Top Ten Tuesday: If You Like the Lightning Thief You'll Like....

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the girls over at The Broke and the Bookish! Make sure to check them out! Today's topic was to pick a wildly popular novel and recommend books based off of that. So I went to my goodreads and ordered by read books to be listed in ratings and saw that the Lightning Thief was in the top ten of my books. Needless to say, I loved the Lightning Thief! In fact, Percy Jackson and the Olympians is one of my favorite series of all time and what really got me into reading. The first book was published in 2005, so I was around six, or in the second grade, at that time. However, I think I started reading them early fourth grade and finished them in fifth grade. I distinctly remember making my Mom go to Barnes & Noble and buying The Last Olympian as a hardcover book. To say that this series is influential to me is an understatement.

What I'm going to be recommending for you today are either books that center around mythology, are middle-grade novels, or have a cheeky and brazen main character. Who knows? You might get all three!

10.) Three Times Lucky by Sheila Turnage

I read this a while back, but it is an acclaimed middle grade novel with and eclectic cast!

9.) Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat by Lynne Jonell
Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat was one of my favorite books when I was in fifth grade!

8.) Tiger's Curse by Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger's Curse is the first in a young adult series that follows Indian myths. I really enjoyed the first novel, but the later ones frustrated me to no end, so keep that in mind!

7.) Melting of Maggie Bean by Tricia Rayburn

The Melting of Maggie Bean is a middle grade novel with a great theme. There isn't much that is like The Lightning Thief besides it being middle grade, but I definitely recommend it.

6.) The Shadow Thieves by Anne Ursu

I'm a bit hazy on all the details of The Shadow Thieves, but I do remember it completely enthralled me and immersed me into its alternate world.

5.) The City of Ember by Jeanne DePrau

I'm sure you have heard about City of Ember; it was all the rage when I was around ten, and it was also adapted into a movie! City of Ember is a stable middle grade read, so if you haven't read it already, go check it out and see what the hype is about!

4.) Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

My love for the Mysterious Benedict Society cannot
be explained. I completely loved this novel and its sequels when I was younger! The eclectic cast reminds me of the interactions between Percy and his friends as well.

3.) Paranormalcy by Kiersten White

Paranormalcy is the first in a young adult series. The two  reasons that you would like Paranormalcy is because the main character has a sassy personality just like Percy does and it has paranormal aspects just like the first series.

2.) Oh. My. Gods. by Tera Lynn Childs

My best friend and I adored this novel way back when. This one focuses on Greek mythology but is a bit more dramatized towards romance and school aspects of the plot.

1.) Pandora Gets Jealous by Carolyn Hennesy

Pandora Gets Jealous is the most alike to Percy Jackson and The Olympians. The reader follows the infamous Pandora as she opens her box and embarks on a quest to retrieve them. This middle grade novel focuses much more on the adventures and friendships than anything else, just like the five novels in Percy's series.

Have you read any of these? What did you think of them? Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you in my next post!

Book Review: Jesse's Girl by Miranda Kenneally

Jesse's Girl was so much fun!

Jesse's Girl, the seventh novel in the Hundred Oaks series, follows our girl Maya Henry and her wild day of shadowing the world wide country phenomenon, Jesse Scott. Maya is able to shadow Jesse since she said she wanted to be a rock star for career day at her high school. While Jesse isn't the perfect golden boy, he inspires Maya to go with her heart and make the decision on whether or not to go solo.

One thing that I really love about the Hundred Oaks series is that you don't have to read them in any specific order. All of them are companion novels to one another, so while there might be characters that have already been introduced,  knowing them is not vital to the series. What is really cool about Jesse's Girl is that it follows a sibling of the male protagonist of Catching Jordan, the first novel in the series. Seeing the two main characters together and having their happy ending was the cherry on top for me.

I knew right when I was getting into reading this book I would like it. I've read four out of the six books out in her series as of now, and I've liked every one of them. So far, the fifth novel, Breathe, Annie, Breathe, has been my favorite out of all of them. Music is a substantial part of the novel and I loved every second of it. Both Maya and Jesse are musicians, but they're in different stages of their career. Jesse is a famous musician who has made it into the world while Maya is trying to break into the industry. Seeing two different people at different parts of their career made for a really great story and tension when it was needed.

