Time for Top 5 Wednesday! I missed last week’s due to exams, but I survived and am back! This week’s theme is Top 5 Science Fiction TBR (to-be read) in honour of Booktube’s SFF Awards. This weekly meme is hosetd by Sam and Lainey over at the Goodreads group here.
Right, let’s get started!
5. The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams
This weird SciFi just sounds so much fun, and I’ve been wanting to read it for a long time. I’ll let fate decide on when to start it however, and wait ’till I stumble over a copy (and when I have money). Or I might listen to the audio book?
4. Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
I’ve only heard praise for this novel and the whole synopsis sounds amazing and original. I just can’t wait to get my hands on a copy to read. Now when I’m thinking about it, it’ll probably take all my self-control not to go online and use up my money…
3. The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison
This one is actually sitting on my shelf (and tempting me). This book sounds great and I’ve also only heard good things about it. My hope is to start reading it sometime this month, but it’s quite uncertain seeing how much school work I have to do …
2. The Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett
I really, REALLY want to start reading the Discworld series. It just sounds just like my type of “feel-good” books (weird and funny in every aspect). Also, I LOVE world-building and a world on top of a giant turtle? Hell yeah. The first book is actually on its way right now! I have to maintain every self-control not to neglect my school work by starting to read it as soon as it arrives.
1. Arcanum Unbounded by Brandon Sanderson
Oh Sanderson, what would a weekly meme or tag post on this blog be without you? I’ve been savoring this book since I got it on its release day, in order to read it before Oathbringer comes out in November.
