Delitealex | 26 comments I'll probably end up changing some when its time comes to read them. I hope to fit in many of my unread kindle books.

Zaz | 3034 comments Welcome :)

I'll probably read Monster Hunter too, if I'm not too much busy (the other option is shorter). I'm curious about The Missing Ink and the Disenchanted & Co. series.
I liked Divergent, I hope you'll enjoy it too (the sequels were less interesting). Blameless was better than Changeless, I'll probably finish the series at the beginning of the year.

Delitealex | 26 comments I don't know about #44 because I'm not embarrassed to read anything in public.


message 5: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 26 comments Suggestions are definitely wecome. I have enjoyed looking at others lists.

Manda (bookwenchmanda) | 1094 comments You've got a great list coming together. You have books on there that I want to add to mine, but I'm afraid I might have already overextended myself for 2016. We'll see though.

I'm like you for week 44. There is not a whole that I am embarrassed to read in public, except for maybe children's books. I went with The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty Beauty's Punishment and Beauty's Release. I picked this series because people don't take Anne Rice serious for this series. I hear it's supposed to be a better version of Fifty Shades of Grey.

For week 7 I highly recommend The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry and What If?: Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions for week 14.

I read The Storied Life for the 2015 challenge, and have What If? on my challenge list for this year. It seems like a book that I will slowly read all year long; just small chunks at a time.

Delitealex | 26 comments Thanks for the recommendations I have already read Beauty series 1-3 I haven't read Book 4 which came out this year Beauty's Kingdom

I have been wanting to read your recs for weeks 7 and 14.

Manda (bookwenchmanda) | 1094 comments Awesome! How did you like the Claiming of Sleeping Beauty series? I love Rice's Vampire series, but hated what little I tried to read of FSOG. It might not be fair to compare Rice to James, but I don't have much confidence in the genre.


message 9: by Delitealex (new)

Delitealex | 26 comments I really enjoyed the claiming of sleeping beauty series Its pretty different from her other books it is pretty graphic sex wise. I also love her vampire series I still have a few to go back and read. As for FSOG I don't plan to read it.


message 10: by Manda (new)

Manda (bookwenchmanda) | 1094 comments I feel better about the Sleeping beauty series now. I'm okay with it being different for her, and the graphic sex, I was just worried it would be like the child-like crap of FSOG.

I gave up on FSOG by page 11. The writing was just so terrible that I could not bring myself to read another word. I don't understand how it has done so well, except for the taboo-hype of it.

Delitealex | 26 comments Read 1222 for #2 set in Europe Norway
