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. This week’s Top 5 Wednesday topic is all about those favorite problematic characters of ours. We all have those characters that we love even though we know we shouldn’t, so this week we’re celebrating those forbidden favorites. This list was kind of difficult to put together truthfully – I really tend to gravitate towards those perfect characters who do no evil, haha. Most of these characters aren’t characters that I actually like in terms of personality, but I really like reading about them because, in one way or another, they fascinate me. Enough of my rambling – let’s take a look at what (or shall I say who) I came up with!

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. This week’s topic is top 5 genre benders: books that defy genre or are hard to place in a certain category. I have to admit this topic was a lot harder than I thought it would be! I thought it’d be easy for me to come up with books that mix multiple genres, but it ended up being a lot more difficult to come up with five. Anyway, let’s take a look at my choices.

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. This week’s topic is top 5 books you’ve read because of blogging/booktube/etc. I decided to go with blogging because, obviously, that’s the platform I primarily use. There have been a LOT of books that I’ve read because I’ve seen so many other bloggers read and love them, so it was kind of difficult to narrow this down to five. Regardless, I did my best!

Each week has a different topic and you just post 5 books that fit that topic. This week’s topic is top 5 books to read without reading the synopsis: we all know that some synopsis writers spoil events that happen halfway through the book or have heard reviewers say “its best to go into this one blind.” Discuss those books.

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.
