Hey Epic Geeks,

This weeks Top 5 Wednesday is all about fantasy and science fiction books. I love fantasy and sci-fi so I absolutely had to do this prompt.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy isn’t necessarily the best sci-fi book in the world, but it’s definitely one that everyone should read. This has a lot of references you will hear throughout your life, including the answer to the universe, the ultimate answer; 42.

Ender’s Game is a science fiction by Orson Scott Card that I absolutely love. I really think this is the first science fiction book I had ever read but I definitely enjoyed it. I don’t remember if I have read the entire series, but I do recommend the first book. I actually haven’t read this in probably 7 years.

Marked for the Hunt is an Urban Fantasy by Leah Chiasson that you’ve heard me talk about a lot before. Actually, you’ve heard me talk about all of the fantasy books before. I have a full review of Marked for the Hunt. I love everything about this book and I cannot wait to see more from her!

Six of Crows (and the second book Crooked Kingdom) is a duology by Leigh Bardugo. They’re fantasy but I’ve also seen the duology marked as sci-fi due to some of the aspect. Regardless of what genre you categorize the books as, I love them so much. I still haven’t written my reviews. I’m not sure why. I just love, love, love them so much. I haven’t read her Grisha trilogy yet, but those are also definitely worth reading as far as I’ve been told.

A Court of Mist and Fury is actually book two to A Court of Thorns and Roses. I’m pretty new to high fantasy and Sarah J Maas is the queen of high fantasy. Both this series and her Throne of Glass series is amazing! I definitely recommend both! I have full reviews of A Court of Thorns and RosesA Court of Mist and Fury, and Throne of Glass if you’re interested.


What are YOUR favorite fantasy and sci-fi books? I really need to add more science fiction to my list. I love utopian and distopian books, but I wasn’t counting those as “sci-fi”. Let me know in the comments below so I can lengthen my TBR!


In the mean time, keep calm and stay epic,
