Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.
This week’s topic is Top 5 Favorite Buzz-Words.
Buzz-words are what lure you into a great book, or can sometimes mislead you into thinking what you’re going to get but is not what you expected in the end. There are several things I look out for that can either make me buy a book or put it back on the shelf. But today I will bring you five examples of buzz-words that made me pick up the book and read it!
Simon Vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
“Rife with realistic, high school relationships and drama, with a laugh or two at every turn, this is a coming-of-age, coming-out, and defying-the-odds story with which many teens will identify.” (SLJ)
Red Rising by Pierce Brown
“Fast-paced, gripping, well-written—the sort of book you cannot put down. I am already on the lookout for the next one.”—Terry Brooks, New York Times bestselling author of The Sword of Shannara
The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson
“Dark and frequently grim situations are lightened by realistic dialogue and genuineness of feeling. [A] heartbreaking yet ultimately hopeful work from a writer to watch.” (Booklist)
2. Beg for Seqeul / Crave the Sequel etc.
Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes
“Falling Kingdoms will gut you emotionally. It will make you ache, cry, and beg for the sequel as you turn the last page. I absolutely loved it.” —Julie Kagawa, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Queen
1. Unlike / Unique / Different
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
“Unlike anything I’ve ever read.” ―Veronica Roth
