Top 5 LGBTQIAP Books I’ve Read

Top 5 Wednesday blog header 4-19-17

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five LGBTQ+ books we’ve read. These can be books that feature LGBTQIAP characters or that are written by LGBTQIAP authors. Honestly, a lot of the books that I’ve read with LGBTQIAP characters are books that I read years ago, so I don’t remember a lot about them. So I’m going to stick to books I’ve read more recently.

Top 5 SFF Books On My TBR

Top 5 Wednesday SFF books on my TBR

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five SFF books on your TBR. For those of you who don’t know, SFF stands for science-fiction/fantasy. Basically, what sci-fi and fantasy books are on your TBR that you want to read ASAP? I could come up with soooo many books for this topic since sci-fi is one of my favorite genres (as is fantasy, to a lesser degree). Let’s see if I can keep it at 5. 😉

As a bit of a side note, I decided not to include books that I have on my April TBR since I’ve already talked about those pretty recently on my blog and don’t want to make my posts seem repetitive. So the books I’m including in today’s post will be ones that I likely won’t get to this month, but that I really want to try to read soon.

Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads. This week’s topic is top five favorite polarizing books. This was actually a bit hard for me because, in order to be really polarizing, I feel like books have to be pretty popular. And I fail miserably at reading super popular books. But I managed to come up with five so without further ado, here we go!

Top 5 Books I Want to Finally Read in 2017

top 5 wednesday books i want to read in 2017 12/7/16

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about the group or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. All links will take you to Goodreads.

This week’s topic focuses on books that you’ve been meaning to read, didn’t get around to, but want to read in 2017. This, like yesterday’s Top Ten Tuesday post, could have ended up with about 50 items included on the list. Narrowing it down to 5 is going to be hard, but I’ll do my best. Just be aware this is by no means an exhaustive list 😉

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

23299512

This is one of those books that I kept talking about and was so excited for. I got it from OwlCrate, swore that I was going to read it very soon, and then just… didn’t. I really do want to read this one, especially since I’ve heard a lot of great things about it. Hopefully, I can do that before the sequel comes out. 🙂

The Star-Touched Queen by Roshani Chokshi

I actually know why I’ve put off reading this one: I originally heard nothing but fantastic things about it so I got excited and bought it. Then almost immediately after buying it, I started seeing a lot more mixed reviews, mostly saying that it has beautiful writing but the story itself is kind of boring and that put me off reading it. But I know that a lot of people have still loved this book and after meeting (and falling a little in love with) Roshani back in September, I know I want to read this.

Lost in Love by Susane Colasanti

26074114

I have no idea why I haven’t read this yet. I read City Love (which I loved) a month or two before Lost in Love was released specifically so that I could read this as soon as it came out in May. It’s December and I still haven’t read it. I swear I’m going to read this in 2017.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

I’ve had my eye on this ever since I first heard about it years ago. I bought it a year or two ago and, like the others on this list, I’ve yet to read it. I know this is one of those series that nearly everyone in the book blogging community has read and loved so hopefully I’ll get to it soon.

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

I bought this last year after Christmas, I think. I had seen it around on Tumblr and really wanted to read it. I don’t know much else to say about it besides that I still really want to read it haha

What books are you hoping to finally get around to in 2017?

Top 5 Books I Want to Re-read

top 5 wednesday books i want to re-read

Top 5 Wednesday is currently being hosted by Sam at ThoughtsOnTomes. If you want to learn more about or are considering joining in, check out the Goodreads group. Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic.

This week’s theme is: books you want to re-read. I could easily come up with a lot more than 5, but I (somehow) managed to keep it only to 5. (I deserve an award, to be honest.)

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

2767052

I first read this a couple of months before the first movie was released, so I think it was at the end of 2011 that I read these. 5 years later, these books are even more relevant and I desperately want to re-read them. Plus, I’d love to see what I pick up on the second time around that I missed the first time I read them.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

I’m sure a lot of you know how much I love dystopian books. This series is what kickstarted that for me. I read the first book around 7th grade and was just so addicted to the series. I can’t remember if I ever actually finished the series or not, oddly enough. Regardless, I’d love to revisit the books that made me fall in love with one of my favorite genres.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I’m sure a lot of you also know that I love WWII historical fiction. I had to read during my freshman or sophomore year of high school. I liked it, but as a general rule, I really didn’t enjoy books that I had to read for school, so I’m curious whether or not I would enjoy it more if I read it just for my own personal enjoyment.

The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger

5107

This is another one I had to read for school, but I have nothing but good memories of this book. I know this is a book that divides people – you either love or hate this book. I just really, really loved this book and would love to re-read it.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne

boyne-the-boy-in-the-striped-pajamas

I want to re-read this for a couple of reasons. As I already mentioned, I really love WWII historical fiction and I’ve been getting back into these types of books recently after awhile of not really reading them. This is actually one of the very first WWII books I read and I absolutely loved it at the time. It was the first book that ever made me cry. 😉 But recently I’ve been wondering if it’s a bit sympathetic to Nazis – based on what I recall, I feel like it might try too much to humanize them. So I want to go back and re-read it with a more critical eye and see whether or not it’s a book I can/should continue to love, support, and recommend.
