Top Ten Series I’d Like To Start But Haven’t Yet – Top Ten Tuesday

toptentuesssTop Ten Tuesday, asΒ  always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish

This week’s topic: Top Ten Series I’d Like To Start But Haven’t Yet

This could easily have been a list of 50. I tried to pick series that have been on my shelf for a while or were older because there are so many first books in a series that I’ve meant to pick up released in the last year!



vampire-academy seriesbright-young-things-seriesdustlands-series



1.Β  Shadow & Bone by Leigh Bardugo: Pretty much everyoneΒ  I know has read and RAVES about this series.
2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis: I pre-ordered this bad boy when it came out and still it sits. I had really good intentions after I saw her at a Breathless Reads tour but here we are…
3. Graceling by Kristin Cashore: I’ve been wanting to get into fantasy and everyone says START HERE. I’ve had this on my shelf for years just because I had heard so much about it.
4. Cinder by Marissa Meyer: This one never interests me before it came out but the blogosphere started buzzing about it and everybody I know LOVES IT SO MUCH. It’s sitting here from the library and is a few days overdue…OOPSIE.
5. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead: My friends are going to start to disown me if I don’t read this soon.
6. Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersem: This came out around the same time as Vixen — another YA historical full of flappers — and I read and loved Vixen so I decided I’d wait and start BYT after a little so I didn’t compare them too much.
7. Blood Red Road by Moira Young: I bought this at a Borders closing sale because I was super intrigued by post-apocalyptic lit and heard great things. But soon it got lost in all the new books I bought. haha
8. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: So much love for this series amongst bloggers and I even met her at BEA and she was delightful!
9. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor: Seriously. I don’t know why I’ve waited so long!
10. The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde: I bought this like 5 years ago at a used book sale because I thought it sounded cool. Then I got on Goodreads and saw it was a very popular series and got excited. But then I went down the rabbit hole of Goodreads and found millions of other books to buy and this got neglected.

Also, *cough cough* Harry Potter & Divergent. Pleasedonotnoticethis.

So tell me…which series off my list have you read/not read but are wanting to? Which series do I need to BUMP up the TBR list?

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Graceling? Cinder? VAMPIRE ACADEMY?! Omg I am resisting the urge to come find you and lock you in a room with these books and not let you leave until you’ve read them all.

  2. We share 2 choices: Vampire Academy and Graceling series that I posted but now seeing yours, I could have name a couple more.


  3. I haven’t read the Graceling series either, but I hear it is great! I’ve got Bright Young Things on my list too. Great set of series to get into – you have to read Vampire Academy soon!!! πŸ˜€

  4. You MUST read Graceling and Shadow & Bone. I hadn’t read Cinder until a few weeks ago and I’m so mad at myself for procrastinating! But Bright Young Things is on my list as well.

  5. Oh my goodness friend drop EVERYTHING AND READ Graceling, Shadow and Bone, Cinder and Vampire Academy asap! They are absolutely ah-mazing. You can’t even imagine how much happiness those books have given me πŸ™‚

    Marissa @ Rae Gun Ramblings

  6. Cinder was fantastic! I need to read most of these. Probably most excited about Vampire Academy. Great list!

  7. I haven’t read The Vampire Academy series either (I might someday). But, seriously (I’m sure you’ve heard it once or twice before), you must read Daughter of Smoke and Bone- like right now, stop what you’re doing and get er’ done. And after that, Cinder will be waiting for you. You don’t know what you are missing.

    ~Happy Reading.

  8. #2 is on my list today, too! It looks like you’ve got some great SFF on your list – hope you enjoy The Lunar Chronicles & The Seven Kingdoms – I loved both of those series.

  9. Impressive List of Non-Read- Series!! But… I know everyone keeps telling you and so do I – READ CINDER! sooo awesome.. and of course you must start with Shadow and Bone.. so good..

    I also always wanted to read The Seven Kingdoms Series..

  10. Read Bright Young Things!! I loved the Luxe series by Goberson, that’s my personal favorite series of hers, but Bright Young Things is just such a dreamy story to read! It’s truly entertaining and lovely in every way.