The one thing that kept me from loving this novel was that I couldn't really connect to the characters that well. In Catching Jordan and Breathe, Annie, Breathe, I felt for the characters so much and my heart was aching for their happy ending. Unfortunately, I just didn't care for the Maya and Jesse as I have Kenneally's other characters.

With that being my only critique, it is obvious to say that I really liked this novel. It was so much fun to read and got me out of my reading slump for physical books. If you haven't read any of Miranda Kenneally's novels, I would recommend this one or Catching Jordan. Out of the four I've read my most to least liked would be as follows: Breathe, Annie, Breathe, Catching Jordan, Jesse's Girl, and Stealing Parker. Keneally's writing is immersive and I 100% recommend her novels!

With that, I give this book

3.9 out of 5 Stars!

Have you read any of Miranda Kenneally's novels? If so, what's your favorite!

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you soon!

Currently Reading and TBR!

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I'm going to be talking about what I am currently reading and what I am about to in the next week or so!

As of right now, I am between books. I just finished Jesse's Girl by Miranda Kenneally. I really enjoyed it; the novel was a fun, quick, read. My review of the novel will be up soon! I recently received an upcoming regency novel coming out by Bree Wolf. Titled Forgotten & Remembered, I am aiming to end this before the month is over! I have an excellent relationship with Bree and I know I won't be disappointed. While I just started it, Wolf's writing as already drawn me in! You should definitely check Bree out!

Once I finish that, I'm not sure what to read. I just recently stopped by my local library and picked up several books that I'm seriously looking forward to! At the library I picked up The Winner's Crime, The Wrath and the Dawn, and Wild Cards. Since I just finished a YA contemporary and I am reading a regency romance, I'm thinking of picking up either The Winner's Curse or The Wrath & The Dawn. I've been dying to read Rutkoski's sequel to The Winner's Curse, but I hope I won't be disappointed. The first novel left my heard shattered in glass pieces on the ground, and this one will proabably torture me so much that the glass will become grains of sand. I know it's going to happen, but I don't think I'll ever be prepared for the hearbreak I am going to have while reading it. Kestrel and Arin better have their happy ending by the conclusion to the series or I might hurt someone.

On the other hand, I have heard amazing things of Renee Ahdieh's debut novel. Plus, she went to the college that I hope to attend, UNC Chapel Hill, because of it's amazing English program.

What should I read first? The Winner's Curse or The Wrath & The Dawn? What are you reading right now or are about to be?

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll see you guys soon with another post!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books on My Fall TBR

Hey guys! Welcome back to Ready, Set, Read! Today I'm talking about my top ten books on my fall TBR! Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme over at the The Broke and Bookish! Make sure to check them out! Here's a list of my top ten books I want to read so far. Most are coming out this year, but a couple have already been released that I just haven't been able to get my hands on yet. These aren't n any particular order!

These ten books are part of my fall TBR! They are all being released before the winter solstice, and I cannot wait to read them! I just bought Every Last Word just last week, so hopefully I can find the time really soon to read it! Winner's Crime has been staring at me for quite a while now, and I don't know why I keep putting it off! Another novel out of these ten that have already been published include Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon and Sweet Temptation by Wendy Higgins. Nicola Yoon is a debut author this year, but her novel has been getting so much praise and I'm excited for the time when I get my hands on the novel from my local library. A book that isn't at my local library is Sweet Temptation. I just recently read the first three books in this trilogy on my online library, but couldn't find this one. Hopefully they get it soon, or I'll have to wait for it! The Rose Society and The Revolution of Ivy are both sequels that are coming out later this year. While both of these are set in dystopian worlds, The Rose Society by Marie Lu is the second in a trilogy and more fantasy based while The Revolution of Ivy is only a duology! I'm excited to see how the series is going to wrap up or continue; both left off on really good endings that kept me wanting more! There are three other novels that are also conclusions to series, including Their Fractured Light, the third and final book in the Starbound trilogy; A Mad Zombie Party ,the fourth concluding novel to the White Rabbit Chronicles; and Winter, the epic conclusion to the Lunar Chronicles! These three are concluding some of my favorite YA series, so I'm eagerly anticipating reading them! I might die from my anxiety! Last but certainly not least is Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I have such high expectations since Kaufman also wrote the Starbound trilogy. Illuminae sounds so cool just based off of how the story is being told only through emails, reports, texts, and so on. Talk about a refreshing read!

