Top Five Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey and hosted Sam from Thoughts On Tomes over on Goodreads. This week’s topic is top 5 books without romance.
I was only slightly surprised at how difficult it was to find books without romance in general, since romance tends to be in most YA books and I usually read YA. I’m excited for this one, because, while I like romance, I want to read more books without it as a plot device.
5 – The Lord of the Flies
Possibly my favorite classic, there’s no romance to speak of in this one.
4 – 172 Hours on the Moon
No romance, more of a horror!
3 – A Monster Calls
This one was just plain sad. But, no romance!
2 – Between Shades of Gray
I don’t recall any romance in this one, but we can chalk that up to the fact it’s about a girl in a concentration camp during WWII. Whoops I lied, there’s some romance in this one! I had forgotten about it. Shhh you didn’t see anything.
1 – The Martian
The only romance in this one is between Mark and his potatoes. And even that one can’t last. (There might be, like, a smidgen of side-romance but it’s basically not even there, so I’m counting this.)
That’s it for this week. Thanks for reading!
