Top Five Circus or Theme Park Settings

This Top 5 series is a weekly meme created by Amanda @ Devouring Books. Although this post is inspired by Devouring Books, this prompt is of my own devising and not officially one of Amanda’s suggestions.

Each week I’ll pick 5 books featuring the common theme provided. These might be books I’ve read, or ones that are still on my TBR. I’ll note [TBR] beside any I’ve not actually read myself. 

These books are all ‘Top’ in that they were, or look, great. My memory’s not good enough to guarantee they’re the literal top books I’ve read in the category. So feel free to share your own favourites or give me more TBR suggestions in the comments.

As always, in no particular order…

Pantomime (Micah Grey #1) by Laura Lam

The Kingdom by Jess Rothenberg

Circus of Wonders by Elizabeth Macneal [TBR]

Freya (Freya #1) by Matthew Laurence

Show Stopper (Show Stopper #1) by Hayley Barker [TBR]

  1. The Kingdom is still high on my TBR list! I hope I can get to that one soon.

    I started reading the Kingdom Keepers series by Ridley Pearson, though I didn’t get very far in. I liked the concept, though, and the setting definitely fits this prompt! (They are all set in Disney properties as far as I can tellβ€”the early ones are definitely in Walt Disney World, though I think they take a Disney Cruise later in the series.)

    1. I think I’ve seen an Epcot one doing the rounds? The Disneyness tempts (because… Disney. Duh) but I don’t know if those might just be a step too far for me?


      1. The Kingdom Keepers books that I read (at least the first one, maybe one and two?) were definitely aimed at a young audience. I had no interest in continuing with the series, and I’m a certified Disney fan. πŸ˜‰ They’re worth a shot if you’re tempted and you know what age range you’re getting into… but definitely expect more MG than YA in tone. (I had expected YA, so was disappointed.)
