Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme, GoodReads group here with all the topics + discussion!
This week’s topic is: Spring Reads
Spring/Summer is when a lot of people read contemporary books but I’m not the biggest contemporary fan, so my list is going to be *mostly* fantasy… sorry not sorry.
1) The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater
I feel like these books just scream spring, the first book in set in April so perfect timing! The first books that came to mind when I was thinking about what to include in this list were these. I think these books are perfect to binge in spring!
2) Simon Vs the Homosapien Agenda
The only contemporary on this list. Mainly because this book has actually stuck with me, most contemporaries are cute at the time for me but I find them unmemorable. I find myself still thinking about this book for ages after I read it, it’s almost been 2 years now. I’d love to reread it – I might do this spring!
3) Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson
Am I forever recommending Brandon Sanderson? Yes. Will I ever stop? No.
I consider Warbreaker to be my favourite book. It brings me so much joy, the story has stuck with me and I loved it even rereading it. It’s just a great book. It’s fantasy with romance, friendships, loads of plot twists (of course) & a talking sword. It’s also a standalone, so no commitment to a series!
4) Spellslinger by Sebastien De Castell
This is such a fun series, I think it’s perfect for any time of year but I think it would be a great spring read. It’s funny and lighthearted, it’s such a fun fantasy – not dark or stressful to read like some are.
5) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
Thought I would include a classic. The only classic I can honestly say I love! Jane Eyre is one of my favourite books of all time, I just love Jane as a character and her story.
I think this would be a lovely spring read. I always imagine her time at Thornfield and with Rochester in the spring/summer for some reason…