  11. So I’ve read 2,3,4,5,7,8, and 9 from your list. And I say start Blood Red Road, Iron King or Daughter of Smoke and Bone. =) BRR and DoSaB are better than their sequels, while book 3 of the Iron Fey is the best among the series!

    my TTT

  12. Yes for Thursday Next! A thousand times yes!

  13. Number 10 is on my list as well.
    Ifyou’re trying to get into fantasy, the Iron Fey series is a nice starting point, it’s a well built world, structured on the common faerie mythology but with a great twist as well. Not to mention, that series is complete, so you don’t have to wait for more books.

  14. You have to read Vampire Academy!!! Such a good series. Shadow and Bone is on my list too.

  15. I forgot Daughter of Smoke & Bone series πŸ˜€

    Here’s Top Ten Tuesday.

  16. Shannon says:

    What?! You haven’t read Shadow and Bone? I think that seriously needs to be bumped up your list. Also, I loved Blood Red Road.

  17. I noticed! You have to read Harry Potter! And also Cinder and Vampire Academy! So many awesome books!

    My TTT

  18. The Grisha Trilogy, Seven Kingdoms, Across the Universe, Iron Fey and Daughter of Smoke and Bone are all great series! You definitely should give them a try! πŸ™‚

  19. I noticed and I have one word for you: DIVERGENT.

  20. Thank goodness I’m not the only one! I haven’t read any of those either, I feel so bad! I want to read Across the Universe, the Iron Fey, the Grisha trilogy, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Cinder as well as the Dust Lands series! However…how can you not have read Divergent yet?! :p Haha! Get to it soon πŸ˜‰

    Kyra @ Blog of a Bookaholic
    My TTT Post

  21. I’m reading Shadow and bone at the moment, it’s AWESOME. The same for Cinder & Scarlet. The Iron Fey books are fun and Graceling also made it to my list. Daughter of smoke and bone is on my reading pile for this month. Can’t wait to finally start it.

    Top 10 Tuesday – Mel@thedailyprophecy.

  22. Oh man, I can’t believe I forgot Laini Taylor on my list! That’s definitely one I’ve been meaning to start (and everyone gives me flack for not having done so yet haha). And I share the Shadow and Bone – everyone loves it, it looks brilliant, the cover art is enough to make me want to devour it…but nothing yet. We’ll get there, Jaime. Soon.

    I do have insist you get to that overdue Cinder! And Across the Universe, as that was the book that started me book blogging in general and I love it so much. Plus, the series is complete so you won’t have to wait on any!

    (and don’t think I didn’t notice that at the end! I’m cowering in the same corner regarding Divergent, but HARRY POTTER?!)

  23. I loved Graceling and daughter of smoke & bone.

  24. I’m hearing so much about Cinder that I’m going to have to break down and read it although I never in a million years would have thought that cyborgs were my thing. The Thursday Next series is on my list too! I’ve always been intrigued by it, but I don’t own any them, so I’ve never actually started reading them.

  25. Oh, this list breaks my heart a little. πŸ˜‰ So many of my favorite series!! Shadow and Bone, The Seven Realms, and VA are all amazing! I hope you get to read them soon.

  26. I think you need to get onto The Iron Fey (Julie Kagawa is an author on my auto-buy) and also Across the Universe (Beth Revis is also on my auto-buy). Both series are awesome! I need to get onto Blood Red Road and Grisha too!

    Check out my TTT.

  27. Graceling, VAMPIRE ACADEMY. what even is happening right here. I don’t know how you’ve managed to keep intel from me. READ THEM RIGHT NOW. omg.

  28. I haven’t read Harry Potter yet either, so you are not alone! Across the Universe also sounds interesting. I think both series will have to be on my list when I post this evening.

  29. Jame you hav to read Vampire Academy! I finally read like three weeks ago an devoured the whole series in just a week! IT WAS THAT GOOD!

  30. Got Jasper Fforde on my list too. Great list!

  31. I think Shadow and Bone, Across the Universe, and Daughter of Smoke and Bone are all only mediocre. However, Graceling, Cinder, and Vampire Academcy are all mindblowing and you need to read them right now.

  32. EEP. Harry Potter? πŸ™ Nice attempt at hiding it though! Haha. I’m with you on the Grisha series and Graceling and The Iron Fey. Love love love The Lunar Chronicles and Daughter of Smoke & Bone. Haha, nice list!

