Top 5 Saturday: Books Set in the Forest

Top 5 Saturday is run by Amanda @ Devouring Books. Every week showcases 5 books that share a common theme. This week’s theme is Books Set in the Forest.

So, this actually takes place in the Jungle City, the capital of the world this series is set in. I did have a bit of a hard time envisioning it, but, whenever I think of it, I think of a city set into a jungle.

    1. Thank you! I absolutely agree. Forest settings are incredible, especially when it comes to fantasy. There are so many things authors can do with it.
