Greetings Fellow Book Dragons!
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme within the book community that was created by Lainey of GingerReadsLainey, but is now hosted by Sam of Thoughts on Tomes. If you’re interested in participating, find out more on the Goodreads group.
Here are my selections in no particular order:
Featuring a strong female protagonist, Katsa is a Graceling, a person born with a rare supernatural ability or Grace. She is gifted with the ability to kill and becomes the King’s personal assassin; however, she secretly forms a council and uses her grace to seek out and right injustices. There is also an incredibly believable and swoon-worthy romance because of course there is! And because fantasy is one of those genres that is hard for people to get into, this is a great introductory book to dip your toes in before moving on to bigger and bolder worlds.
This book turned the psychological thriller on its head and made the summer beach read of 2012 a very dark and twisted one. Five years later and marketing campaigns are still trying to sell readers the next “Gone Girl.” This is a brilliant study in dual perspectives and building tension and suspense towards the ultimate climax.
So those are my picks for future classics! What are some that you want added to the classics canon? Let me know in the comments!