Those are my top ten books on my fall TBR! Do we have any in common? What are some biggies you think I'm missing?

Happy Reading!

Book Review: Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

Biggest Flirts was such a hard book for me to get through.

To say that my feelings are torn on this novel is to put it lightly. I liked the premise of this novel and had high hopes for the story to draw me in. Unfortunately, something was missing for me. I kept grasping at straws trying to connect to any of the characters and found my hands empty.

Biggest Flirts follows Tia Cruz and her relationship with new comer Will Matthews. They have an immediate attraction to each other, but they're looking for different things. The situation becomes even more awkward once they realize they are both in the drumline of their school's marching band.

What really bothered me throughout the novel was the two main characters. Both of them were so immature, and I could not believe that they would act they way they did as seniors in high school. Tia and Will kept on making the same mistakes with not only each other, but with their lives in general. Tia is all about having fun and not thinking about the future, and I hated it. I couldn't connect to a character who was so flippant about her future. Will, on the other hand, was too serious. He always thought of the repercussions of everything he did all the time and it was so annoying. The only time I liked either of these characters was when they were together.

The representation of Tia's family was so well done. Not only was the dynamics between Tia, her sisters, and her dad seem real, but so did the problems they encountered. Once I found out more about Tia's past, I appreciated her a lot more than I did. I wish that we learned about her past earlier in the novel just because I liked her much more afterwards. Though the familial aspect of the story was just a sub-plot, it was what kept me going when I was struggling through the novel.

One thing that just annoyed me so much was the marching band aspect of the story. I am a member of my high school's marching band, and it was portrayed unfairly. I completely understand how that marching bands all rehearse differently, but the marching band in Biggest Flirts wasn't even a little bit similar to mine. There were so many times that I thought there would be scenes at the football games or a competition where something crucial would occur, but we didn't see the marching band outside of their practices.

The reason I still like this book is purely because of the beginning and ending. While the bulk of the book was disappointing, Echols gave her all in the first and last fifty pages. I can't say I like this book, but I by no means hate it either. I probably will not be continuing on with the series, but might check out some of her other works. Her writing style was an aspect I like as well and I've always wanted to look into her novels for quite a while now.

With that, I give this book

2.75 Stars

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Free Ebooks!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the The Broke and Bookish.This week's topic was one of our own choosing and I decided to talk all about my guilty pleasure: free ebooks! Whenever I feel myself in a reading slump, a quick book where I don't have to think gets me back into my reading mood. Some this year have really surprised me and down below is a list of my top ten finds of these past couple years!

10.) This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

This Night So Dark is a free novella in the Starbound trilogy and sets place between books one and two. Though I didn't really get anything from this novella, I loved all the scenes between Tarver and Lilac. Going into Tarver's past and finding out why he was considered a hero was amazing to read.

9.) Wish by Alexandra Bullen

I read Wish right once I got my Nook, so I don't know whether or not this novel is still free. Though I'm a bit hazy on what happens, I liked this enough to buy its sequel. From what I remember Wish centers around a girl who receives a magical dress that can grant any one wish. Though it wasn't the best novel, I still had fun reading it and the sequel.

8.) Planet Urth by Jennifer and Christopher Martucci 

I read Planet Urth almost a year ago. The story is a dystopian that follows two sisters and their fight to survive. What kept me from continuing on was that there was a severe lack of world building, so I got confused on what was exactly happening. Planet Urth wasn't perfect, but it sure was entertaining.

7.) Tara's Tears by Karla Unger

At the time I read Tara's Tears I felt it was a bit underwhelming. However, this is one of my favorite free ebooks because I still think about the story to do this day. Yes, the details are hazy, but the fact that it has stuck by me for over a year is something worth talking about.

