So since this is my catch-up year where I’ve been spending most of my reading time reading books that are already out and completed I have to tweak this week’s Top Five Wednesday by Gingerreadslainey in order to participate. My tweak is that these will be books that are sequels to books I plan to read soon. For example, I already own the first book, and the sequel is due soon. I also made sure to keep this to series I definitely plan to start this year.
The Fractured Light by Amie Kaufman and Meahan Spooner – This is my #1 pick because the series comes back full circle and I love when authors do that. I was disappointed the Diana Peterfreund didn’t with hers, but Stephanie Perkins was champ! (Okay I am no longer allowed to say “champ” lol)
Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray – Multiverses, enough said. ALSO gorgeous cover alert!
Ice Like Fire by Sara Raasch – I pre-ordered the first in this trilogy because the premise was so promising and I’ll blame a bit on the hype as well. Every time I pick up Snow Like Ashes and read the blurb I always make the decision to read it soon.
Ashes in the Sky by Jennifer M. Eaton – Oh man I was so excited about this when Lainey was promoting it that I pre-ordered the same day. I am ashamed I haven’t started the first book yet but it’s on my list to read before the end of the year. Soon, my pretty.
The Revolution of Ivy by Amy Engel – This is kind of a toss up between Winter by Marissa Meyer and itself. And I chose the lesser known, but I wanted to pick something different. Too much fantasy and I get bored quick. That is not to say Winter shouldn’t be on this list, because I will definitely be wrapping up that series this year with everyone else.
—Funny how many of these books’ covers will be up for favorite cover of the year. Well I think it’s funny anyhow.—
