Hello again! It’s Tuesday, and of course that means it’s time for a Top 5 post. Top 5 Tuesdays and their topics are brought to you by Shanah @ the Bionic Bookworm. Check out her blog, she’s awesome, and this page for the list of topics for April!
I’m sure I could make a much longer list than five of popular books I haven’t read yet. But I’ll do my best to stick to just five. There are so many books that I need to read and I’m hoping I’ll get around to reading these five this year.
I really enjoy reading mysteries and I always hear such good things about this particular series. My mom read them and really liked them and she’s a huge mystery-genre reader. So I know that I really need to step on it and read these books already!
I really enjoyed the Percy Jackson series, but for some reason I haven’t yet gotten around to reading Riordan’s Kane Chronicles series. I mean, I love Egyptian mythology, which is what this series focuses on, so I can’t believe I haven’t picked up these books yet!
Like many, I enjoy anything Sherlock Holmes related. When I came across this series that involves the “great-great-great granddaughter” of that famous detective, I knew I had to read it. A friend of mine has read some and really enjoys them. She’s recommended books to me before and I usually enjoy them too, so I have a good feeling about this series.
This is not the first time I’ve written about this series on this blog. Yes, I definitely need to read it! I hear such rave things about it, that I really need to see what all the fuss is about! I mean, science fiction, space, a little romance…what’s not to love! Books written by two authors always intrigue me, so I’m curious to see how well this series works out.
Aside from this book sounding really compelling, I’ve heard such good things about Ahdieh. If her writing is as good as people say, than I hope to really enjoy this series. I have loose plans to read it this year, since I’m participating in the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge. I think this one would be a nice choice.
Thoughts & Thanks!
What are some series you’re looking to read? Perhaps some of them have made it onto this list. Let’s chat about it in the comments! Let me know if you liked (or disliked!) any of the books I’ve mentioned here. I’d love to know what you think about them.
Thank you for reading this post. And, as always, happy reading!