6.) Open Minds by Susan Kaye Quinn

Open Minds is the first in a young adult series by Susan Kaye Quinn. The debut in a series, Open Minds has an amazing concept where everyone can read each other's minds. Our main character, Kira Moore, is a zero. This means she can't read people's minds and others cannot read hers. The reader goes on a great adventure as Kira learns more about herself and whether or not she actually has an ability. While the writing was eloquent, the story held by attention and was a solid three star read.

5.) Double Dare by Rhonda Nelson

Double Dare is such a cute novel! Like most of these, they are not the best written or have the most original plot, but Double Dare was so much fun I could easily over look it. Though Double Dare might be excruciating if I analyzed it in any way, the novel is meant to be a "no thinking just reading" type of read.

4.) Wicked Games by Jessica Clare

Wicked Games, a new adult read, is based off of the popular TV show Survivor. When Abby, our main character, is accepted into the show, she finds one thing she never expected, love. Just like many others, Wicked Games is such a fun and fast paced book. I loved how we not only saw the game show aspect but the aftermaths as well.

3.)  Red at Night by Katie McGarry

Red at Night is a novella by Katie McGarry that was released just last year. If you've heard of Katie McGarry, you probably know that she is known for her young adult contemporaries, especially the Pushing the Limits series. This novella took me by surprise and every time I read it, I like it even more than the last.

2.) After Midnight by Melissa Landers

After Midnight is a novella that takes place between the first and second book in Melissa Landers' Alienated trilogy! Taking place near Christmastime, the novella follows our two main characters and how they celebrate Christmas together for the first time. Basically, After Midnight is the cutesy stuff we all want at the end of a contemporary novel, except this has aliens.

1.) Him by Carey Heywood

Him by Carey Heywood is my favorite free ebook I have read so far since 2012. I found this novel earlier this year, and just finished the trilogy just this week. Him introduces our two main characters, Will and Sarah, who have secretly been in love with each other since high school. When they meet up again for a wedding, the past is brought up. The story was so spectacular and introduced my favorite trope of best friends falling in love. Him is a must read!

Thanks for stopping by guys! Have you read any of these? What is your favorite free read? Let me know down in the comments!

Best New Adult Books I've Read This Year!

Unethical by Jennifer Blackwood

Unethical is the first new adult book I've read this year and I still think about it to this day. The romance was great and I loved how even there was a perfect balance between the romance and the conflict. This was the first novel I read of Blackwood's, and I liked it so much I bought the next novel in the series, which followed two different characters. Not only was Unethical sexy, it was a fun read as well. Both Payton and Blake went through some great character development and their relationship was amazing. There were some really dark parts in the book, and Jennifer Blackwood handled them really well.

Any Novel I've Read by Colleen Hoover (Slammed, Confess, Hopeless, and Maybe Someday)

This was the year that I finally started reading Colleen Hoover, and I am so glad I did! I haven't read a book that I didn't like from her. Her books are so addicting and I once I started reading her novels, I couldn't stop. The characters are so relateable and I can connect to them so easily. Slammed was my first Hoover novel and completely took me by surprise. My emotions are all over the place when I read her books. If you have not read anything by Colleen Hoover yet, pick up her books right now. In my personal opinion, Slammed or Hopeless is the book you should pick up if you are new to her.

Him by Carey Heywood

I picked up Him by Carey Heywood on a whim, and I am so glad I did! Him follows the story of two best friends. Sarah and Will,  and how they fell for each other in high school. When they see each other again for Sarah's brother's wedding, their unresolved conflicts come to a head. I really loved how Him was set up; there were flashbacks throughout the story that just made the story have so much more depth. The sequel, Her, was just as good and I really want to pick up the concluding novel, Them before the year is up.

Ransom by Rachel Schurig

Ransom by Rachel Schurig follows Daisy, a college girl with extreme anxiety issues who just happens to have a personal connection to one of the biggest superstars in the world, Daltrey Ramone. Just a year ago, Daltrey and his brother's left Daisy, his best friend, in order to pursue his music career. Daisy and Daltrey have both been in love with each other, but they never told each other their true feelings. Their story was so touching. Ransom took me on such a whirlwind of a ride and I loved every bit of it. My expectations were exceeded over and over again. I will definitely be reading more Schurig in the future!

