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!

This week’s Top 5 Tuesday topic is Books with Water. This was a bit of a strange topic, so I decided to pick five books that take place near or on the water.

Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie – This Christie classic takes place on a cruise that is travelling down the Nile. While I enjoyed this Poirot adventure, I’m having a difficult time remembering the specific details of this one, especially because I watched the film recently and it’s hard to remember what details are from the book and which are from the movie.

The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J. Klune – This cozy fantasy story takes place by the sea. This was my introduction to the cozy fantasy genre and I thought it was great. I enjoyed the characters and I understand why people describe this book as a warm hug.

Malibu Rising by Taylor Jenkins Reid – This book is about a lot of things, but one thing that the Riva siblings have in common is that they love surfing and the water. This book is probably my least favourite Taylor Jenkins Reid book that I’ve read so far, but I still enjoyed it. The biggest downside of this book is that I felt like there were too many perspectives going on, which made things overly complicated.

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch – This is the first book in an urban fantasy mystery series and it is fantastic. The Rivers of London play a major role in this series and the Rivers make for some pretty great characters. If you haven’t heard of this series, I highly recommend checking it out.

The Ship of Shadows by Maria Kuzniar – This middle grade fantasy adventure is a ton of fun. It features an all woman pirate crew, magic, and lots and lots of cake. This book helped me get hooked on middle grade fantasy and I am incredibly glad I read it.
