Top 5 series I want to start

Well, this is more the top 5 series to pop in my head when I thought of this topic.

Inheritance trilogy

I’ve yet to read anything by N.K. Jemisin but when I do, I’d like to start with The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, the first novel in her Inheritance trilogy, which seems to be of the fantasy genre. I want to start with her fantasy stuff before going sci-fi.

Top 5 books that made me laugh

Whenever I come across topics like this one, I realize that I don’t read many books that are humorous. I was surprised to be able to list 5 of them for this post.

Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

I read this just a few days ago. It’s the second novel in the Witches subseries of the Discworld fantasy series. It’s about three witches who plot to overthrow a tyrant, and it was loads of fun to read. Pratchett’s novel are humorous fantasy, so there’s often something to chuckle at.

Myron Uhlberg

Uhlberg wrote the children’s picture book The Sound of All Things, which is illustrated by Ted Papoulas. It’s set in New York City in the 1930s and is about a hearing boy visiting Coney Island with his deaf parents and describing the sound of things he hears to his father. It’s a wonderful read, and the illustrations are very realistic and beautiful.
