Sarah J. MaasThrone of Glass-I’ve only read Throne of Glass but I’m soon to read Crown of Midnight. I can’t wait to get stuck into it. I should listen to my blogger friends more!


Brodi AshtonEverneath series– I have completed the whole of the Everneath series this year. I love Brodi Ashton’s writing!


Malorie BlackmanNoughts and Crosses, Knife Edge, Cloud Busting– I can’t believe I haven’t read any Malorie Blackman before now. I have learnt from my mistake! πŸ˜‰


Robin TalleyLies We Tell Ourselves– I thought this book was stunning! I very much enjoyed it, even though it was a tough read!


Heather DemetriosSomething Real- This is easily one of my favourite books of the year. I absolutely devoured it. An unexpected gem.


Mindy McGinnis- Not A Drop To Drink– This is another book that I didn’t expect to like as much as I did!


Sally GreenHalf Bad– I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I can’t wait to read the next in the series!


Emery LordOpen Road Summer– I was really impressed with Open Road Summer. I’m happy to read that Emery has another book coming out next year!


Leigh BardugoThe Grisha Trilogy– This is another series that I’ve devoured this year. I may have been late to the party, but IΒ powered through the series in a few months!


Abigail Tarttelin Golden Boy– I adored this book. It’s so intense but incredibly well written!

  1. I was late to the party for Leigh Bardugo too (I read the entire Grisha series this year) as well as Sarah J Maas (who I’m still on the fence about). Your list reminds me that I REALLY need to pick up a book by Malorie Blackman, I hear her novels are powerful!
    My TTT

    • I’m currently reading Crown of Midnight and enjoying it! I’m glad to read that you tore through the Grisha series as well. Leigh Bardugo is an amazing author! πŸ™‚ I highly recommend Malorie Blackman!

  2. I need to read Something Real by Heather Demetrios. Sounds amazing. I love how you have Malorie Blackman and Robin Talley on your TTT list. And Half Bad was pretty good! I can’t wait for Half Wild.

  3. I almost included some of your authors on my list (Emery Lord, Heather Demetrios, and Sally Green) as I loved their books so very muchly! Then I realized my list could go on forever if I didn’t put some limits on it. lol Good choices!

    My TTT is here.

  4. Sarah J. Maas is on my list as well. I loved her Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight so much. And The Grisha trilogy by Leigh Bardugo is so good as well!

    Lies We Tell Ourselves is going to make it to my priority list I think. I read an excerpt of it in the Buzz Books and it seemed incredible to me.

    So many of these are on my to-read list.

    Great list!

  5. Crown of Midnight is even better than ToG, and Heir of Fire is ten times better than that! I’m pretty sure they just improve with every book xD

    I’m so excited for Half Wild! Just a few more months πŸ˜€ I think I need to read Half Bad though, just to refresh my mind.

  6. I’m stuck part of the way through HALF BAD and was just thinking of calling it quits perhaps I should try harder after your confession how much you liked it.

  7. I love your design!!!
    How did you do it?
    I loved the Throne of Glass series but I didn’t quite enjoy Half Bad as much as you did. It reminded me a lot of Beautiful Creatures and I didn’t like that series. I’m glad you liked it anyway. The cover is beautiful, though

  8. I agree with so many of these! Definitely Leigh Bardugo, and Mindy McGinnis, and Heather Demetrios! I haven’t read Something Real yet, but I read I’ll Meet You There and adored it! And I MUST read Lies We Tell Ourselves, Half Bad, and Throne of Glass ASAP. GREAT list!
