A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near home in Deadwood, South Dakota, when she falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square-shaped hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand.
Seventeen years later, the mystery of the bizarre artifact remains unsolved – the object’s origins, architects, and purpose unknown.
But some can never stop searching for answers.
Rose Franklin is now a highly trained physicist leading a top-secret team to crack the hand’s code. And along with her colleagues, she is being interviewed by a nameless interrogator whose power and purview are as enigmatic as the relic they seek. What’s clear is that Rose and her compatriots are on the edge of unravelling history’s most perplexing discovery-and finally figuring out what it portends for humanity. But once the pieces of the puzzle are in place, will the result be an instrument of lasting peace or a weapon of mass destruction?

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010 out of a love of lists. It recently changed to That Artsy Reader Girl and that’s where you can find the topics for each Tuesday.
This week’s topic is:
Series I’ve Given Up On/Don’t Plan to Finish OR Series I’d Like to Finish Someday (Submitted by A Book and a Cup).
I don’t have many series I’ve started that I wouldn’t like to continue, and the ones I do, I’ve talked about already in other posts. Since the topic mentions that we can also choose to talk about series we would like to finish, I decided to go for that.
I’ll be talking about some series I recently started and want to continue ASAP, others that I’m not sure when I will be getting to but want to, and finally some series I have yet to start but feel that I really want to try out!
Do you have any series you’ve given up on? Also, what series would you like to continue but haven’t done so yet?

How has your month been? May, for me, was actually pretty good!
First of all, because we finally have sun and warmth! I missed this weather! It always makes me so much happier! Anyone else?
But I also had my last exams at the beginning of the month, so after that, I dedicated myself a bit more to reading, which I couldn’t be happier about! Plus I also kind of bought quite many books this month, so we have a haul coming up next month (I will join it with my birthday haul)!
I’ve read 12 books, 2 of them being manga and 1 graphic novel. I also started 3 other books, which I was aiming to have finished but oh well! I just hope next month is as good for me, as this one was.
