Happy Saturday, bibliophiles!
Time for another Top 5 Saturday! This was originally started by Devouring Books, and it sounded like such a fun post to take part in. Today’s topic is recommended reads; I suppose there’s several different ways that you could interpret this prompt, so I’ll pick some books that friends and fellow bloggers have recommended to me–some on my TBR, some that I’ve already read.
UPCOMING SCHEDULE FOR AUGUST:
8/8/20—Underrated Books/Hidden Gems
- Share your top 5 books of the current topic– these can be books that you want to read, have read and loved, have read and hated, you can do it any way you want.
- Tag the original post
- Tag 5 people
Let’s begin, shall we?
TOP 5 SATURDAY (8/15/20)–RECOMMENDED READS
The War of the Worlds, H.G. Wells
OHHOHO, OLD SCI-FI VIBES…
A friend of mine (and a fellow fan of Bowie and old sci-fi) loves this one, and I’m so excited to read it!
The War that Saved My Life, Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
Two books with “war” in the titles in a row? Oops…
Anyway, I’ve had a few friends recommend this one to me over the years, but Sarah @ The Inside Cover ultimately convinced me to put it on my TBR. (And if you aren’t following her blog, I highly recommend doing so!)
This one came highly recommended from one of my closest friends, and as always, her judgment was on point–I loved this one! I really need to get around to reading the rest of the series…
Far Sector–N.K. Jemisin and Jamal Campbell
My whole family consists of huge comic book fans, and that usually means that single issues circulate between us before coming to rest in bags and boards. My brother lent this one to me, after showing me a few panels and saying that they “looked like your Aurora Rising books.”
Needless to say:
- My brother is an absolutely fantastic person in every sense of the word
- I LOVED this comic
Ashes on the Waves, Mary Lindsey
This one came recommended from the former president of my school’s book club. Definitely an interesting retelling!
I TAG ANYONE WHO WANTS TO PARTICIPATE!
[cries] THE NOSTALGIA
That’s it for this week’s Top 5 Saturday! Have a wonderful rest of your day, and take care of yourselves!
