Top 5 Wednesday – March 8th

Hi everyone and welcome to another Top 5 Wednesday. This weeks top 5 is your top 5 science fiction and fantasy books (BooktubeSFF Awards Crossover Topic!).

Why only 5?! Science fiction and fantasy is my favourite genre of books! In fact, it is the main genre that I read. So I will have some individual books, but I will lump some into their series as it is just easier.

  1. Across The Universe trilogy by Beth Revis

Across the Universe

As I have said before, the Across The Universe trilogy is one of only two trilogies that I like all 3 books in them, the other being The Lord Of The Rings. Set on a sleeper ship, Amy is woken up early from being cryogenically frozen. Whilst the first book is the least like science fiction out of this trilogy, the way that Revis felt with space travel that large scale was impeccable.




  1. Lost Stars by Clauida Gray

Lost Stars was the first Star Wars book from the new canon that I read due to everyone seeming to say that it was amazing. Lost Stars spans the time from the when the Galactic Republic became the Galactic Empire, right up until about a year after the destruction of the second Death Star. We follow two characters on either side of this conflict and see how even though they were brought up the same, how your experiences affect your decisions.



  1. Dark Disciple by Christie Golden


Click here for my review of Dark Disciple.

Dark Disciple was one that I am surprised by how much I loved. It focuses on Quinlan Vos and his attempt to assassinate Count Dooku. Obviously, he failed; but the character growth in this was insane.





  1. The Long Way To A Small, Angry Planet series

These two books are just amazing, and that is just the covers. I would call this more hard science fiction compared to the other science fiction books that I read. I would say that you have to be in the mood to read these books as it is not a mindless read. The way that everything is explained, from the way that the ships operate to how they create wormholes was so simple for such a complex thing.


  1. Tuf Voyaging By George R.R. Martin


It has been almost 3 years since I read Tuf Voyaging, and whilst I do not remember exactly every detail about it, I remember it being amazing. I picked it up because the library did not have the next book in the Song Of Ice And Fire series in and this was on the shelf. Not your usual science fiction story, one man with his cats manages to become the owner of the last seed ship of Earth’s Ecological Engineering Corps. What follows is just a great book.




So those are my top 5 books that get me out of reading slumps! Are you doing Top 5 Wednesday? If so link to your post in the comments! It is always interesting how different everyone’s tastes are! Click here to go to the Goodreads page for Top 5 Wednesday and click here to go to my archive page for all of my Top 5 Wednesday posts.

  1. My sister loves Star Wars, since we’re celebrating our (we’re twins) birthday on Saturday when she comes home, I thought of buying her a Star Wars book. ‘Lost Stars’ sounds like a great book to get her, thanks for the recommendation! x

      Happy birthday!!! I hope that your twin enjoys it! I personally have not read as much of the new canon as I would have liked but you can check out my other reviews of Star Wars books if you would like more ideas :)
