August is another scavenger hunt month for Top 5 Tuesday and I am very excited for it! This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is Top 5 Books with Keys! I enjoy scavenger hunt months because I like exploring my shelves to see what I can find. The first four books on my list this week were easy to think of, the last one was a bit more of a struggle.
Octavia Bloom and the Missing Key by Estelle Grace Tudor – This magical middle-grade book was the first book I thought of when I saw this week’s prompt. The key is front and centre on this cover and I think it does a wonderful job of drawing potential readers in. This book features a magical fairy world, a family secret, and lots of adventure. It’s definitely worth checking out for fans of middle-grade fantasy.
The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett – There are a lot of editions of the classic children’s story and some of them happen to have a key on the cover. I read this book a few years ago and I really don’t remember much about it. I do remember thinking that the secret garden was a magical place and that I wouldn’t mind exploring it.
The Inheritance Games by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – Even though the key is right in the centre of this cover, it’s a bit difficult to spot because there’s a lot going on with this cover. The Inheritance Games trilogy is one of my favourite series and I cannot wait to see how everything wraps up when The Final Gambit is released later this month.
Hotel Magnifique by Emily J. Taylor – I haven’t read this book yet, but I’ve heard great things about it and it’s on my TBR. This book sounds like it’s quite magical, which is always a good thing. I also love the colours of this cover, and I bet it looks even better in person.
Nightbooks by J.A. White – This book does not have a key on the cover, but the doorway on the cover looks like a keyhole, so I’m going to use it for this week’s scavenger hunt. I started this book a while ago but ended up taking a break because it was too spooky. I’m hoping to pick it up again in October, because I think it’ll be a perfect Halloween read.