  33. we actually had a few of the same!! (cinder, graceling, daughter of smoke and bone) perhaps future book club reads?? iron fey was on ellie’s list too– that would be another good one.

    also.. you know i have a giant grin on my face over #5!!

    oh, and HOLY CRAP—- you need to read Blood Red Road!

  34. CINDER was really good. I’m waiting to get my hands on SCARLET now. My absolute favorite on your list is EYRE AFFAIR. Love, love, love Jasper Fforde.

  35. You have to read Vampire Academy! It is so awesome and is one of my favorite series!

  36. I hesitated on CINDER, too, just because it looked too sci-fi for me, but a book blogging friend kept telling me to read it already and guess what? TOTAL book love. The sequel’s just as good, maybe even better. I’d definitely recommend getting to the series soon (after you renew your library book, of course).

    Happy TTT!

  37. Ashleigh says:

    I haven’t finished HP yet either! I’m on book 4. Also I don’t even think Divergent is on my TBR list :/. I started Vampire Academy but couldn’t finish…but then Richelle Meads did a spinoff (Bloodlines) and I LOVE IT. So I’ll be re-reading VA soon. Across the Universe is coming up soon on my TBR list (I have to read Boundless, So Close to You, and For Darkness Shows the Stars first.)

  38. word of advice: if you read the Jasper Fforde series, definitely read them all at once, they can be very confusing, but they are sooooo GOOD! I highly recommend them.

  39. I got a lot of recomendations from friends for Across the Universe but I didn’t read it altough I also bought first book. I also forgot to add it to my list. I really should read this soon.

    Graceling is awesome and kick-ass ya fantasy (one of my favorites) but I don’t know why I have a feeling reading your reviews that you would more enjoy something subtle with a lot more emotions like Seraphina.

    Cinder is the best retelling I read. And it was so weird reading from cyborgs point of view. When she comments how she some display poped-up in her view with some warning. It was so weird.

    Vampire Academy is definitelly something you should read soon. One of the best ya I have read for sure. πŸ™‚

    The Iron King did not survive all the hype around it. When I read it it felt full of cliches from ya paranormal series altough most of those cliches were set by this series so maybe it was my fault for not reading it sooner. LOL

    Daughter of Smoke and Bone – I got it on my list too.

    And also I did not read Divergent either πŸ˜‰

  40. Fire is better than Graceling, but the series as a whole is awesome.

    And Jasper Fforde? One of my favorite authors EVER. Seriously. You will want to curl up in his books and live there and be Thursday Next. Sigh. And the parallel Nursery Crimes series? Love it. And his new one, Shades of Grey? Awesome too. AND HE IS WRITING YA NOW TOO! (The Last Dragon Slayer) and it’s amazing.

    And please, please, please read Harry Potter? Pretty please?

  41. Cinder. You definitely need to bump that one on your list. We don’t have any of the same books on our lists, but you’ve reminded me of a few… Like The Eyre Affair.

  42. What perfect timing! I just wrote up and posted my review of Shadow & Bone today, so you might want to check that out. I enjoyed it, because it’s a very different fantasy series, and it’s not too hardcore fantasy (at least to me), so it shouldn’t be intimidating to read this at all!

    I’m right there with you when it comes to starting the Across the Universe series (I own the first two, so I really have no excuse, I think) and Daughter of Smoke and Bone series. I’ve heard wonderful things about these two series, and I think I’d really like them.

    Also, please, please, please read Cinder! I am in love with The Lunar Chronicles series, and I think that Marissa Meyer is an incredible storyteller. She takes these classic fairytales and just RUNS with them in her books – and it’s SO GOOD.

    The Graceling series is FANTASTIC. I haven’t read Bitterblue yet, but I really liked Graceling and was interested in Fire. I need to reread them before Bitterblue, and hopefully I do that this year!

  43. Sarah M. says:

    Oh please, please, please, please read Harry Potter. I have ALWAYS loved reading, but Harry Potter is a story I know will stick with me forever! It is probably the King of YA lit and not much that I have read since then can even top it.

    Divergent is also fantastic and I am eagerly awaiting the 3rd book (stop pushing back the release date for cryin’ out loud!! πŸ™‚ )

    I just finished the Across the Universe series last night…eerrr… very early this morning while I should have been sleeping… and I wasn’t disappointed. What an interesting world!

    Cinder and Graceling are on my TBR list as well. I’m currently trying to decide between starting Cinder, Where She Went, or Everyday next (so difficult!).

