I haven't done Top Five Wednesday in a coooool minute. Nor have I been active on this website either-save that discussion for another day. Computer issues aside, I'm finally back to doing T5W and if you didn't know T5W was created by gingerreadslainey and every Wednesday there's a topic in which we choose our top 5 to it. If you want to join, check out the discussion page!
This T5W's discussion is futuristic books. I actually had a hard time choosing five books because most futuristic books are dystopian or scifi and I don't gravitate towards that genre. I was able to come up with four books I have read and one I really want to start soon. That counts right?
5) Hunger Games (and Catching Fire) by Suzanne Collins
If we can just pretend that Mockingjay never happened, these two books were actually really good. Really good. The Hunger Games itself is such a different book and such a unique series with so much action that was written so well. These two were so gripping that I really could not put them down. These two were so good but then the movies and the last book happened. Even then, the hype that surrounds this series is understandable.
4) Legend (and Prodigy) by Marie Lu
I've talked about Legend before (and will talk about Prodigy soon) so I won't say much but omgg this is one of my favorite dystopian series of all time-despite me knowing the ending of the series. I don't even care. The way Marie Lu built the world and the actual plot of this series is so good. And that damn plot twist. This series gives me the feels.
3) Lunar Chronicles Series by Marissa Meyer
So Cinder is my favorite book out of the three that are out and she is my favorite character, but even with that, these books are great. The adventure is great, the characters are adorable. I've reread Cinder twice already and it gets better with each read.
2) Blood Of Eden series by Julie Kagawa
The only vampire book I like. 'Nuff said. Granted I read this book when it first came out and I plan on rereading it this month because I haven't read the last book yet.
1) The Mad Scientist's Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke
This is the book I have not read yet but I plan on reading it this month. I kind of have been on a Cassandra Rose Clarke reading binge so... I know this is about robots and apparently it's a tear jerker. I haven't read many books that have made me cry but I think this one will.
Anyway, there you go for this week's T5W even though it's not technically one haha. Thanks for reading!
