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.
Remember my review last week for Undercover Princess? And how I said there would be more Rosewood Chronicles content coming soon? Well, here it is! Today, I have a spotlight for the fifth and last book in this YA fantasy series, Princess Ever After by Connie Glynn! Now, after loving the first book so much, I knew I was going to want to continue with the series. I also knew that there was no way I was going to read three other books before it was time for me to post this, so I opted for a spotlight instead. If you haven’t read any of the Rosewood Chronicles series, I would suggest checking out my earlier review instead.
Of course, I want to thank The Write Reads team and the publisher, Penguin, for giving me a spot on this tour. I always appreciate it!
Back at you again with a fresh new The Write Reads blog tour! It should be very obvious that I just can’t say no to Dave @ The Write Reads at this point 😂 Honestly, though, when I heard the premise of this story, I couldn’t help but sign up. Today, I’m featuring a book all about rebellious princesses and striving to be the person you want to be in a world that would tear you down for it. It’s an incredible YA fantasy called Undercover Princess by Connie Glynn!
I’m excited to participating in this unique blog tour as this post is a lead up to another I’ll be making later that highlights the fifth book in the Rosewood Chronicles, Princess Ever After. Having never read any of this series, but want to join in on the tour, I signed up to give this book a read and I’m very glad that I did! Before we get into my review, though, I want to thank all the crew at The Write Reads, the publisher, Penguin, and Netgalley for providing me with a free e-book in exchange for my participation with this tour and an honest review. It is, as always, very much appreciated.
Alright, now let’s get to the tour stop post!
