The Top 5 Wednesday topic for this week is ‘top SFF books on your TBR’. This entails finding 5 science fiction and fantasy books that you would like to read. I don’t read fantasy or science fiction very often, so I am sure you have probably heard of all of these books.
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I really enjoyed the film Divergent. It was a surprisingly captivating film and I wouldn’t mind reading the books. Although, the reason I didn’t is because I stupidly read everything that happens on Wikipedia and wasn’t impressed with how it ends. Maybe it would be fun just to read the first book, though!
2. Replica by Lauren Oliver
I am really intrigued by the synopsis of this book. A lot of BookTubers spoke about it last year, which really made me want to read it. I have read If I Fall by the same author, and I liked it, so maybe I will like this one too!
3. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
This is another book that I would like to read because I enjoyed the movie. Like many science fiction/dystopian books, it has a fascinating premise that I would like to learn more about it by reading the book.
4. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
Yes, I have never read City of Bones. A few years ago in high school I went on an excursion with my book club and Cassandra Clare was one of the speakers. I don’t remember what she spoke about, but I remember one of the girls was a fan of her books and asked her a question. This seems like it is many people’s favourite book series, and I have always wanted to read it to find out why.
5. 1984 by George Orwell
I am not really sure what this book is about, but I hear about it quite often in some of my classes. As it is a fairly popular classic, I would love to read this someday. It may also be interesting to read because 1984 has obviously already happened.
- What do you think of these books?
- Out of these, which one should I read first?