  44. Graceling and Blood Red Road are the only two on your list I have read. lol And I’m behind in both series! I agree with what you said, Graceling is a great start to venture further into fantasy. A lot of your other books are on my list, or should have been. Why is there not more time in the day? πŸ™‚

    My Top Ten

  45. You definitely need to check out Graceling. It’s SO GOOD! So is Across the Universe, and Daughter of Smoke & Bone. I also have Cinder on my list, and I’ve wanted to read the Iron King series but didn’t even think to add that one to my list.

    ALSO: Harry Potter and Divergent! Get on those two stat. πŸ˜‰

  46. JASPER FFORDE YES. Okay, to be honest, it took a few years in between tries for me to really ‘get’ him, BUT DON’T LET THAT DISCOURAGE YOU. It was definitely a case of me not being in the right place at the right time. Fforde is definitely quirky and when I first tried his books I just couldn’t get into it – I was totally about SRS BOOKS at the time. A few years later I was bored and pulled the book off my shelf and fell. in. love.

    I started with his Nursery Crimes series, but Thursday Next has my heart as well.


    Seriously, Vampire Academy was the first YA series I read as an adult, after years of JUST sci-fi/fantasy and women’s fiction, so WHOA. First book was somewhat “meh,” but I swear, Richelle gets better with each book. By the third book, I was firmly hooked!

  48. Jamie, you NEED to read a lot of the books on this list. Shadow and Bone, Across the Universe, Cinder, Blood Red Road, and Daughter of Smoke & Bone were all books I LOVED. Loved very much.

    I need to read Anna Godbersen’s newer series as well. I thought her Luxe books were fun and I actually enjoyed how high on drama they were.

  49. JAMIE, you have got to read these. Like, you have to. The only ones that I do not personally LOVE the faces off of are VA (which I do enjoy and is totally worth a read), Bright Young Things (wasn’t super impressed by the Luxe, though it was a guilty pleasure), and The Iron King (which I am in the rare group of hating). BUT read all the other things immediately. And read these too since you want to. Ahhhhh!

  50. hahaha This could have been a list of 50 for me too. Too many series to read! I really enjoyed Shadow & Bone and Blood Red Road. The Vampire Academy series was pretty fun but lost steam towards the end. And I enjoyed Anna Godbersen’s Luxe series more than Bright Young Things but it was still enjoyable. πŸ™‚
    My Top Ten Tuesday!

  51. A lot of these are on my list too, and some that would have been if i could have gone to 20! πŸ™‚ I especially want to read Graceling and Daughter of Smoke and Bone because people rave about them so much… dying to see what all the fuss is about πŸ™‚

  52. Looks like we have a few series in common that we need to start:) I highly recommend Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Cinder and Jasper Fforde’s books, they’re awesome! Great list, here’s my Top Ten.

  53. So, if I was going to give you a list of which ones to start with first, I would definitely say Graceling and Cinder. πŸ™‚ I still haven’t started the Iron Fey series either and my students are harassing me for not reading them yet!

  54. Harry Freakin’ POTTER! You need to read that, like now. I do not understand what people my age read in their childhoods if it wasn’t HP!

    Also Blood Red Road and Daughter of Smoke and Bone are on the same level for me in that they start off kinda slow-ish and then get RIDICAMAZE!

    Cinder is also on my “must start soon” list too though.

  55. I only read the first book in Across the Universe but it was fantastic. The Vampire Academy is one of my favorite series of all time. I own the first book in Graceling but haven’t gotten to it yet unfortunately. Lunar Chronicles also made it on my list. πŸ™‚

  56. Jamie, we’ve discussed you adding things to my TBR list!!

  57. Cinder is AWESOME. One of my favorite series ever. The Dust Land series is on my TTT as well. Harry Potter is a must-read, but it IS a pretty daunting task if you didn’t read the series as they released. It’s a pretty hefty commitment.

  58. Gosh you have so many good ones on your list! I haven’t read any of them either. Guess we have a lot of catching up to do?

    My TTT

  59. So many amazing series! I love Vampire Academy, Lunar Chronicles, and Iron Fey. I still need to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone too. Thanks for sharing!

