Top 5 Sundays (5)

Top 5 Sundays is a weekly blog meme hosted by Larissa's Bookish Life.

08/05/12: Super Powers You'd Love to Have for a Day!

What is Top 5 Sundays? Here's how Larissa explains it on her blog:

Every Sunday I will post a TOP 5 list on the blog. It can be about anything and every week I'll have a new theme {You can vote on next week’s theme on my left sidebar!} and I will ad the Mr.Linky below the post so you can do a list with the theme and add you link to it.

1.Write a post listing your TOP 5 choices within the theme I chose (or was chosen on a poll) for the week.
2.Mention this Blog on the post and link back to it.
3.Feel free to use the Feature's image (there is a smaller size version of it below).
4.After you've finished your post, add you link (of the post, not your blog's main page) to the Mr.Linky at the end of that week's post.
5.If you don’t have a blog to post, just leave your list in the comments. =)

For my top 5, I have chosen some of my favorite series to help illustrate some interesting powers that I wouldn't mind having for a day.

1. Elemental Powers
Series: Elemental Assassins by Jennifer Estep
Books Available: Spider's Bite, Web of Lies, Venom, Tangled Threads, Spider's Revenge, By A Thread, and Widow's Web (08/21/12)
Reason: The elemental powers that the author has created as so in depth and creative. Characters use them for every day things, as well as fighting. I may need more than just a day with these powers because I would want to try out every elemental power available.

2. Demon Hunting & Shapeshifting Power
Series: Deadtown by Nancy Holzner
Books Availble: Deadtown, Hellforged, Bloodstone, and Darklands
Reason: This series is a double-whammy of powers that I would love. I would have so much fun shapeshifting, and I would probably shift into multiple animals. I would also enjoy demon hunting, but if I had to choose one it would definitely be shapeshifting.

3. Psychic Powers
Series: Winterhaven by Kristi Cook
Books Availble: Haven and Mirage
Reason: I love all of the different psychic abilities available in this novel. I would definitely want to spend the day using both telekinesis and telepathy. I've always wished I could have powers like that.

4. Oracle Powers
Series: Delphic Oracle by Alayna Williams
Books Available: Dark Oracle and Rogue Oracle
Reason: This series introduced me to many different types of pre-cognition powers that I found very interesting. I've always had a fascination with tarot cards, and this series introduced me to a world beyond them.

5. Lantern Powers
Series: Lantern by Laura Bickle
Books Available: Embers and Sparks
Reason: Although the lantern powers are a bit reminiscent of fire elemental powers, I would definitely love to have these powers for a day, especially if I got a familiar like Sparky to go with them.


  1. Hi Sarah, these top 5's are great!

    I'm hoping you will take a quick read of my story and I am really hoping it might make your next top 5 list.

    Here's an extract:


    My life is hiding, hunting and being hunted.

    I try to ignore the new cramp in my foot as I watch a group of men wander past. This is completely inconsiderate of them, they have no idea how long I have been waiting here – not for men but for food. They should seek death elsewhere.

    I am sure they mean to escape death, not meet him, but I doubt their chances of success.

    With swords drawn and darting gazes the men move as if something is about to jump out and grab them. From the looks of their rough clothing they could easily have run here from some other hardship. I’m in no danger from them, except perhaps of starvation if they keep scaring the wildlife away.

    They stumble downstream not realising that my loaded arrow is aimed at them. Not that I’m planning on shooting one of them but they are food for something and I don’t want to be next. They continue around the corner but I don’t move, just waiting.

    Pain strikes my ears. It feels like it is slicing right through them. The sound forces my body flat to the ground without any thought. Armoured Dragons.

    I roll over, peering through the branches towards the sky.

    Limbs are ripped from nearby trees. Making the ground shake, or that could be the over sized beasts trying to take flight. I can’t exactly see them. Just a flash of black wing or heavy hide plating. And a leg missing its owner.
