A weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish
Some of of these books have been on my MUST READ list for as long as I can remember, others are just kind of random.
In no particular order…
*drum roll please*
by J.K. Rowling
Before you all FREAK OUT and slay me…. hear me out. These books were huge back when I was working at an after school program so I have read my fair share of excerpts throughout the series. I have also seen a few of the movies. I am the kind of person that has to do things in order. I felt cheated because of the bits and pieces I’d read and seen, so felt it would be unfair to enter a legendary series after giving it such crappy respect. I know, IIII KNOW!
Percy Jackson and the Olympians
by Rick Riordan
This series looks fabulous! I love fantasy in general. There is nothing better than an adventure that feels magical. Plus I’m a big fan of Greek Mythology. I’ve heard people rave about these books and every time I see any of them listed on any review site there are tons of stars next to it!
by Megan McCafferty
Believe me. I know. This is shocking, especially considering my love for kissing books is no secret. I blame this on the sad truth that I got into YA late in the game!
The Tomorrow Series
by John Marsden
I have been drawn to this series ever since I started reading YA. Initially I read so many great reviews about it, but then read some more that weren’t so great. I ended up choosing other books that seemed to have a better track record… kinda wish I went with my gut. I WILL READ THIS SERIES!
The Infernal Devices
by Cassandra Clare
Again, my issue with order! I love the City of Bones series, but not really a fan of going back in time. I enjoyed the Star Wars movies, but hated it when the new ones came out focusing on the past! Drove me crazy. However, I purchased the first two books this week so they will get read!!
Daughter of Smoke and Bone
by Laini Taylor
I am a total sucker for paranormal romance. There is something insanely sexy about otherworldly creatures! I’ve heard good things about these books and they just look damn cool.
by Jennifer Rush
Honestly, I know very little about this series other than that it is a mystery and at least 5 people have been harassing me to read it!
by Kristin Cashore
Everything about this series seems right up my alley, but for whatever reason I’m not usually down with Kings, Princesses, Princes, etc. Yes, that sounds silly, but that is the main reason I’ve held off on reading these!
by Michelle Hodkin
Okay. I’ve heard this series is crazy good. At least Judith says so. She usually knows what’s up, so I took her word for it and ordered them. Oh and apparently NOAH SHAW is my kinda guy.
by Marissa Meyer
This is a series everyone keeps talking about, but I can’t bring myself to read. I really really want to, but I’m so turned off by the whole Cinderella spin. I’m never into that. With that said, at some point I am bound to take a leap of faith and just read them.
Please be nice.
I get it. Harry Potter. Jessica Darling.
I already feel like this:
So tell me….. where should I start??
Any others that should be added to my list??
