Top 5 Wednesday | Best Suggested Books

Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by GingerReadsLainey over on Goodreads. This week’s topic is Best Suggested Books That You Loved. However, I was only personally suggested three of these. The others I was suggested via BookTube or little paper slips taped in front of the book at the bookstore. I’m okay with that!



Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith was recommended to me by a bookstore flyer, and I was not disappointed in the slightest.



I’ll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson was recommended to me by BookTube (like many books I have actually yet to read, oops), and I loved how much pain this novel caused me. I know it’s not supposed to hurt, but I was grinding my teeth hoping for a certain event and spent the whole novel wondering if it was going to happen or not. It was fun.


This series was recommended to me back when I was on my previous blog on Tumblr, and I absolutely loved it. The Study Series by Maria V. Snyder is fantastic, and I have yet to read the newest books in it (I think there’s only one at the moment), but I plan to ASAP.



Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell was recommended to me by a close friend and, if you’ve been here a while, you know exactly how I feel about this book.



Yup. A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin was recommended to me as a buddy read in preparation for the release of A Dance with Dragons, and I ended up accidentally bypassing my friend’s reading pace and finishing the entire thing way too early. Needless to say, I was no disappointed in the series and I still wait with baited breath for the next book and TV episode. I love both to bits. (Sansa bby don’t fail me now.)

These are not the covers I have, I have the standard ones, but I thought they were too pretty not to use as a picture reference. I don’t like that the books are split up, that actually drives me nuts, but the scenery. Ugh, it’s so pretty.

And thus ends my Top 5 Wednesday. Thanks for reading!

  1. You should follow the recommended read order by Snyder on her blogs. It’s become a chronicle now. There’s some novellas and “trilogies” before the new Study series. It makes a lot more sense if you read the correct order. You’ll get a lot more of what’s going on.


    1. It’s been four or five years since I’ve read the books, but Poison Study is the first book on that list, isn’t it? I have read the novella that comes after Poison Study, but I haven’t read past the first three official books in that series. I plan on reading all of them!


      1. Err yeah there’s a couple novellas (i believe one is in Valeks perspective), then the other which is read after the original trilogy. Then I believe it’s the Glass trilogy then the new Study series (two books are out). I’m not totally sure the exact order but the two novellas are on Maria Snyders website!


    1. I was scared, too! They’re huge books and to be honest I think I only managed to finish them like I did because I was on vacation and had no other obligations but to read 😅 they’re good though!
