Happy Wednesday Booknerdigans!
While the a major quarter of the earth is getting the chilly Christmas vibes, we’re being roasted here in the Pacific! Boy, the temperature’s rising madly each day! This isn’t the normal climate we have at this time of the year but you know, weather disturbances and mother Earth striking back and all. *sigh*
Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the booktuber, Lainey aka gingereadslainey. You can find the topics and the Goodreads page of the book meme here. This week’s topic is unfinished books. Seriously, this list of mine gets longer and longer each time! There’s several factors influencing this fact but let’s save it for another discussion.

1. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell
Rainbow Rowell is considerably one of the best contemporary YA/NA authors. Her Eleanor and Park attests to that. But well, even the best authors flunk at one book or two and I think this is it for Rainbow Rowell.
2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Maybe classics aren’t really for me. I’m doing Popsugar’s 2015 Reading Challenge and this is supposed to be my entry for a classic. It was a nice story, well-deep with messages, but it was a total struggle for me getting through with it.
3. The Pelican Brief by John Grisham
I mentioned before that I was deeply captivated by Grisham’s skills in weaving legal-related stories. This was my testimony to that. However, the primary reason The Pelican Brief was left unfinished is because this year bore several fantastic YA novels. I’m a junkie for such so I had to trade this book for YA novels. Status as of the moment? It’s on top of my TBCR (To be continued reading)
4. 1984 by George Orwell
Okay. Don’t shoot me those judging eyes. This book is good and I know that. There’s just better books that demanded to be read before this. Again, this is on my TBCR.
5. A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin
When I made a post about reading A Song of Fire and Ice series a few months back since, there’s nothing but motivation in me to get through with the books. Oh how freaking hard it is to get immersed! I badly want to read it to witness some unexplained scenes on the TV show. It doesn’t suit my taste YET. Probably because it is unusual from the genre I’m typically into. But hey, congratulate me for devouring at least more than half of the book! What a milestone!
