Top 5 Tuesday is a fun, weekly meme that asks you to pick 5 books that fit that week’s theme. It was created by Bionic Bookworm and is currently being hosted by Meeghan Reads. You should check out their wonderful blog for more details and the list of prompts!
It’s time for another Top 5 Tuesday! For this week’s cover scavenger hunt, I’ll be looking for some of my favorite books with crowns on the cover. This was, once again, surprisingly difficult, though not as bad as last week’s keys. That being said, I managed to find five books that I truly enjoyed that also have a crown on the cover.
So let’s jump into the post!
#1. Little Thieves by Margaret Owen
Are you looking for a dark fairytale that features a kickass female main character? This might be the book for you! And it has a teeny, tiny crown right about the title, so I get to include it in this list. I loved this story so much; it made me emotional in ways I wasn’t expecting and it was such an incredibly written story. It’s also the first in a series, so I get to read more about our fine gremlin girl, Vanja, and the encyclopedia who loves her, Emeric.
#2. Redemptor by Jordan Ifueko
You all know how much I love Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko. It’s definitely in my top five favorite books of all time! That being said, I don’t talk about the sequel, Redemptor, nearly enough. I loved this book so much! It built on what Raybearer started, growing the world and the characters in the best of ways. It also had some pretty creepy elements that I just ate up! I’m glad Tarisai is rocking a crown on the cover so I could include it on the list.
#3. Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn
This book was such a delightful surprise! I read it for a blog tour and fell in love with the setting and the characters. Connie Glynn’s writing made the story so effortless to read. And, of course, with a princess involved, there’s a crown on the cover! I really need to continue on with this series because I can tell it’s going to develop in a direction I’m going to enjoy. I’m hoping to pick up the second book soon!
#4. A Universe of Wishes edited by Dhonielle Clayton
I’m happy I spotted the crown on this book. I haven’t read a ton of short story collections, so I’m still on the fence on how I feel about them. That being said, an anthology filled with diverse fantasy stories is a sure way to capture my attention! Like any collection, there were stories in here I loved and stories I thought were just okay. Overall, though, this was such a fun and inclusive read that introduced me to some authors I would love to continue to read.
#5. Among the Beasts & Briars by Ashley Poston
This book not only has a crown on it, but it’s simply gorgeous 😍 My OwlCrate edition, which is black with maroon sprayed edges, is even more spectacular! I’m happy that the inside of the book is just as enjoyable as the outside. This was a fast-paced, eerie read that had me instantly entranced! I quickly fell in love with Cerys and Fox and loved watching their journey throughout this book. Creepy forest books own a part of my soul, I swear.
