Top 5 Wednesday: Favourite Maps

Top 5 WednesdayIt’s Wednesday so that means that it’s Top 5 Wednesday and this week’s topic is favourite maps. To find more about Top 5 Wednesday’s you can join the goodreads group and discover the creator of the group Lainey. So let’s get started…





Number 5: Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne



Monument 14 (Monument 14, #1)I find that it is rare for a dystopian/ post-apocalyptic book to contain a map but this one does. I feel like it adds scope to the novel and you can understand the location of each person in relation to each other. This novel is also set in a supermarket so you can see how they adapt it to their needs.  










Number 4: The Lord Of The Rings/The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien 













The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)The Lord of the RingsBeing one of the most epic fantasy novels ever, it is expected that the maps would be one of the best and most stunning around and they are. Again the scope of series is massive and the maps themselves let you kept up with their journey. 








Number 3: Song Of Ice & Fire series by George R.R. Martin 



A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)I have to admit that I have not read the book or seen the television show (this is kind of a lying I am 20 pages through the first book but I don't think that counts) but the map is beautiful and it looks like it would be helpful to visual the lands









Number 2: The Grisha Trilogy by Leigh Bardugo




Shadow and Bone (The Grisha, #1)I really enjoyed this trilogy but the scope of this book is quite large so having a map really helped in knowing where the characters were plus the map in the series were really beautifully illustrated so that helps too.











Number 1:Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas



Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass, #1)Again this is an epic fantasy series and this makes it more understandable especially when the first novel does cover a large area and I would find times when I would look at the maps for guidance and found it helpful. Plus they are very pretty too.






Honorable Mentions:


-Harry Potter-Marauder's Map- I know this is in the film and I don't think can be seen in the books but it is a nice looking map.

-The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon- Although I do wish there was more than just the one map, I feel like it helps with Sheol I although not the prettiest of maps.







Image result for prentisstown map-The Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness- Although only in the last book which I haven't read again the map helps with identifying places and giving an idea of where they are. A nice edition to a good series. 







Image result for downsiders map- Downsiders by Neal Shusterman- Also another nice map in books and can give a good contrast with the topside and the side with which they live. 









- Legend by Marie Lu- I like the map in this book as it gives scope to the new dystopian America as the land has changed a large amount. (This map is in Prodigy)

1 Year Blogging Anniversary and Giveaway (CLOSED)

So if you could not see by the title of the blog post, it has been a year since I posted my first blog post. I can happily say that this blog has changed a lot in this one year, I mean the layout has not been dramatically altered but the content has. This blog has increased my passion for reading and has been a way that I can spread this with everyone in this community. This has led me to read some incredible books and interact with some great people and I can happily say that I feel part of the community. 

Due to this being the first year of the blog existing, I hope for this to be the first of many so to track the changes in my blogging life especially in terms of my reading life. So let's get started...

Q1) Favourite book?

The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak- No book that I have read in the last two years seems to surpass how much I love this book but I am not saying that the books that I have read after this one are bad I just like this one a bit more...










Q2) What book do you hope to re…

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (OPEN)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...
