Story Maps | Top 5 Wednesday [#5]


Welcome back to another Top 5 Wednesday! This fun weekly meme was created by Lainey over at GingerReadsLainey. If you want to join in the fun and be apart of the #T5W … you can find all the details at the GoodReads page.

This week’s topic is Top 5 Story Maps.

A good fantasy always has an epic map to help you along the journey of reading! I can attest to getting lost numerous times reading some great YA fantasy books and if it wasn’t for the maps at the front of the novel I would cry. Literally.

So let’s jump right in!

5. Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch

Map5 Snow like ashesI love this map for a lot of different reasons. One of the major ones is how it gets split up into different seasons. It was one of my favorite parts of the story too. I can’t wait to get to explore the rest of the map in book 2 coming out this fall!

4. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Map4 Throne of GlassBy golly does this series ever travel through this great map. I would honestly be lost without it. Even now I still can never figure out where all the places are located! Such a grand landscape.

3. The Young Elites by Marie Lu

Map3 The Young ElitesThis map is vastly covered with water. I hope this means that there will be a lot of boat traveling to come! I’m in the mood for some pirate action.

2. Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson

Map2 Kiss of DeceptionLook at the details in this one! Absolutely stunning. I can’t take my eyes off of how pretty it looks. Makes me wish I was apart of this world!

1. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

Map1 Shadow and BoneI honestly can not wait to get into this read because of the map! It looks like there is a tear in the middle of it. So cool!

Well there you have it! I hope you enjoyed my Top 5 Wednesday this week. If only I could live in these worlds! So much more exciting then the one I live!

      1. Don’t know what I’m waiting for. I own them all – aside from Marie Lu since I didn’t enjoy the Legend-trilogy. Is this one better? – but I have a tbr-mountain made of amazing books. Tough choices every time, mate, tough choices.. xD
        Really want to get to Maas en Raasch soon-ish though.

  3. Maps are the best part of a fantasy genre which promises great world building.They also look a lot like treasure maps.I think the top 3 maps are the best.I haven’t read Snow like Ashes yet but it sure looks like a interesting world to explore. 😀
