“Place ten dozen hungry orphan thieves in a bank burrow of vaults and tunnels beneath what used to be a graveyard, put them under the supervision of one partly crippled old man, and you will soon find that governing them becomes a delicate business.”First line in Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch
Hi, guys. 5 star books in 5 words was originally created by Matthew Sciarappa over on Youtube and is actually a really fun tag. I’ve seen it around a lot as part of Wyrd and Wonder already and wanted to add my version. The rules are:
- Pick 5 books you rated 5 stars.
- Describe your love for each book by picking 5 words.
- Don’t explain the words. To those who haven’t read the books, it might not make sense.
Since it’s Wyrd and Wonder month, I’ve of course chosen 5 fantasy books so let’s get to it!
The Library of the Unwritten by A. J. Hackwith
Hell – Books – Friendships – Hero – Authors
The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern
Doors – Volumes – Feelings – Honey – Destiny
Timekeeper by Tara Sim
Clocks – Spirit – London – Anxiety – Damage
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson
Light – Politics – Spren – Bridge – Swords
Half Bad by Sally Green
Witch – You – Heritage – Captivity – Betrayal
Were you able to make any sense of that? Well, it was fun to do so if you fancy doing it yourself, feel free to consider yourself tagged.
