Saturday Top 5: Books You Have to Read By The End of the Year
This Top 5 series started back in October and I kind of lost motivation for making it every week. But it’s back! This is a series of books that I want to read that all have a common theme. Previously on the blog I have focused on witches, werewolves, thrillers, faeries, fairy tale retellings and high fantasy. I am going to try and bring this series back for every Saturday.
The upcoming schedule is:
11/2/19 — Indie Books 11/9/19 — Books with a Survival The 11/16/19 — Books by Unread Authors You Want to Read 11/23/19 — Books with Fake Love Couples—yeah… I’ll be doing something anti-holiday next week lol– combine two triggers in one week and kaboom lol
11/30/19 — Books to be read by the end of the year
I’m a bit out of the loop but I’m guessing that exciting things are coming in December!
- Share your top 5 books of the current topic– these can be books that you want to read, have read and loved, have read and hated, you can do it any way you want.

Saturday Top 5: Books I Have To Read By The End Of The Year
Let’s try that again… but with a little honesty. Because the last month of the year will be filled with jump starting January ARC’s
Saturday Top 4
5: Books I Have To Read By The End Of The Year Books I Should Have Read This Year But Didn’t Get To…
Because. Of Course. Buying Nevernight wasn’t enough. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
2) HEY! This one is now in my greedy little hands kids…
And look. Here’s the thing. I’ll take the blame for misjudging it. But you can’t say I don’t listen. I heard you. Loud and clear. When the words goth and dark started popping up in reviews across my timeline? I perked quicker than The Tox…. I might have been slow. But I got there.
3) The Thirteenth Tale- Diane Setterfield
Man someone protect me from Becky because she’s gonna have my damn head. Twice I’ve prioritized this book in the course of this year and twice now I haven’t gotten to it.
<Me running and hiding>…
4) The Devil’s Aspect By Craig Russell
Oh let’s see now. It has been on a Goodreads Monday post AND a Stack the Shelves post. And yet I STILL HAVEN’T READ IT. EXPLAIN THAT TO ME!
And there you have it!
What books are you going to regret not getting to this year? And don’t lie… you know you are going to have some! We all will… spill the tea!

Oh my god! I loved House of Salt and Sorrows!! So dark and magical at the same time!! It was a favorite of mine, especially since it’s a retelling of the 12 dancing princessess.
I know! You are part of the reason I ended up buying it… book twin
… and like most retellings.. I dont know that reference
The 12 Dancing Princesses is one of my favorite tales. It’s only like a 2 page tale, so you can find it online if you want. The House of Salt and Sorrows followed the tale pretty closely, and then added a few details of course. It’s one of my favorite dark fairy tales, so I was happy to find a retelling.
So far I’m happy being Captain America lol. I’m about to start Scavenge the Stars and know nothing about the Count of Monte Crisco except there is a sandwich of the same name lol. But I may go back after since it is only two pages!
Hahaha love this! I’m with you on the ARC reading this month, I might have already signed up to 4 blog tours for January ????. But I have just started We Hunt the Flame so that’s at least one off my TBR.
January was the last month I stuffed full of Arcs before my conscientious choice to slow down.
I loved 13th tale, not as much as the other two by the author but there are a couple of things about readers and reading and stories that sweeps one away!!
HOUSE OF SALT AND SORROWS *Chants*
And I still need to read Aurora Rising lolol
You and me both… and now … have you seen Aurora Burning? That son of a….
