I can’t believe October is already here! This year flew by! We only have three months left of the year, that’s about 12 weeks of reading left to accomplish my Goodreads 2016 Reading Challenge! I’m ten books behind guys! My goal was to read 30 this year and I’ve only finished 12, I mean, that’s pretty impressive with the schedule I have.
I’ve decided I’m going to try and finish at least five books but I’m going to shoot for the following six. Nanowrimo is coming up next month and I really want to finish my own novel, so we’ll see what happens. There were a few months where I slacked off reading, I just couldn’t get into any of the books I had.
What books are you trying to finish before the year is up? How are you doing on your Goodreads Challenge? Add me on Goodreads so we can follow each other’s challenge progress and stay up to date on what we’re reading!
Blue Lily, Lily Blue
There is danger in dreaming. But there is even more danger in waking up.
Blue Sargent has found things. For the first time in her life, she has friends she can trust, a group to which she can belong. The Raven Boys have taken her in as one of their own. Their problems have become hers, and her problems have become theirs.
The trick with found things though, is how easily they can be lost.
Friends can betray.
Mothers can disappear.
Visions can mislead.
Certainties can unravel.
I’m currently reading this one and I can honestly say that it’s my favorite one in the series so far. I’m supposed to be going to Books on the Banks this month and plan on getting Maggie to sign my Shivers series, and I’d like to have this series finished just in case she asks if I read/enjoyed it!
The Raven King
Nothing living is safe. Nothing dead is to be trusted.
For years, Gansey has been on a quest to find a lost king. One by one, he’s drawn others into this quest: Ronan, who steals from dreams; Adam, whose life is no longer his own; Noah, whose life is no longer a lie; and Blue, who loves Gansey… and is certain she is destined to kill him.
Now the endgame has begun. Dreams and nightmares are converging. Love and loss are inseparable. And the quest refuses to be pinned to a path.
Again, trying to finish these last two books in the series before I see Maggie again! Hoping this series ends better than a sad ending since we know one of the boys is going to die!
The Walking Dead Book 5
I started this one a few months ago, but honestly, I’m finding it hard to finish the comics when I’ve already seen the show. I do that with all books, which is why I still have never read Harry Potter.
Outcast Volume 1
NEW HORROR SERIES FROM THE WALKING DEAD CREATOR ROBERT KIRKMAN! Kyle Barnes has been plagued by demonic possession all his life and now he needs answers. Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it. Collects OUTCAST BY KIRKMAN & AZACETA #1-6.
My husband got me this for my birthday last month, so I figured it would make a good Halloween read! Can’t wait to see if I enjoy this comic series! Has anyone else read it?
Doomed to – or blessed with – eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.
This is one of those books where I watched the movie first and I loved the movie! Figured this would make a good cozy winter read. I’m trying to read a hand full of ‘classics’ every year now and this might be the perfect one. And holy crap, I didn’t realize how young the main character was supposed to be!
Bookishly Ever After
In a perfect world, sixteen-year-old Phoebe Martins’ life would be a book. Preferably a YA novel with magic and a hot paranormal love interest. Unfortunately, her life probably wouldn’t even qualify for a quiet contemporary.
But when Phoebe finds out that Dev, the hottest guy in the clarinet section, might actually have a crush on her, she turns to her favorite books for advice. Phoebe overhauls her personality to become as awesome as her favorite heroines and win Dev’s heart. But if her plan fails, can she go back to her happy world of fictional boys after falling for the real thing?
I already started this one, but so far it’s not as good as I thought it would be. This will probably be a book I choose to read after The Raven Boys series, just to relax and enjoy a good Contemporary YA.
