Top 5 Wendesday


Topic: series to read for the fast approaching new year. 

Article 5 by Kristen Simmons (I’ve had this series for a long while and I need to get around to at least reading the first book already) 

Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson (am so behind on this series that it’s ridiculous. Fingers crossed for next year).  

The Young Elite by Marie Lu(I’ve been wanting to read these for awhile and now I really want to read them before the next book comes out). Ps if I also want to read the Legend series. Heads up.  

The Remnant Chronicles by Mary E. Pearson (again two books I need to read before the last book comes out this coming year).

    Birthright by Gabrielle Zevin (okay all I know about this series is it involve chocolate and coffee. However I collected the books so I need to get to it). 

Unwind by Neal Shusterman (I need to just a really want to read).

Something I really need to do is stop collecting series/trilogies and actual read them. So hopefully come this next year I will finally do it. 

Oct/Nov Wrap Up


Oct. 

Divided in Death in death#18 by J.D. Robb 5/5… See more of works employees as one gets set up for murder. 

Dearest Clementine (dearest#1) by Lex Martin 5/5… So good loved how cute it was. 

Finding Dandelion (dearest#2) by Lex Martin 3/5… It was good just not as good as the first one. 

The Martian by Andy Weir 5/5… Loved it even though all the science jargon went over my head. 

Big Jack  (17.5 in death series)by J.D Robb…4/5 Time to look for some jewels while I couldn’t wait until the bad guy got caught. 

Nov.

The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski 5/5…it’s a roadtrip books with daring to come out of ones comfort zone.

Wings (wings#1) by Aprilynne Pike 3/5… Was a so so read however will be continuing on. 

Vision in Death (in death#19) by J.D.Robb 5/5… We got a physic who is not exactly up to any good.

Doon (doon#1) by Carey Corp & Lorie Langdon 5/5…this book took me by surprise and happy that I started it. 

Survivor in Death (in death#20) by J.D. Robb 5/5…it was so cute to see Roarke and Eve reacting to having a little girl stay at the house with them.

Soulless (the parasol protectorate manga #1) by Gail Carriger 4/5…been trying to read the book form couldn’t and so I decide to go for the manga and enjoyed it. 

Grey by El James 4/5…what is there to say it was 50s Shades of Grey in Christen’s point of view. I hope El James continues with these because I want his prospective from the third book.

So this is my last two month sorry about the lateness I have been a little off. Hopefully I’ll get better in the coming month and into the next year.
