5 Books I want to read before end of the year

November is always the busiest month of the year. So many things need to wrap up and finished before December comes. I am still way behind on my reading goals for this year. I am happy that I still continue reading even though sometimes I feel like I want to sleep and not wake up. I like stories and I love memory keeping, the two activities that help me during my darkest time. I am glad that this year I discovered a lot of great books that has been sitting on my ebook shelf waiting for me to read. 



1. PINES by Blake Crouch
I like his book Dark Matter and I wanted to read Wayward Pines series. I have watch the TV series on hulu and I really enjoyed.

"Secret service agent Ethan Burke arrives in Wayward Pines, Idaho, with a clear mission: locate and recover two federal agents who went missing in the bucolic town one month earlier. But within minutes of his arrival, Ethan is involved in a violent accident. He comes to in a hospital, with no ID, no cell phone, and no briefcase. The medical staff seems friendly enough, but something feels…off. As the days pass, Ethan’s investigation into the disappearance of his colleagues turns up more questions than answers. Why can’t he get any phone calls through to his wife and son in the outside world? Why doesn’t anyone believe he is who he says he is? And what is the purpose of the electrified fences surrounding the town? Are they meant to keep the residents in? Or something else out? Each step closer to the truth takes Ethan further from the world he thought he knew, from the man he thought he was, until he must face a horrifying fact—he may never get out of Wayward Pines alive." excerpt from

2. Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King
This is definitely one huge book. I am not sure if I will be picking up this book in November but I really want to read it. 

"In a future so real and near it might be now, something happens when women go to sleep: they become shrouded in a cocoon-like gauze. If they are awakened, if the gauze wrapping their bodies is disturbed or violated, the women become feral and spectacularly violent. And while they sleep they go to another place, a better place, where harmony prevails and conflict is rare.

One woman, the mysterious “Eve Black,” is immune to the blessing or curse of the sleeping disease. Is Eve a medical anomaly to be studied? Or is she a demon who must be slain? Abandoned, left to their increasingly primal urges, the men divide into warring factions, some wanting to kill Eve, some to save her. Others exploit the chaos to wreak their own vengeance on new enemies. All turn to violence in a suddenly all-male world" excerpt from

3. The Good Daughter by Karin Slaughter
I am a fan of Karin Slaughter book. I basically will read most of her book. I wanted to read this book for the longest time but somehow I just didn't get to it yet.

"Two girls are forced into the woods at gunpoint. One runs for her life. One is left behind…Twenty-eight years ago, Charlotte and Samantha Quinn's happy small-town family life was torn apart by a terrifying attack on their family home. It left their mother dead. It left their father — Pikeville's notorious defense attorney — devastated. And it left the family fractured beyond repair, consumed by secrets from that terrible night" excerpt from

4. Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough
I am definitely a sucker for psychological thriller. I hear a lot of good things about this book. I can't wait to read it.

"Louise is a single mom, a secretary, stuck in a modern-day rut. On a rare night out, she meets a man in a bar and sparks fly. Though he leaves after they kiss, she’s thrilled she finally connected with someone.
When Louise arrives at work on Monday, she meets her new boss, David. The man from the bar. The very married man from the bar…who says the kiss was a terrible mistake, but who still can’t keep his eyes off Louise.
And then Louise bumps into Adele, who’s new to town and in need of a friend. But she also just happens to be married to David. And if you think you know where this story is going, think again, because Behind Her Eyes is like no other book you’ve read before.
David and Adele look like the picture-perfect husband and wife. But then why is David so controlling? And why is Adele so scared of him?" excerpt from

5. Beyond Limits by Laura Giffin
I have not read any books by Laura Giffin. I decided to give this book a try just because I love detective book. This book is a number 8 in Tracers series. I am hoping that I can follow the stories without reading the first 7 books in this series.

"FBI agent Elizabeth LeBlanc is still caught in the aftermath of her last big case when she runs into the one man from her past who is sure to rock her equilibrium even more. Navy SEAL Derek Vaughn is back home from a harrowing rescue mission in which he found evidence of a secret terror cell on US soil. Elizabeth knows he’ll do anything to unravel the plot—including seducing her for information. And despite the risks involved, she’s tempted to let him. Together with the forensics experts at the Delphi Center, Derek and Elizabeth are closing in on the truth, but it may not be fast enough to avert a devastating attack" excerpt from

I am currently reading PINES and THE SHARK by Mary Burton (Forgotten Files Series). I am almost finished and I can't wait to start reading the book in this lists.
