Top 5 Tuesday: Books With War/Battle

Happy Top 5 Tuesday, book friends! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly meme created by Bionic Bookworm, now hosted by Meeghan Reads. If you’re interested in participating, check out their blog to get the details and the prompts for each week.

This week’s prompt is books that include a war or battle. I tend not to read books with these themes in them, so it will be interesting to see what I can come up with.

Hawksong by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

I know, I know. I mention this book like every other week. But the whole idea is an arranged marriage to try and end a war between two societies, so of course it popped up first for me. (Side note: I am thrilled I finally found an image with the real cover for book one).

Her Majesty’s Royal Coven by Juno Dawson

This one both involves on the page battles between witches and allusions to a historical war that the women fought in.

How Not to Fall in Love by Jacqueline Firkins

Does LARPing count? Because the battle may be imaginary but it’s still a battle, right?

Matrix by Lauren Groff

Nuns defending their home totally counts as battle.

The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot

Suze does her fair share of punching ghosts in this series, and I’d argue that she and Paul Slater are in a weird sort of personal war.

Well, I got to five books, so we’ll call that a win!
