that I’ve already read, I thought it’d be interesting to do an underrated books list for five on my TBR. I took to Goodreads to help me come up with a random list. These are books that I’ve heard good things about but I haven’t seen a lot of hype for (or at least not to my knowledge). I’m quite excited to read it Without further ado, let’s get to it!

#TopTenTuesday: Books with Colours in the Title

So, we’re back with another Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly meme hosted by Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is: books with colours in the title.

I thought this prompt would be super easy but it turns out I was very wrong πŸ˜… I wrote it while staring at the books on my shelf and I couldn’t see one read title that had a colour in it, and only one book title immediately came to mind for the prompt. Even digging deeper into my Goodreads read list didn’t give me as many results as I’d hoped to find! So to make it easier for myself, I’m going to split this list into read and to be read books with colours in the title because it turns out I’ve got a lot more on my ‘to-be-read’ list (*surprise surprise*) πŸ˜‚

READ

Words in Deep Blue – absolutely crushed my feels & one of my 2020 faves so far!
Spinning Silver – loved Novik’s magical writing and this unique retelling
Scarlet – the second book in one of my all favourite YA SFF fairytale retellings 😍
The Golden Compass – a dark and fantastical adventure full of magic and wonder that i really enjoyed!
Red Queen – this first book was a total winner for me, but sadly the sequels were not!


TO-BE-READ

Jade City – definitely finishing it this year!
Gods of Jade and Shadow – hoping to read it this year coz i’ve only heard amazing things!
