Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Shanah, the Bionic Book Worm.
I’m doubling up on topics this week since I missed posting last week.
I’ll start with last week’s topic:
Top 5 books on my current TBR
The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan
Apparently it’s being made into a TV show by Amazon and because I’m listening to two podcasts that focus only on this series, I’ve decided to reread the first five and try again to complete the series. I’m slowly making my way through Eye of the World, but so far it has my interest.
The Fall by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
It’s the second novel in the Strain horror trilogy. I enjoyed the first book and would like to continue and complete the trilogy. I was supposed to read this for Halloween, but life got busy.
Tales From a Tall Forest by Shaun Micallef, illus. by Jonathan Bentley
An illustrated middle-grade fantasy book of stories inspired by fairytales, I think. I haven’t started it yet.
The Colors of History: How Colors Shaped the World by Clive Gifford, illus. by Marc-Etienne Peintre
A children’s picture book about colors. I thought it’d be great to read this since I read The Secret Lives of Color by Kassia St. Clair, a nonfiction book about colors, in the summer.
The Monster of Elendhaven by Jennifer Giesbrecht
I’m guessing this is a fantasy, horror novella. I’m curious about it due to the reviews I’ve read although not everyone loved it.
This week’s topic:
Top 5 authors I NEED to read
Yea, I can’t believe I haven’t read her stuff yet either.
I think I’ll like her work. I now have both Song of Achilles and Circe. I need to get to them.
Another author whose work I think I’ll easily fall for.
P. Djèlí Clark
I really want to read The Black God’s Drums.
I NEED to see what the hype’s about.