Touch Me Not by Apryl Baker

I just read Touch Me Not three days ago and flew through it. Touch Me Not also faces a main character with anxiety issues, but she has a phobia of touching. She strikes a deal with the school's playboy that will help her come over her fears while he doesn't sleep around. Touch Me Not dealt with some really great topics about finding and accepting yourself. Lily and Nikoli, the two main characters, worked amazingly well together. I loved how there was a perfect combination of both light and dark; the novel never got too heavy for me. You can find more of my thoughts on this book here!

What have been some of your favorite NA novels this year? I thought about adding A Court of Thorns and Roses, but the book is on the borderline between young adult and new adult. What genre do you see it under?

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Reading!

Wattpad Reviews! (Part 2)

Since the first Wattpad Review, I have read six others. To be quite honest, I think I binge read Wattpad stories. I didn't read anything from Wattpad for a good three weeks, and all of a sudden September rolled around and I felt the need to check out some stories. Out of the six, I'll be mentioning only five, because I was indifferent to one of them and don't have much to say about it. Let's get on to it!

1.) The Cell Phone Swap by Lindsey Summers
Keep in mind the author's username for the app is DoNotMicrowave, so if you type in the name above, you might not find the book!

I was pleasantly surprised by The Cell Phone Swap! I didn't know much going into the book and to be honest, the cover is what made me click on it and start reading. The plot centers around a girl Keeley and how she mistakenly swaps phones with Talon, and arrogant and sex driven teenager. There's this big reveal about halfway through that was done really well, but after that there was a lot of drama that was unneeded in my opinion. Both Talon and Keeley kept on fighting the same fight over and over again, which got on my nerves. Overall though, the book was a lot of fun and kept me on my toes while reading it. Though I liked the first half way more than the second, I would still recommend this to read if you're looking for a quality read on the app!

3.5 Stars

2.) My Brother's Best Friend by KnightsRachel

My Brother's Best Friend is a story that centers around my guilty pleasure plot. Emily has just moved in with her twin once coming back from rehab and it met with the unexpected when she learns that she has another roommate, Parker. I really loved the writing style of the book, but I didn't really like the two main characters that much. Emily frustrated me often throughout the book because she would make snap judgments of people, more specifically girls that would hang around Parker. Like in The Cell Phone Swap, there was tons of unnecessary drama. However, I still liked this book. It was just short of three stars, but it was worth the read. The epilogue at the end was almost perfect.

2.75 Stars

3.) In 27 Days by HonorintheRain

In 27 Days blew me away. As you can tell from the ratings, this and Touch Me Not were my favorites of the five. This novel centers around our main character Hadley. In the beginning of the book, we learn that a person in her school, Archer Morales, had committed suicide. Hadley is surprised by the news but even more shocked when Death himself pays her a visit and gives her a chance to save his life. Needless to say, I could not stop reading this book! It was so good and on par with a lot of the young adult novels out there. The climactic scene of this is off the charts and if I were to have read this when it was only being updated and I had to wait for the next chapter, I would have died with anticipation! In 27 Days is a must read for any wattpad users who like the YA genre.

4 Stars

4.) Touch Me Not by Apryl Baker
Apryl Baker's username in the app is AprylBaker7.

After having such a great experience with In 27 Days, I wanted to read something that was completely different. That turned out to be Touch Me Not. This novel centers around Lily, a bookworm who is known around campus to be the go to tutor and who happens to have a phobia of physical contact. Nikoli, the bad boy of campus, is intrigued by Lily. Soon enough the strike up a deal that will not only try to help Lily with her phobia but Nikoli and his sleeping around. Touch Me Not was such an addicting read and delved into deep topics and handled itself really well. The novel was fun and steamy, and I could not put it down for the life of me. I applaud the author. She didn't just make me care for the characters, she made me root for them as if they were real life people. I'll definitely be picking up more of her stuff. Keep in mind this is more new adult than young adult, so there are some more graphic scenes than you would see in your typical young adult novel.

4 Stars

5.) Bon Bons to Yoga Pants by Katie Cross
The author's username is also different, and is under KatieCross4.

