Sarah’s Top 5 “Want to Read” Fantasy’s
Heir of Fire (Throne of Glass #3) by Sarah J. Maas
I’ve had this book since December but since I’ve only been reading books for the North Texas Teen Book Festival and my library’s book club I’ve had to put it off. After the ending of Crown of Midnight I’m just dying to know what happens next!
The Exiled Queen/The Gray Wolf Throne/The Crimson Crown (Seven Realms #2-#4) by Cinda Williams Chima
I finally got around to reading the first book last year and really enjoyed it. Sadly other books kept getting in the way of me finishing the series (also the need for a shorter book.lol). After I finish my North Texas reading these will be some of the first books I’ll read.
Snow Like Ashes (Snow Like Ashes #1) by Sara Raasch
I have been wanting to read this book ever since I heard about it, I even got it in from the library last month. But like everything else on the list so far it’s being put on hold until March.
The Bitter Kingdom (Fire and Thorns #3) by Rae Carson
I can’t believe I had put off this series for so long, it is AMAZING!!! I can’t wait to see how it ends!
The Winner’s Crime (Winner’s Trilogy #2) by Marie Rutkoski
Okay, so I know this isn’t out yet but I REALLY want to read it! I just reread the Winner’s Curse and can’t wait to find out what happens to these characters!!!
Christina’s Top 5 “Want To Read” Classic’s
Dracula by Bram Stoker
I love monster stories. I fell in love with Buffy the Vampire Slayer and went from there reading a bunch of YA monster books, and yet I still have not read Dracula. It is quite pathetic of me. So this is the highest on my list for this year.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
I really enjoyed the movie but I could tell that there was so much that was left out. I would like to see the whole story as Dickens told it. I tried reading it once during the week before finals week, I made it 90 pages in before I decided I was an idiot and gave it up.
Mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe
I just want to know what they’re talking about in Northanger Abbey! I’m also interested in gothic literature in general and want more knowledge of it.
Sandition by Jane Austen and Another Lady
A friend of mine said it was good, so I am willing to risk reading a novel only half written by my beloved Miss Jane Austen.
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle
I need to read it. It is shameful that I haven’t yet.
