Hello bookworms! I’m Nia and today I’m going to be talking about my favorite fantasy or sci-fi creatures.
Okay, this is one of my favorite topics, because I love fantasy and mythological creatures, and they are part of the reason why I decide to read a book in the first place.
If you aren’t familiar with Top 5 Wednesday, it is a Goodeads group now currently run by Sam over at ToughtsOfTomes on Youtube, where each week they give you a topic and you talk about 5 books that fit that category. You can join the group here if you want to participate!
Without any further ado, let’s start with this week’s topic!

I cannot help but get a bit more excited when I know a book has dragons in it. They are just so cool and interesting creatures, and I feel there is a wide variety of them and how they are created, so it’s always super interesting to read a book about them because there’s always something new.
I have to say that I haven’t come across many unicorns in fantasy, but I just adore those creatures. They are just so pure and kind and I love what they represent, and I think a book with unicorns in them would be very interesting to read.
Okay, I admit it: I’m a sucker for anything with either mermaids or sirens in it. They are probably my favorite magical/mythological creatures, and even though there are only a couple of books about them that I can say that I’m still on the hunt for more books about sirens.
To be honest, the main reason why I love hippogriffs that much would have to be Buckpeak from Harry Potter, and even though he’s a very important focus on one of the films and books only, I still love him so much.

Okay, I don’t know if this technically counts because they aren’t exactly creatures, but I still wanted to mention them because I love me a good witchy book. I have to say that most of the books I’ve read about witches haven’t been my cup of tea, but I’m not giving up, and I’m going to find a perfect witchy book for me.
What are your favorite magical creatures? Do you have any of these ones I’ve mentioned in your list as well? Let me know in the comments!
