Time for another Top 5 Wednesday. Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey from gingerreadslainey and is now hosted by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes and if you would like to join, here is the link for the Goodreads group with all the information.
This week’s topic is Books You Want to Read Before the End of the Year and I’m really excited to share some of the books I desperately need to knock off my TBR. Most of these are also part of an old T5W whose topic was Series I Want to Start Next Year (next year being 2016) as well as some new releases that I haven’t had the time to get to yet.
SO let’s get started!
#5: The Rose and the Dagger
by Renee Ahdieh
I can’t believe I haven’t read this yet! I read The Wrath and the Dawn earlier this year before this book came out and I loved it so much! I was obsessed with everything about it and that ending just broke my heart but I just don’t know why I haven’t read the sequel. It came out in May people! I need to get on this ASAP.
#4: Return to the Dark House
by Laurie Faria Stolarz
Another duology that really needs finishing but this one is a lot more dire. Laurie is one of my favorite authors and I loved the first installment of this duology even though I’m not a fan of horror. And this second book came out last year and yet I still have not read it! Part of it is because I’m terrified of what will happen but I will be brave!
#3: The Naturals
by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
I’ve talked about how much of a fan I am of contemporary thrillers and after reading The Fixer books, I want to check out more of her books in this genre. I also saw on Twitter that both series have a bit of a connection somewhere and I’m dying to know what it is!
#2: Sea of Shadows
by Kelley Armstrong
I’ve always said that Kelley Armstrong is one of my favorite authors and yet I’ve only ever read two of her YA series which were companions. And I’ve been meaning to read more of her books for the longest time because she has a crap load of them you guys. So this year I really want to start this YA trilogy which is complete and I really hope I enjoy it.
by Maggie Stiefvater
I’ve been reading books by Maggie Stiefvater since June and I’ve completely fallen in love with her writing style again. This is the first series that I ever read, I own the first two books but I really want to re-read and and finish this series. I’ve heard so many mixed reviews but I remember completely loving the writing and the story. So I hope to read this soon!
So that’s it for this post! What are some books you want to read before this year ends? I feel like this list could be endless but these are some of my top priorities. Let me know what you think of my choices. Thanks so much for reading and I’ll see you on my next post!
