August is another scavenger hunt month for Top 5 Tuesday and I am loving it! This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is Top 5 Books with Swords! Like last week, this was one of the easier scavenger hunt topics and I enjoyed exploring my shelves to find five books to talk about today.
The Inheritance Games Trilogy by Jennifer Lynn Barnes – Similar to last week, all three books in this trilogy have a sword on the cover, which make it the perfect set of books to start out with for this week’s scavenger hunt. I think I’ve been able to use a book from this series three weeks in a row now, and I’m hoping I can somehow fit it in next week.
Well Met by Jen DeLuca – Well Met is one of my favourite romance books and it takes place at a Renaissance Faire. One of the main characters in this book is a pirate, so of course, there are swords involved. I haven’t read the rest of the books in this series yet, but I’m hoping that I get to them soon because I love the Renaissance Faire setting.
The League for Gentlewomen Witches by India Holton – This is a book on my never-ending TBR. This is the second book in a historical romance series, and it looks so much fun. I love the idea of witches and pirates and all of the magical things that could happen.
Zachary Ying and the Dragon Emperor by Xiran Jay Zhao – This magical middle grade book is on my September TBR and I’m looking forward to reading it. I don’t know much about this book, but I do know that it’s inspired by Chinese mythology. I also like that this book has a video game component to it, and I’m sure it’ll be a lot of fun to read.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – Even though I’m a fan of middle-grade, I haven’t read this series yet, which is slightly embarrassing. I don’t know much about this series in general, but I do know that I want to read it before the tv show comes out. This cover also features a sword on it, which makes it the perfect choice to end this list with.
