Top Five Bookish Maps | T5T

Hello everyone! Top 5 Tuesday is a weekly blog post run by Shanah at BionicBookWorm, where each week there’s a new topic in which we talk about 5 books that fit that category. This weeks topic is top five bookish maps. 

P.S. have you noticed that it’s not Tuesday? Yeah…I’m a day late. Apologies, classes have started back up and now I’m more confused and disorganized than ever.


I think fantasy books that contain maps are awesome. I love being able to refer to them while I’m reading, and just getting a good visual of everything that the story contains.

Unfortunately, I really haven’t read that many books with maps! I will talk about the few that I have read – aka the very popular and obvious ones!paragraph divder
1) Six of Crows // Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo 28c0e19414c13fff62842c44f9cba3f3

Me when I saw this visual representation of exactly what Kaz and the others would have to go through to break into the Ice Court:

2) Shadow & Bone // Siege & Storm // Ruin & Rising (Grisha Triology) by Leigh Bardugo
Map (1)

If you haven’t read any Leigh Bardugo books yet, you’re really missing out! Both her Grisha Triology and Six of Crows Duology take place in the same universe – the “grishaverse”. I really love how elaborate and sp00ky this world, and look forward to King of Scars next year ❤️

3) Graceling // Fire // Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore f45f79f96e43025dc7239bf9fdf043bdMap
The Graceling Realm is another series that has a universe that I really enjoy. Here, the “Known World” is divided into 7 kingdoms, each of which has different rules and regulations for dealing with those that are “graced” — humans with supernatural abilities. These lands are described very beautifully, and vary from forests with babbling brooks to snowy mountains with unreal creatures.

4) Jane, Unlimited by Kristin Cashore

Another Kristin Cashore book, this one takes place in the Tu Reviens luxurious mansion on its very own island. I really loved being able to see the blueprints of the house, it was super helpful in tracking our characters as they traveled about — especially when weird and mysterious events were occurring….


 

And that’s it! I know, kind of lame — only 4 maps, and I used the same author twice, haha. Leave me some recommendations for more good books that contains maps!
