This was actually the topic two weeks ago but I missed it then, so I thought I’ll post today. And this was such a fun exercise, trying to find some of my favorite books with numbers in their titles. And I’m glad I found ten very awesome books. Let’s get started…!!!!
One of my most recent reads in this list, One Giant Leap is a sweet and adorable romance which has the unique premise of a space travel setting.
I honestly cant tell you what my experience of reading The Two Towers was like, but I loved the trilogy overall and adore the movies.
A very surprising book on my recent favorites list, Three Parts Dead is a unique fantasy novel which has magic users working as beaurocrats and turn up to solve murder mysteries involving gods. Definitely recommend.
I don’t think I liked The Sign of Four when I first read it years ago, but it was a very enjoyable experience to listen to it narrated by Stephen Fry recently.
One of the most well written and imaginative fantasies, The Fifth Season deserves all the accolades that are heaped on it.
Another book I dont remember much about, but The 6th Extinction is part of the Sigma Force series which I love and wait every year for a new installment.
The beginning of one of my all time favorite adventure series, Seven Ancient Wonders is full of awe and wonder featuring an enigmatic, almost undefeatable hero.
I love Sarina Bowen’s Ivy Years series, and The Fifteenth Minute was the last book which made for a nice wrap up of all the characters whom I had met throughout.
Jemisin’s debut, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms may not be as brilliant as her Hugo winning trilogy but it has some excellent world building and mythology.
Probably my favorite book in this list, A Thousand Beginnings and Endings is the absolutely brilliant anthology where some of the most wonderful South Asian authors reimagine the folktales and myths on which they have grown up. Highly highly recommend.
