I don’t read a lot of SFF, which means I have SO MANY that I still have to pick up. I could have written a top 100 list for this topic, and I still wouldn’t have touched upon most of them!
These are the five SFF novels that I really hope I can read this year, because I’m so excited about them and don’t know why I keep messing around.
5) ‘Falling Kingdoms’
by Morgan Rhodes
I haven’t read ‘Falling Kingdoms’ because it’s the first book in a six-book series, and we only have the first two in the library. That means if I love them both I’m going to need to buy books three through five (book six isn’t being released until later in the year) and I don’t have the money to do that.
4) The Graceling trilogy by Kirstin Cashore
I have no excuse for putting off the Graceling series. It sounds like something I’ll really enjoy, and I am planning on reading it in the next couple of months… But I’ve also been saying that for what feels like years, so don’t get your hopes up.
3) ‘Strange the Dreamer’ by Laini Taylor
I was supposed to read ‘Strange the Dreamer’ last month, but I didn’t get time, so I am determined that I will get it done in April. I don’t know why I keep putting this one off, but I can’t bring myself to pick it up!
2) ‘A Game of Thrones’ by George R.R. Martin
The size of this one intimidates me, but because I’m already so familiar with most of the characters it should be a breeze. If I haven’t read this before I go to university, it’s going to be the only book I take with me: that way I’ll be forced to finally give it a go.
1) ‘Wintersong’ by S. Jae-Jones
This is one of the most hyped releases of this year, and despite not knowing much about the story of the Goblin King I am excited to learn more about it through this retelling.
I hope you enjoyed this Top Five Wednesday! Out of these books, which one do you think I should read next?