  60. TheLunar Chronicles is also on my list. Vampire Academy is one of my all time favorites πŸ˜€
    Top 10 Tuesdays

  61. I love the Vampire Academy series! It’s one of my favorites. And Cinder is amazing! I loved it but I didn’t think I would.

  62. Your list is beautiful Jamie!! Your visual skills on this blog are amazing, I love reading your TTT just to see what unique twist you’ll put on them! And girlfriend you gotta get moving on some of these! I’ve read most of the series on your list and they are phenomenal!! Shadow and Bone & Daughter of Smoke and Bone are just ridiculously amazing. Especially DoSaB. Graceling is so good, especially if you’re not into fantasy too much, it is a good stepping stone. The Iron Fey, so good! Don’t let the faery thing bug you because I was the SAME way and only until I just sat down and started reading them did I really finally get what everyone was talking about.

    Totally agree with Vampire Academy, I think Betty is gonna have both our heads if we don’t read these soon….

    And I’m not even gonna touch the Harry Potter comment…ay vay…still love you though πŸ™‚

  63. You REALLY need to read Bright Young Things. I have read the first two books in the series and they are fantastic!

    Also, if you are looking for great characters, hurry up and read Across the Universe!

  64. I’d like to start most of the series you listed here! πŸ˜€ Bardugo, Cashore, Meyer, Kagawa… One day I’ll read you books, I promise!

    I warmly suggest you to read Fforde’s series, it’s really awesome!

  65. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone is on my list too and most of your other picks I could easily have added if I wanted my list to be about 50 long! I made a list of 20 as it is and there are still so many others I could have added. They all sound so good, it’s just crazy!

  66. *hugs you* just for making me feel better about not reading Across the Universe or Cinder – I thought I was the only one in the whole world!!

    (has also not read HP if you need to feel better!)

  67. I have the Thursday Next series on my list too, and while they’re not in my top ten, I also want to read the Across the Universe series and the Iron Fey series. I didn’t particularly care for Graceling, but I know I’m part of the minority where that series is concerned.

    And while I can’t comment on Divergent (I only read the first book last month), I can say – “Read Harry Potter!” I know it’s a lot of books (I personally think book 5 takes the longest to get through), but they are so worth the time.

  68. I haven’t read Divergent either and it’s on my list. No judging here…but seriously, get on that HP train. πŸ™‚

  69. I thought I was bad st reading popular series, but you totally beat me on that one. Cinder is so good! So is Shadow and Bone. There’s an awesome love triangle in that one that I can’t wait to see your reaction on. I did not like VA at all, but it’d be really interesting to see another person’s perspective on that one.

  70. It makes me feel less guilty that I’m not the only one who hasn’t started so many of these series!

  71. Dude! Harry Potter should be at the top of the list!
    But I have Cinder and the Iron King in my TBR too. The never ending pile, lol

  72. Shadow and Bone is a great book! I just read it and really, really enjoyed it. I want to start a lot of the series you mentioned on your list too, particularly Vampire Academy and Graceling. Also? Harry Potter is great. πŸ˜€

  73. Cinder is on my list, too. (: Definitely take some time to read Graceling and Daughter of Smoke and Bone. They’re fantastic.

  74. Oh, I need to read so many of these! I adore VA though! Betty is right to force you to read that haha. Cinder is one of my favorites, mostly because it’s so completely unique and the characters are pretty badass. I’m currently reading/finishing Shadow and Bone and I love it a whole lot, but that’s because I’m a sucker for fantasy. But before you do anything else: READ DIVERGENT. Such a great, fast-paced, thrilling dystopia. And obviously, I think you should read Harry Potter, but it’s different, since I grew up with it. I hope you’ll love it, of course, but I do think our reading experiences will be different πŸ™‚

  75. S&B, DoS&B, Blood Red Road, Cinder, and Vampire Academy are all pretty great, but the Seven Realms Series is one of my FAVORITES. EVER. Especially Fire, the middle novel, so I can’t wait to see what you think of them when you get to those books, Jamie! πŸ˜€ Great list!(:

  76. Read Harry Potter first! Graceling and Shadow and Bone and Cinder are also definitely worth reading. I haven’t heard of The Eyre Affair or Bright Young Things, so I need to look them up!

