Top Ten Tuesday | Hidden Gem Books in Sci-fi & Fantasy

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Ten Hidden Gem Books in X Genre: Pick a genre and share with us some books that have gone under the radar in that genre!

As you can see from the title, I chose to do both sci-fi and fantasy. The main reason why is because I couldn’t find enough books for just one genre. I decided to do both because they are great genres on their own but also because I found a handful of books that have elements from both genres. With the exception of two books, I picked these up when I first started getting into reading so I may not feel the same way about them if I were to read them now but at the time, I loved them and definitely consider them to be hidden gems! So, without further ado, let’s see which books I chose!

Top Ten Tuesday | Required Reading For All Fantasy Fans

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is: Back To School Freebie – anything “back to school” related like 10 favorite books I read in school, books I think should be required reading, Required Reading For All Fantasy Fans, required reading for every college freshman, Books to Pair With Classics or Books To Complement A History Lesson, books that would be on my classroom shelf if I were a teacher, etc.

I decided to go with required reading for all fantasy fans because I feel like I’m well versed on the genre and I can definitely give some great and totally original (not really lol) recommendations. I know that there are numerous fantasy books that I still need to read so I have an idea. I’ll be splitting this topic into two parts. Part 1 will be my required reading for you guys and part 2 will be required reading for me (I guess they’re required readings for you too but just go with it pls)! So, without further ado, let’s get started with the books!

Top 5 Wednesday | Characters’ Fitness Routines I Want

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Lainey and Samantha. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and you list your top 5 books related to the particular topic. This weeks topic is: Characters’ Fitness Routines You Want – This can be interpreted a bunch of different ways! Fitness comes in many different packages. This can be about characters who are super fast, strong, agile, good at dancing, good at climbing, athletes, or foodies! Whatever it means to you. This is inspired by those routines you see in magazines for actors, but with more of an open mind and less body shaming 🙂

ARC Review | Warcross by Marie Lu

“When you refuse to ask for help, it tells others that they also shouldn’t ask for help from you. That you look down on them for needing your help. That you like feeling superior to them. It’s an insult.” {ARC, p. 292}

ARC Review | Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

“She was blood and snow, and so she would be like the snow, like the pine needles, like the winter wind: sharp and cold and biting. Snow didn’t break or shatter, and neither would she.”
