Top 5 Wednesday is a group in Goodreads and was formerly created by Lainey at gingerreadslainey and is now done by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes. It is open to everyone.

City of Saints and Thieves by Natalie C. Anderson

This was a Hype or Like Book, and I was very excited that this book was picked, but then reality set in and I got extremely busy and kinda forgot to read it, but I really hope to read this book.

When Dimple met Rishi by Sandhya Manon

While YA contemporary isn’t a genre I usually gravitate towards to, but this book seems like a nice cute romance story, which I am starting to take an appreciation for.

Before She Ignites by Jodi Meadows

I remember being excited about the cover, and I am usually not a cover person. I really wanted to read it before the end of the year, but than Christmas was happening and I had finals and shopping to deal, so I didn’t have time to read it.

Rebel Seoul by Axie Oh

This is a book I really wanted to read. I put it on reserve at the library picked it up, but never got around to reading it, so much that I had to return it, and I couldn’t renew it because it was on a waiting list. So hopefully I will try to read it again.

A Conjuring of Light by VE Schwab

I’ll be honest, I am almost scared to read this book. Mainly because after reading Our Dark Duet and being emotionally devastated by it, I am almost scared of what will happen, I love these characters so much. and I really want to see how it ends.

Those are the books I missed out in 2017. What books did you miss out in 2017? Let me know in the comments below.

December 1st – Coming to a Close… What book(s) do you hope to read before the end of the year?

A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab

Earlier this year I read the first two books of this series, A Darker Shade of Magic and A Gathering of Darkness and loved them both. She is one of my new auto-buy authors and I can’t wait to read how this series ends.

Dear Martin by Nic Stone

After reading The Hate U Give, I was recommended this book. It sort of deals with same issues of race in America. I also met the author Nic Stone at Boston Book Festival this year and I was meaning to buy the book there, but it was sold out.

Hunting Prince Dracula by: Kerri Maniscalo

A few months ago I read Stalking Jack the Ripper and loved it. So of course I was excited to find out about a sequel and it deals with Dracula which makes me even more excited to read it.

Before She Ignites by: Jodi Meadows

That COVER! and the premise, but mainly that cover. I am of course a sucker for good fantasy. I also heard great things about this book and I hope I could read before the end of the year.

Hunted by: Megan Spooner

A Fairy Tale retelling of Beauty and the Beast with hunting. Sold. As most of you should know I love fairy tale retellings. I heard some great things about this book and I really hope to read this by the end of the year.

Those are the books I hope to read before the end of the year. What books do you hope to read before the end of the year. Let me know in the comments.