    My Top Ten Tuesday

  77. Read read read read The Lunar Chronicles. They’re beautiful, nuff said.

  78. Jamie! There is so much brilliance on this list! The ones you MUST MUST MUST read are Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Divergent, The Iron King and Graceling. All of those are in my top ten all-time favorites! And I also really, really love Cinder and Across The Universe and Shadow & Bone! Basically all of them! Ahh!

    Get reading, Missy!

  79. So many people have put Graceling on their lists, and it just boggles my mind. I ADORE Graceling. Everything is practically perfect.

    My TTT:

  80. In my first year of university, my young and enthusiastic English 101 professor assigned The Eyre Affair as an example of postmodern literature. And it was, quite honestly, the most fun I’ve ever had in a lecture. If that’s not a recommendation, I don’t know what is.

    My TTT is here!

  81. Oh my gosh, GO read Shadow and Bone!! I feel like you’ll love it!!
    I really liked Vampire Academy despite feeling a little tired of the whole vampire scene.
    Cinder is another great one too! πŸ™‚

  82. Stephani Richens says:

    I read and loved the Seven Kingdoms series, and am currently reading Scarlet from the Lunar Chronicles. I usually like to wait until a series is finished, or nearly so, until I start it. But I have read so many great comments about Cinder that I just had to read it.
    Some of the others on your list look like I should add them to my list, but it will have to wait until school gets out and I have more time to read!

  83. I have done fauxtos for four of the books on this list…so I’d have to say that this is an excellent list! (BECAUSE MY OPINION IS THE SHIZ.)

  84. The only one of these series that I’ve read is Vampire Academy, and even that was only last year. I really enjoyed it, though. Rose is bad-ass! Honestly, I’m really surprised that Harry Potter wasn’t on this list! lol

  85. GASP! You must start S&B and Cinder asap! Amazing novels that you won’t be able to put down! I still need to read Blood Red Road & Graceling myself, lol.

    Confessions of a Vi3tBabe
    Deity Island

  86. I actually just started The Iron King and am around page 83 and I am enjoying it! More then I thought I would. So I would say give it a chance soon if you can, plus I would love to see a review from you on it:) I actually looked to see if you had a review before I started it but obviously you hadn’t reviewed it as you haven’t read it yet.

    As for Graceling I would say – Read ASAP! So good!

  87. AAHHHH!! So many great series on here, Jamie!!! I’ve only just read Vampire Academy myself, so I can’t give you too much heat for that one, but I can recommend The Lunar Chronicles, Seven Kingdoms, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Iron Fey and OMG TUESDAY NEXT hardcore. Those series are all so, so good, and so DIFFERENT! I hope you get a chance to make some time to read some of them at least!!

  88. Oh, I’m with you on so many of these! Shadow & Bone, Across the Universe, The Lunar Chronicles, The Dust Lands Series… oh boy. We gotta get moving, girl! I definitely do recommend Kristin Cashore’s books though. I really enjoyed them πŸ™‚

  89. It’s nice to see I’m not the only person who hasn’t read Cinder, The Iron King, Vampire Academy or Across the Universe! I keep hearing great things and I will read them, but boy does it feel good to say I’m not the only on who hasn’t started them. πŸ™‚

    See my very first TTT at Read. Sleep. Repeat.

  90. Cinder and The Iron Fey are two of my favorite series! Graceling was also great. I am with you on several of them, so this may be the year that I actually get to Shadow & Bone, Across The Universe and Daughter Of Smoke And Bone.

  91. I have Lunar and Across the Universe on my list! πŸ™‚

    Here’s my My TTT

  92. What great taste you have. I think every single one of these I have started or is on my list to start. I am forever raving about Graceling and Cinder was one of my Favorites from last year. The Iron King is in progress and I love her twist on the fae.
    I am dying to get my hands on Shadow & Bone and Blood Red Road. For some reason every time I see The Eyre Affair I remember that I want to read it and then I forget about it again until the next time.
    But of all of these if I have to pick one to tell you to read it would be Daughter of Smoke and Bone.

  93. I’d say bump up the Iron Fey series. (And Harry Potter and Divergent. Seriously?!) It was great. The Lunar Chronicles are on my to-read list, and I’m currently reading Days of Blood & Starlight and loving that series so far. Graceling and Fire are fantastic (from the Seven Kingdoms) but I didn’t really like Bitterblue. Too creepy. The Vampire Academy is good too, but after the first few books, they just read like more of the same.
