Top 5 Wednesday | Books I’ve Read Because of BookTube

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: Books You’ve Read Because of Booktube/Blogging/etc. – Discuss the books you’ve picked up because you’ve heard of them in the online book community or platform you use.

Before I got more involved in the online book community, I got ALL of my book recommendations from BookTube. Here are just a few that left a strong impression on me, good and bad. You can guess which ones were a winner and which ones failed to impress me haha!

Top 5 Wednesday | Books From Before I Joined Twitter

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: Books from Before You Joined ________ – These are some of your favorite books from before you joined the online book community, whether that be booktube, goodreads, blogs, bookstagram, twitter, tumblr, etc.

I joined the online book community (via twitter) on October of last year and it was the best decision of my life. Not only have I met soooo many amazing people but I’ve also gotten a lot of book recommendations. I mean, what more could a person ask for?! I may have been late to the book community party but that didn’t stop me from reading some pretty fantastic books before joining!

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 🙂

Top 5 Wednesday | Book Covers I’d Live In

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: Book Covers I’d Live In – We all love a good cover but what are some covers you’d like to be transported into?

This was like choosing my favorite covers but worse because I practically want to live in every cover. The only good thing is that there are so many worlds that I don’t want anything to do with so a great number of covers were eliminated. I’m pretty happy with my choices, so without further ado, let’s jump right in!

Top 5 Wednesday | Series That Got Better

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: Series That Got Better — We’ve talked about series that went downhill with each book, but talk about series that are worth pushing through the first (or first few…) books to get to the good stuff!

For the most part, series tend to get better with every book in my opinion. Of course there are exceptions to this but I can’t think of many. Without further ado, let’s get started!

Top 5 Wednesday | Books That Aren’t Set In/Inspired By The Western World

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: Books That Aren’t Set In/Inspired By The Western World – I know this is a long title, but I couldn’t figure out how else to word it and still get the point across. Talk about books that are set outside of the Western World (so outside of North America and Western Europe) or if they are SFF, books that aren’t inspired by those places (so no medieval setting fantasy!)

This topic seems easy enough, right? WRONG. While I was looking at my shelf to see which books fit the topic, I realized that I’ve only read THREE books that weren’t set in the Western World. Now, I could have read more and am just forgetting but that’s just as bad in my opinion. Soooo, I’ve decided to mention 5 books that are on my TBR!
