Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey (Gingerreadslainey on Youtube) as a way for book reviewers and lovers to share their love of lists every Wednesday. Check out the Goodreads group.

  1. Throne of Glass
  2. Before She Ignites
  3. The Glass Spare
  4. The Memory Keepers
  5. Wicked Like a Wildfire

This week’s Top 5 is all about books I’ve removed from my TBR. I typically don’t add a ton of books to my To Read Shelf unless I’m pretty sure I’ll read them. Unfortunately reading preferences change and there’s only so much time to pick up books these days so this list is comprised of owned and unowned titles that I wanted to read but no longer do.

Are any of these books on your list?

  1. How to Make a Wish
  2. Love Songs & Other Lies
  3. Song of the Current
  4. Running with Lions
  5. The King of Bourbon Street

It’s time for another round of Top 5 Summer Reads! I realize this was actually last week’s topic but I didn’t want to miss it. Up first is Ashley Herring Blake’s How to Make a Wish. I adored this heavy contemporary last year during my summer vacation and Grace’s story should be read by everyone.  Next is Love Songs & Other Lies by Jessica Pennington which combines summer, romance, time jumps, and music perfectly. Song of the Current by Sarah Tolcser is a gorgeous fantasy set on the water and Running with Lions by Julian Winters plays right into my soccer fanatic side. Last but not least is a steamy romance in Thea de Salle’s The King of Bourbon Street.

Any of these pique your interest for the summertime?

  1. SW FX Lightsaber
  2. Six of Crows Character Cards
  3. Ravenclaw Robes
  4. Anything Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes
  5. Soldier. Summoner. Saint. Poster by Irene Koh

This week’s Top 5 Wednesday is all about favorite fandom items and I decided to feature picks that I desperately want. First is a high quality SW lightsaber for my everyday fighting needs. Next up are the gorgeous Six of Crows character cards that were made for the release of Crooked Kingdom. I’ve got Inej and Wylan but would love to complete my set. Every Hogwarts student needs their own robes and I’d love to rep Ravenclaw. Unfortunately the movie version is different than the books. Still on the HP train I’d love anything and everything from Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes. Skiving Snackboxes, Extendable Ears, etc. Last but not least is the beautiful Soldier. Summoner, Saint. Poster with art from Irene Koh.

What are some of your favorite fandom items? Anything you’re lusting after?

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Sci-Fi & Fantasy in Other Media

  1. Firefly
  2. Battlestar Galactica
  3. Eureka
  4. Warehouse 13
  5. Killjoys

This week’s Top 5 is Fave Sci-Fi and Fantasy in Other Media and since this is such a broad topic I narrowed it down to television shows. Even after limiting the field this was a doozy to choose only five. Up first is Firefly with space western theme and endearing crew. It deserved better. Next is Battlestar Galactica (reboot) with a sweeping space epic and gritty take on morality/humanity. The last three are a slew of SyFy shows I watched as they aired. Eureka and Warehouse 13 were such quirky adventures that I still adore and Killjoys is a current fave focusing on bounty hunters, power plays, and so much more.

What are some of your fave science fiction and fantasy in other media?
