A couple of weeks ago we started doing the 5 On My TBR bookish meme and it was a lot of fun, so we want to bring this meme to the blog more regularly! This bookish meme is hosted by E from Local Bee Hunter’s Nook. For this week the prompt is Animals. I don’t think I have that many books with animals on my TBR but let’s take a look!
1.Serephina – Rachel Hartman
Dragons! They count as animals right? Hopefully so because I have a feeling most of this list will have multiple books with dragons haha. This book has been on my TBR for quite a while and I still want to read it pretty badly. The cover is gorgeous!
2. His Majesty’s Dragon – Naomi Novik
I love love loved Uprooted and have been wanting to read another book by Naomi Novik ever since. At the moment I have two of her books on my TBR and I hope to read either one soon. I haven’t heard that much about His Majesty’s Dragon but I’m very curious about it.
3. Grim Lovelies – Megan Shepherd
Animals who are enchanted to humans, sounds quite intriguing to me. And I also love that it takes place in Paris. The reviews aren’t great, and I didn’t love the other Megan Shepherd book I read. But I still would like to experience this one for myself.
4. Fire & Heist – Sarah Beth Durst
Wyverns going on a heist sounds so cool to me. This is another one with not so great reviews but I really like that it’s a standalone. I also think it might be a pretty fast read, it’s not a very big book. While it probably won’t be the best book I’ve ever read, I do hope I will at least enjoy it.
5. The Storm Crow – Kalyn Josephson
This story has to do with elemental magical crows, another very cool concept. I also think I see a trend with these books haha. Apparently I’m just interested in reading about magical animals haha. My Goodreads friends are very divided on this book, from DNF’ing it, to 2 stars to 5 stars and everything in between. I’m very curious to see where I fall on that scale.
I had more books with animals than I expected! And I have to say, making this list brought some of these back on my radar. That’s definitely part of why I love participating in the 5 on my TBR! Have you read any of these books? I would love to hear your opinions!
