Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling
Harry Potter is due to start his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. His best friends Ron and Hermione have been very secretive all summer and he is desperate to get back to school and find out what has been going on. However, what Harry discovers is far more devastating than he could ever have expected…
Yeah I’m just now reading this for the first time. I’m gonna give the audiobook a chance and hopefully that’ll help me get through this book faster.

Midnight Whispers by VC Andrews
HAPPY AND INNOCENT, DAWN’S DAUGHTER CHRISTIE HAS GROWN UP IN THE SAFEST, MOST LOVING OF HOMES …
Yet Christie can’t help feeling as if a dark cloud hovers over Cutler’s Cove … a cloud whose origins lie in her family’s troubled history, and the many questions no one, not even Dawn, will answer. Only one person can always chase away her blues: Gavin, Daddy Jimmy’s young and handsome stepbrother.
Then, in one harsh night, Christie’s world is changed forever. She is shocked to discover her Uncle Philip’s unbrotherly love for her mother, but even worse is the way he now looks at Christie, his eyes bright with tortured passion. Fleeing to New York City, she finds her real father, a pathetic, helpless has-been. Desperate and heartbroken, she turns to Gavin, who travels with her to The Meadows, the plantation where Christie was born. In Gavin’s arms, in the first, tender moments of true love, Christie finds a refuge from her painful memories. But The Meadows is blighted by its own dark secrets — and all too soon Christie is torn from Gavin’s embrace. Now as black storms of evil gather around her, Christie must struggle to break the cruel bonds of the past … to defy the curse that has haunted Cutler’s Cove for generations …
Darkest Hour by VC Andrews
Growing up on the thriving plantation called The Meadows, Lillian Booth cherishes the brightest, happiest dreams….
Lillian’s world is full of grand parties, of sunshine and promises, as thrilling as the fairy tales Mama spins for her and her little sister, Eugenia. No one, not even her cold, stern Papa and her Bible spouting sister Emily, can crush her spirits — until the day Emily reveals the shattering secret at Lillian’s birth, a secret Mama sadly cannot deny. Still Lillian refuses to believe Emily’s hateful claim that she is evil, a curse…even when sweet, gentle Eugenia loses her fragile hold on life, and Mama retreats further into her fantasies.
But when tragedy befalls her best friend, the one boy whose tender heart mirrors her own, Lillian comes to believe Emily’s grim words. Meekly, she endures her penance, finding a strange solace in the endless repetition of prayers in a room stripped of all comforts. Lillian’s heart is torn anew when, in a drunken haze, Papa subjects her to the most brutal degradation. Then Papa loses The Meadows in a card game, and Lillian is faced with a new and terrifying prospect. Arrogant, handsome playboy Bill Cutler will return the plantation — if Lillian will marry him! Now Lillian must leave her girlhood home behind, and make a bold new beginning as the mistress of a hotel called Cutler’s Cove…
These two books were much better than the first 3 in the series. Kind of made me remember why I fell in love with VC Andrews in the first place.
What do you think you’ll read next?
I don’t know.. It really depends on how long Order of the Phoenix takes me to get through.
I finally made an Instagram. I don’t actually have the app yet – my phone doesn’t support it 😦 – so I don’t have any original posts on there right now but if you’ve got a lot of bookish posts feel free to follow me and I’ll follow you back! @outlandishreads
