Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Science Fiction and Fantasy Books


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.

This week's topic is Favorite Science Fiction and Fantasy books.  This is a collaboration with the BooktubeSFF Awards, and while nominees have already been selected for each category, this is simply a chance to talk about your own personal favorite Sci-Fi and Fantasy books of all time! 

I don't really think I need to say a whole lot about most of these books that I've selected because if you've been reading this blog for even just a minute, you'll recognize these as ones that I tend to talk about A LOT!
In no particular order, here are my selections.

A Song of Ice and Fire 





The Others series 


A Novel of the Others (5 Book Series) by  Anne Bishop

Marked In Flesh (A Novel of the Others Book 4) by [Bishop, Anne]https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/045147449X/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=thatswhatsh00-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=045147449X&linkId=0fc6a2c8ee9a70b314b00455f203a2f6


An Ember in the Ashes series


An Ember In The Ashes (2 Book Series) by  Sabaa Tahir

Blue Moon Rising




This one has become a new favorite!  The humor and snark are perfection!  Rupert is the second son of a royal family who doesn't need a spare, so he is sent out on a quest to slay a dragon and prove himself.  This quest is straight out of legend, but he soon discovers all the usual things of legend as well as the important stuff that gets leave out!  He ends up finding a dragon and a beautiful princess to rescue, but the dragon turned out to be a better friend than anyone back at the castle and as the evil of Darkwood spreads, Rupert is going to need all the friends he can get.

So those are my favorites!  What are some of your favorite SFF books?  Let me know in the comments!

  2. -A Darker Shade of Magic (2 books so far)
    -The Queen of the Tearling (3 books ... third one was not .. great)

    I'm still investigating good options as I finally have time to read but I'm a big audio book as I drive A LOT. So finding good fantasy books with audio versions has proved a struggle.

    Taking suggestions! ��
