Hello everyone!

Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, and it’s now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their wonderful blog to get the details and the prompts for each week!

March is a scavenger hunt month for Top Five Tuesday, which is still proving to be a lot of fun! This week’s prompt is books with clocks, which took a bit of thinking, but I’m happy with the covers that came to mind this week. This week’s prompt also left me slightly confused because there are at least covers that I thought had clocks on them but are actually entirely clockless.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – Unpopular opinion, but I did not love this book. I didn’t hate it; I just didn’t like it, and I don’t quite understand all of the hype. What I do love about this book, though, is the cover. This was the first cover I thought of when I saw that I was looking for clocks this week. I love how magical this cover is, and even though I didn’t love this book, I could definitely spend hours admiring the cover.

The Hand on the Wall by Maureen Johnson – I will take every opportunity I can to talk about how much I love the Truly Devious series. I love the covers in this series, and I love the clock in the background of this cover. I loved how this book wrapped up the trilogy, and I adore all of the characters in this series, even David.

The Clocks by Agatha Christie – This book jumped out at me when I was looking for books with clocks on them because it’s in the title. I haven’t read this book yet, and I likely won’t get to it for a while because I’m only reading one Poirot book a month, but I’m looking forward to reading it. So far, I’ve enjoyed all of the Poirot books I’ve read; there’s just something comforting about the Belgian detective.

The Clocks

The Rehearsals by Annette Christie – This debut romance novel features a Groundhog Day twist. The premise of this book sounds like a lot of fun, even if reliving a disastrous rehearsal dinner over and over again sounds like a nightmare. I also really like the cover of this book, and it happens to feature a clock!

Operation Angus by Terry Fallis – This was one of my most anticipated reads of 2021, but unfortunately, I did not get to it. Operation Angus follows Angus and Daniel, the beloved duo from The Best Laid Plans, which is one of my favourite books. I will say that I’m slightly disappointed that the style of this cover doesn’t match the style of the first two books, but it does feature a clock which makes it work for this week’s prompt!

  1. Well, I would have never guessed that there were so many books that featured clocks. Now I’m curious as to how many books I have read that feature clocks. Some of these books sound like I would enjoy them, so I will have to add them to my TBR.

  2. I can’t believe my copy of The Night Circus doesn’t have a clock on it. I’m feeling so ripped off after seeing this cover on so many posts this week. The Rehearsals sounds cute though!!
    Hope you had fun with this week’s prompt! (And sorry I’m so late visiting!) 💕
