Top 5 Thursday is a new series of posts I will be starting on my blog. Every Thursday I’ll have a list of five bookish related things to share with you all! I hope you enjoy this series and feel free to join if you would like. 🙂
This Thursday’s topic is Top 5 Books I Want to Read Before 2016. Believe it or not, this year is coming to an end meaning we all have to rush to finish up the books we wanted to read at the beginning of 2015! Here is my list:
- City of Bones by Cassandra Clare: I always hear about how amazing The Mortal Instruments series is, but I have never even thought about reading it (I know, I know, you’re all gasping in shock). But I am a book blogger/reviewer so I feel I absolutely need to read this series so I can finally join in on the discussion! This series is also becoming a TV show called The Shadowhunters in early 2016 so I need to read at least the first book before then!
- Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: Yet another super popular book series I have not read! I have heard nothing but amazing things about this series and its spin-off series Bloodlines, so I can’t wait to pick it up next month. Plus, I loooove vampire books so hopefully this book won’t disappoint.
- Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard: The hype before the release of Red Queen was HUGE, but then the actual book came out and a lot of people hated it. I have owned this book since the day it came out, but I still have yet to read it. Even though I’m not super excited to read this book, it’s been on my shelf forever and I want to get it off my TBR pile!
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr: This is one of the biggest books of the year and everyone I know who has read it has absolutely adored it. I struggle with finding motivation to pick up historical fiction, but when I do I usually really enjoy it. The hype around this book is a little intimidating but I hope I will find the motivation to finally read this book.
- The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak: I have owned The Book Thief for probably five years and I still haven’t read it… I have no idea why!! I know this book is a modern classic of sorts which makes me want to read it even more. I’ll definitely let you guys know what I think.
What books do you want to read before this year is over? Have you read any of the books on my list?
