Bout of Books Update #2 and Challenge

I'm loving Bout of Books Read-a-thon! I haven't gotten to read as much as I like but I'm pretty close to my goals. I'm also loving the twitter interactions and challenges. Today's challenge is hosted by Musings of a Bookshop Girl and all I have to do is answer these questions!

1. Which 5 books are at the top of your TBR pile at this moment?

28900901.I have been waiting on the next book in this series for yearsssssss! I'm still waiting and it is #1 on my TBR list (mostly because I've been waiting for years...)

118700852.Thre is so much hype regarding this book and I've only heard good things. I finally broke down and bought a hardback copy and it's the next book I'm going to read.

161607973.  J.K. Rowling's newest book. I'm interested in seeing a different side of Jo from Harry Potter and The Casual Vacancy.



Doctor Sleep4.  Stephen King's new book comes out at the end of September and I'm a huge King fan so I can't wait. Plus, it's the sequel to The Shining! Fangirling a little over here...
 119255145.  I have heard so much about this book and I can't wait to read it. Plus, I believe it's set around WWII which is one of my favorite time periods to read about!         2. If I gave you a wad of cash and sent you into a bookshop right now, which 5 books would you buy to add to the stack?
So this may be cheating, but I'd buy The Outlander series (and I'd expand it to 1-7). This is my favorite series but I've read all of the books on e-book. I would like to own them all one day and until I read them again, I'm not going to let myself buy them. That wad of cash would give me a good excuse!

Outlander (Outlander, #1)Dragonfly in Amber (Outland...Voyager (Outlander, #3)Drums of Autumn (Outlander,...The Fiery Cross (Outlander,...A Breath of Snow and Ashes ...An Echo in the Bone (Outlan...

  1. Good answers! I've got The Fault in Our Stars on my TBR pile already, and I LOVE THAT COVER for the not-J.K.Rowling-but-it-totally-is book too. The one I've seen is way more boring! I actually found The Shining last week, stashed away in a box in the bookshop office where Mum never looks. I'd hidden it there ages ago so I could read it before it went on the shelves, haha! THEN I'll read the follow-up. :)

    Thanks for entering, and good luck! I had a terrible day of pain yesterday but I'm hoping to read and verify most of the challenge entries today so I can get the winner drawn!

    1. Thanks! I really enjoyed this challenge and I hope you finally get to enjoy The Shining!
