Top 5 Wednesday: June 27, 2018

Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme created by GingerReadsLainey and managed by Sam from Thoughts on Tomes on Goodreads. Each week features a new prompt in which you are suppose to talk about the top 5 books that you relate to the prompt. This week the topic is: Books You Want to Read Before the End of the Year —Halfway through the year, and it’s time to evaluate our reading goals and take a look at our TBRs for the second half of the year!

So, without further adieu, I present my contribution to this week’s top five conversation.

37946456Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3) by Kerri Maniscalco

Publisher: JIMMY Patterson (September 18, 2018)

Print Length: 416 pages

One of my most anticipated releases for the second half of 2018, Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3) by Kerri Maniscalco is one of those books I hope, no, know I will read by the end of 2018. My only apprehension in reading this when it is released is that I will have to wait until sometime in 2019 for the concluding novel.

35068588In Another Time by Caroline Leech

Publisher: HarperTeen (August 28, 2018)

Print Length: 384 pages

Another of my most anticipated releases for the later half of 2018, In Another Time is set for release at the tail end of August. As with Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3), I’m sure I will have no problem getting to In Another Time before the year is over and that is why it made top five books I want to read before the end of the year.

22571706Les Misérables by Victor Hugo

Publisher: Penguin Classics (February 24, 2015

Print Length: 1456 pages

I have had this copy of Les Misérables sitting on my unread shelf for too long now. As you can probably guess, the one reason I haven’t read it already is due to its 1400 plus page count. Alas, as I think summer is the perfect season to read long books, I hope to have this one finished no later than August. Wish me luck.

18300262Mansfield Park by Jane Austen

Publisher: Vintage Classics (October 1, 2014)

Print Length: 644 pages

As the only Austen novel I haven’t read, Mansfield Park has been taunting me from my unread shelf for ages now. As with Les Misérables, I can confidently say the reason I haven’t read it is because of its 600 plus page count. Because I hope to tackle Les Misérables during the summer, I may just keep this one for the winter months, hopefully finishing it before 2018 comes to a close.

36358268The Mermaid by Christina Henry

Publisher: Berkley (June 19, 2018)

Print Length: 336 pages

I have a plan to save The Mermaid by Christina Henry for my last book of 2108 read because my reading year opened on an amazing front with her novel Lost Boy: The True Story of Captain Hook. If all goes smoothly I’ll actually remember that this is my plan for this novel, and not devour it. I’ll keep you posted.
