It’s Tuesday and so it’s time for this week’s Top 5 Tuesday post. Top 5 Tuesday was created by Shanah at Bionic Book Worm, and it is now being hosted by the lovely Meeghan at Meeghan reads!! For details of all of the prompts for Apr to June, see Meeghan’s post here

It’s #WyrdandWonder month and the topics for Top 5 Tuesday in May are perfect for choosing fantasy novels so I’m covering two for the price of one today😃The gorgeous art work is perfect for this week’s topic too.

Here are my top 5 fantasy books about water.

The Adventures of Amina-al-Sirafi
I loved this book about the middle aged pirate Amina. It’s certainly one of my favourites so far this year.

The Dolphins of Pern by Anne McCaffrey
Anne McCaffreys Dragons of Pern series is one of my all-time favourite fantasy series. This one about the dolphins and seas of Pern wasn’t my favourite but still a good read.

The Ship of Magic by Robin Hobb
The Liveship Traders is such a brilliant trilogy. I just loved the world that Robin Hobb created in these books.

The Bone Ships by R J Barker
Another great trilogy. Giant ships built from the bones of ancient dragons sail the seas as two nations fight an endless war. The characters in these books are unforgettable.

The Last Stormlord by Glenda Larke
I love the work of Australian author Glenda Larke. The Stormlord is the only one who has the power to move the clouds and bring water to the cities and towns of the Quartern. He is dying and there is no heir. Without water, there is no life.

Thanks Meeghan for a great topic this week. I’m already looking forward to next week’s Earth topic.

What would your top 5 books with water be?

  1. If I was thinking in the fantasy genre, it would be Fable, Saint, Namesake (all by Adrienne Young), The Drowned Woods by Emily Lloyd-Jones and Mazarine by Cece Louise.

  2. I really, really want to read Hobb! I just got the first trilogy off Book Depository before it closed. I hope I can pick it up soon!
