T5W Science Fiction and Fantasy

It has been too long since my last Top 5 Wednesday and I admit that I’ve missed writing them! I haven’t had much free time lately to do anything really, like reading or think of posts to write, so when I saw this theme I thought it was my opportunity!

I’m pretty sure most of you already know the titles I’m about to mention, whether because they’re quite popular or because I can’t stop talking about them πŸ˜‚Β But today I’m bringing you some Science Fiction and Fantasy recommendations aka my Top 5 of Science Fiction and Fantasy books (this is more of a personal list of favorites).


I’ve been even more obsessed with Percy Jackson ever since I finished The Blood of Olympus, a few days ago. Every time I share a picture of the books, there’s someone who says that they haven’t read them and I immediately start urging them to, because they’re fantastic! They only get better with each book and the sequel series, The Heroes of Olympus, is AMAZING ❀












I read The Host because I was such a big Twilight fan back in 7th grade and I missed the author’s writing. And this one is so much better, so if even you didn’t enjoy Twilight, please give this one a try – it’s so different and I’d almost never tell they were written by the same author. I got The Host from the library to read, but this is one of these books that I really want to keep on my shelf πŸ˜€










The Mortal Instruments and any other Shadowhunter content has been my obsession since 9th grade. I get it that a lot of people can’t get past the first book, and they have a lot of problems with the series, but I personally enjoyed them very much. I haven’t made my way through all the Shadowhunter books, though, but I’m working on it haha








I loved Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children because of its unique characters, but even though my rating was extremely high (I was driven by emotions πŸ˜› ) I still think the first book is lacking something. I’d have to read the rest of the trilogy, but it still makes it to my Top 5 ^^










I read Coraline last year around Halloween and I loved it! It was so creepy, but I couldn’t put it down.





Most of these books are Fantasy because I don’t read a lot of Science Fiction – something I’d actually like to change, and I already have quite a few Science Fiction books on my TBR and wishlist πŸ˜›

What about you? What are your favorite Science Fiction and Fantasy books? πŸ˜€

    My first introduction to Coraline was the movie and OH MY GOD I was super scared. I’m a scaredy-cat, though, and would freak out over the tiniest things. πŸ˜›

    I also liked the Percy Jackson series, but they always strike me as very… young? Like compared to the general MG/YA it was just fun and entertaining, but not with a lot of depth (that’s not to say that this is a bad thing).

      Most of my friends were shocked when I told them that I had never watched Coraline, so I decided to give it a go last Halloween (seemed fitting haha) and both the book and the movie were sooo creepy. I personally don’t enjoy horror movies because I can be easily scared too. Coraline is meant for kids, but still πŸ˜›
      It has been a while since I read the first Percy Jackson books, so I don’t really remember if I found them young. Have you read the heroes of olympus series, tho? πŸ™‚

    I loved Coraline! I read it at primary school and it was pretty dark for the little me. πŸ˜‚ Can’t say the same for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Home though. I had to push myself through the series (because I had bought the whole series for the movie release). Percy Jackson is so great! The Lost Hero is at the top of my TBR list. πŸ€“ I was actually a little bit hesitant to read The Host but I decided I would give it a try anyway!

      I’m sorry to hear you didn’t like Miss Peregrine 😦 I haven’t watched the movie yet because I want to read the entire trilogy first (and, let’s admit it, that is going to take me a bit) but I really enjoyed the first one.
      Coraline scared me a bit too, but I was 17 at the time, and so I wasn’t a primary school student haha
      Have you already read The Host, then? πŸ™‚
