How was your week? I feel like I mostly slept through mine… I’m half asleep while writing this to be honest. At least I managed to listen to some audiobooks because I’m so failing on reading this month
#5OnMyTBR is a bookish meme hosted by E. @ Local Bee Hunter’s Nook (me!) and you can learn more about it here or in the post announcing it. It occurs every Monday when we post about 5 books on our TBR.
This week’s prompt is Ensemble Cast!
Sorry about that spelling mistake, btw. It’s ensemble not assemble… I definitely know how to write things… Anyway! Large casts are cool and have found family potential so let’s get into that!
|| The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi ||
💛 set in France?
💛 lots of rep
💛 pretty cover
I actually don’t know much about this book?
I mean, ensemble cast and found family and lots of rep sounds good enough and the rest I can learn when I read this beauty.
Also, THIS COVER??!! YES, PLEASE!!
|| Lucky 7 by Rae D. Magdon ||
This one gives me Sense8 and The Old Guard vibes.
It’s super queer and it’s about found family gropu of operatives with a jacker (
a jean hacker someone who can plug oneself to virtual reality) and a handler sapphic romance!!
|| When We Were Magic by Sarah Gailey ||
💛 accidental murder
I am adamant to finally give Sarah Gailey’s book more than 3 stars (even though 3 stars is a good rating!!) and hopefully this will be the one to break the spell!
Queer witches + accidental murder?? I need it!!
|| The Afterward by E.K. Johnston ||
💛 quest plot subverted
💛 all female group of knights/thieves with only one man
Ok, we can agree that badass women don’t need explanation — just look at this cover and tell me you wouldn’t add it to your TBR.
But also, it subverses some popular fantasy tropes which is always interesting to watch.
|| Critical Role – Vox Machina: Origins by Matthew Colville ||
💛 Critical Role
Ah! I miss Vox Machina so much!! Can’t wait to read about where they came from and their adventures from before the podcast.
Also! Look at them!! Don’t they look pretty in the comic form??
What ensemble cast books have you already read? I’m pretty sure the most popular is still Six of Crows (and hell yeah, I liked it too) but anything else?? Take into consideration that I love found family feels!!
- Do you participate in #5OnMyTBR?
- Do you have any of those on your TBR?
- Have you read them maybe? (Make me read them then!!)
