My Very Own “Book Bucket List” – September 2017

Posted on Updated on

I’ve knocked the 4th entry off my Book Bucket List:  ‘Carnegie’s Maid’ by Marie Benedict. You can see the review here. In its place, I’ve added Didi Oviatt’s ‘Search for Maylee’ to round out the 12 options for the next vote (post with poll to VOTE will be released next week).



The book you chose for me to read in September is Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (review to be posted by 10/23) and to read in October is A Court of Thorns and Roses (review to be posted by 11/7). Congratulations to everyone who voted for these books. The poll to vote for the November book I should read will be opened next week.



Below is the link to the on-going Book Bucket List and a background on what it’s all about. Click the link to access everything since the beginning of this post series.

My Very Own “Book Bucket List”


About Me
I’m Jay, an author who lives in NYC. My debut novel, Watching Glass Shatter, can be purchased on Amazon @  I am writing my second novel, Father Figure, with plans to publish it in early 2018. As part of the process to engage with my fans and followers, I am publishing a weekly status on the progress of this second book. For a description of this book, check out the post where my friends and followers voted for this book as my second novel.

Beyond these two books, I have a number of short stories, poems and other novels in various shapes and forms. I also read A LOT. First the book review goes on Goodreads, and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at, where you’ll also find TV & Film reviews, Tags, Awards, Age/Genre/Book Reads and Author Spotlights, as well as the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge.

You can also access my social media profiles to get the details on the who/what/when/where and my pictures. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Vote in the poll and ratings. Thanks for stopping by. Note: All written content is my original creation and copyrighted to me, but the graphics and images were linked from other sites and belong to them. Many thanks to their original creators.

    I like this idea 😊 I’ve never made a bucket list of any sort but a book one seems like the best kind!

      Exactly! Books are fun, so it makes the ‘concept’ easier. 🙂

    Loved Six of Crows; are you planning on squeezing in Crooked Kingdom as well?

    When it comes to ACOTAR, I did like the sequel better. But in the end they’re all gorgeous. Hope you enjoy them! 🙂

      Too early to tell on Crooked Kingdom. Only a third through first in series. I hope tho! Thanks.

    I just bought the whole series of ACOTAR as I’ve heard so much about them, and missed them when they first came out – I just had to find out what they were like – not started them yet though!

    I haven’t read either yet, though I know they’re both very popular. Hope they don’t disappoint!
