Top 5 Wednesday #41: Best Reads So Far

t5w

Welcome to another top 5 wednesday! Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Samantha and Lainey! You can check the group here for more discussions and topic.

Now that we’re halfway through 2018, I have to say that this year is better than expected. I’ve been reading a lot of books I keep putting off, and I finally do my Harry Potter reread I’ve planned for so long. Overall, I also felt like the books I read this year is better than 2017… I can easily pick 5 of my favorites instead of skipping this topic like I did last year 😅 So without further ado, let’s see which books are my top 5 read so far!

Lady Renegades by Rachel Hawkins

25938402

I think we all could agree that Miss Mayhem does not capture the fun of Rebel Belle really well, but Lady Renegades redeem the series for me! It was fun, fast paced, and got the story going. Plus, the romance isn’t that obvious and confusing and more focusing on girls friendship!

Princesses Behaving Badly by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie

36297174

One of the few non-fiction I read this year, this book captures the spirit of real life princesses, who obviously do more than sit still and look pretty. They lead rebellions, usurp the throne, became spy, even kill. The writing style is light, it’s like you’re reading trivia instead of learning the history ♕.

The Price Guide to the Occult by Leslye Walton

35879387

A surprising read for me, because most of the reviews I read were mixed. They all complained about the pacing of this book, but I actually find them necessary and work well with the something-dark-is-coming buildup. The ending was lacking tbh, but it was a fascinating and atmospheric read ✨

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K Rowling

17347382

Another surprising read! I keep putting this book off because it’s HUGE and the movie is not really memorable to me except they all need a haircut, but this book ended up being one of my favorite in the series! It was magical, fun, and of course, where the dark starts to creep in.

A Thousand Beginnings and Endings by Ellen Oh

35430013

One of my recent reads, this book contains 15 short stories based on Asian mythologies and folktales. It is beautiful, mythical, and most importantly, pays homage to asian stories and values. It’s a book we all been waiting for, and more.

How was 2018 so far? What is your best read this year?

  1. I need to read The Price Guide to the Occult for a review, so I’m glad to see it talked about positively – I was getting quite worried haha. I’m super-excited for A Thousand Beginnings and Endings. And I 1000% agree – they all needed a haircut in the Goblet of Fire movie lol.
