Top 5 Wednesday: SFF on Your TBR

Sam over at ThoughtsOnTomes is the host of Top 5 Wednesday. She’s a little busy this month, you know with graduate school and all, so we are able to choose our topics this month. Like I said last week, there are so many topics I want to write about! This topic was from April 5th, 2017.

The topic for this weeks Top 5 Wednesday?

Top 5 Science Fiction & Fantasy on Your TBR

This topic was made for me! Considering I really only ever read science fiction and fantasy. How will I ever narrow it down to 5?!


1. If you haven’t caught on, I have been addicted to enjoying the Red Queen series. So I had to put this one first. War Storm came out yesterday (May 15th) and I’m only a couple pages into it but I cannot wait to see how it ends!


2. Ok, I might have a slight obsession with books with crowns on the cover, but can you blame me?! How cool is the cover of this book? I have heard nothing but good things about this book and I cannot wait to read it! Plus its a trilogy… 😀


3. No judging allowed ok? I actually have never read the Lord of the Rings books (GASP! – Oh look now I’m judging myself). I read the Hobbit and I’ve seen all the movies. But I’ve been wanting to read these books for a while now. What’s more Science Fiction/Fantasy than Lord of the Rings?! (Really I want to know. My TBR is always welcoming more books…)


4. This book sounds so good and I keep hearing about it so naturally it has been on my radar. I’ll probably end up reading this series after I’m done with War Storm. Faries, Kingdoms, Romance, a curse… What doesn’t this book have? 


5. I know, I know… Crowns again. I can’t help it ok?! This book has some serious sibling rivalry going on and I can’t wait to read about it!

Whelp, I guess those are my top 5 (at least my top 5 in the first 2 pages of my TBR list – oops). What about you? Have you read any of the books on my list that you would recommend? Is there a book I should have on my list but don’t? Is there a SFF book on your TBR that you’ve been dying to read?

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one! It’s a series I’ve been meaning to read but I’m so worried I won’t love it. Crowns seem to make the perfect book covers.

  1. I’ve read The Lord of the Rings and I really liked it, but actually I enjoyed reading Hobbit much more! I used to only read fantasy – huge fan of Neil Gaiman – maybe I’ll get back to it!

    1. I love The Hobbit! Fantasy is so easy to get sucked into. It’s completely different than everything going on around you. I think that’s why I enjoy reading it so much.

  2. I judged myself sooo hard about having not read LOTR, too. I’m (finally!) reading it now, and I started Two Towers today. It’s such a daunting read, though, isn’t it? I also seem to have a thing for crowns on covers because I just realized I have quite a few on my tbr/wishlist haha.I love this topic choice 🙂

    1. I’m glad I’m not the only one! It’s such an iconic series I feel like I have to like it. I haven’t read a single bad book with a crown on the cover lol. It’s a sign.
