Top 5 Tuesday: Surprising Reads of 2019

Hello fellow readers. Today’s Top 5 Tuesday is brought to you by Bionic Book Worm. She’s done a fantastic job of giving Top 5 list topics for two whole years now, so if you guys have any ideas for a new list, send it her way!

This latter half of 2019 has been a slower reading time for me. I haven’t found as much time to sit back and read as I would like, but I have managed to finish a good number of books or stories.


#1 The Snow Queen
I am a fan of short stories, so I wasn’t worried about not enjoying this piece, but I was surprised by how much I liked it. It was a fun, quick, and entertaining piece to read.

#2 Mistborn
I didn’t realize how interested in this book series I would be. It had an interesting premise when I heard about it, but I was hooked by the first few chapters. I can’t wait to dive into books 2 and 3 in 2020.

#3 Fire and Blood
A political book of the Game of Thrones universe. Sounds like it could be interesting, but I wasn’t too sure at first. Turns out, this was one of my favourite books in the Game of Thrones series.

#4 The Devil’s Apprentice
Pleasantly surprised won’t do this book any justice, but that is how I felt when I read this books. I was a bit indifferent at first, but it quickly turned into a book I thoroughly enjoyed.

#5 The Wheel of Time
I am not necessarily surprised by how good each book has been, but instead I am excited about how entertaining the series continues to be, despite it nearing the 10th or so book I am reading.
