Top Five Tuesday – Alphabet

A new Top Five Tuesday, the prompts are created by Bionic Book Worm. This week we’ve got to choose five books that start with the first five letters of the alphabet. I thought this was going to be harder than it was, thank goodness I have all my read books on Goodreads!

6867A – Atonement by Ian McEwan

This was the first A book that came into my head, I adore this book, even though it is quite a sad read. Oddly I like to have a good cry with a book, out of sadness or joy. I love to connect to it that much that it moves me emotionally.

 

 

16071746B – The Boleyn King by Laura Andersen

This whole series is fantastic, a historical au where Anne Boleyn bears Henry VIII a son so isn’t executed. Yes please! It’s filled with well written characters, some we know, some who are new to us and it shines a light on the shady goings on in the Tudor courts.

 

 

25499718C – Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Again this was the first book I thought of for this letter. It’s set in space in the future, the Earth is dying and humanity needs to find a new home. But an experiment to terraform a planet is sabotaged so that instead of intelligent apes evolving there, the genetic accelerant is absorbed by spiders! So clever and fascinating.

 

 

15770927D – Dominion by C.J. Sansom

Another historical ‘what if’! But this one is completely terrifying. What if Britian didn’t take a stand against Hitler and we made peace instead. There is resistance in Britain, can they overthrow the facists? Can they save a very important scientist?This book is so cleverly written, I was shuddering at parts it felt so real. It’s scary to think how close this was to coming true. Thanks Churchill for not backing down.

13536272E – Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett

This is one of the first Discworld books that I read, it’s got the witches and wizards in it and they crack me up! It starts when a dying wizard tries to pass on his powers to an eighth son of an eighth son. The fact that the son is actually a daughter is realised too late. Now the girl must try to make it at the Unseen University where the wizards are completely terrified that a girl has the same powers as them.