I just finished Bon Bons to Yoga Pants just today, and I didn't mean to. I only just gotten into the double digits chapters of this 55 part story. To say that this novel is addicting is an understatement. Cross's writing immediately pulled me in and even though I sometimes got really annoyed with the main character, I could not put it down. Bon Bons to Yoga Pants is a chick lit novel about Lexie Greene's journey to lose weight in preparation for her little sister's wedding and to impress Bradley, who she messages with on Facebook. Though she starts for the wrong reasons, Lexie really grows as a character and her story was truly inspiring. This is exactly what chick lit should be.

3.65 Stars

As I'm sure you can tell, I enjoyed these a lot more than the first four I picked up. I've noticed that I am more drawn to books that are not only contemporary, but are different than most Young Adult books I have read. Yes, there are a lot of bad boy contemporaries and the sort, but there are also a lot of unique contemporaries with concepts that I have not seen published. For me, I like those stories a bit more just because their nothing like I've ever read. I'm really hitting my groove with wattpad, but like I said before, I am going to take a break for a little bit. If you are looking for your next read, maybe take these into consideration! You can find me on Wattpad here!

Happy Reading!

Top Ten Tuesday: Series I Haven't Finished

This year, I've finished up a lot of series and some have become my favorites. However, there are some that I still haven't read that I'm really looking forward to! I'm going to be listing books where the series has completed or where I haven't read up to the latest release, or else I'm going to be listing series that won't be finished for a while!

1.) The Taking Trilogy by Melissa West
I read Gravity, the first book in the trilogy, a while back and adored it. Gravity was one of the books I read right as I was getting into sci-fi, and it has such a special part in the heart. I'm sure if I read it now I could find flaws, but I still recommend this trilogy! I finished the second book this February, and I really want to finish the series by the end of the year.

2.) Partials Sequence by Dan Wells
It was actually more than a year ago since I've read Partials, and to be quite honest, I'm really hesitant to pick up the next book even though I own it. I forgot most of the stuff that happened, and though I like the story I feel like I'd need a really big refresher on what happened before I read it, so it might be a while until I actually finish this.

3.) Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
The last time I read a Vampire Academy novel was back in April, and I was sure I was going to finish the series by the end of this year. When I finished Blood Promise, the fourth novel, I was actually a bit disappointed. I haven't felt the need to read these books, and I think a break from the series is much needed. However, the first three books were addicting and blew me away, so I am thinking about picking up the fifth once I get a break from school.

4.) Prisoner of Night and Fog Duology by Anne Blankman
Just by looking at my read shelves, you can tell I don't read historical fiction that much. It takes a lot for me to be drawn into the story, but the first novel in this duology blew me away. Prisoner of Night and Fog was one of my favorites from last year, and the more I think about it, the more I want to pick up its sequel and conclude the story.

5.)  Wolves of Mercy Falls by Maggie Steifvater
When I read Forever, the third book in the former trilogy, I thought I was done. Back when I read it in 2011, I loved the story and the first three books do hold a certain nostalgia for me. I started reading the first book back when I was in sixth grade, and I'm now in eleventh. Four years have passed since reading Forever and though I do want to read about Cole and Isabel, my interest in the books have dwindled. However, it's just one book and my online library does have it for me whenever I want.

6.) Reboot Dulogy by Amy Tintera
Reboot took me by surprise when I read it. What surprised me even more was that this series is a duology! The first novel was quick paced and dark. Once again, my library has this online whenever I want to have it. I might be picking this one up soon!

7.) Penryn & the End of Days by Susan Ee
I adored Angelfall, the first in the trilogy by Susan Ee. You can find my review here! When I finished the book I picked up the second straight away, but I'm hesitant to read it not only because my library doesn't have the third but because my expectations are so high. I don't want to be disappointed, so I am going to be putting off World After until my own fangirling dies down a bit.

8.) Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare
I have such a strong love-hate relationship with Cassandra Clare's books. I didn't really like City of Bones, but the series has gotten better as it has progressed. I've now read three of the Mortal Instruments Series and one of The Infernal Devices trilogy. Though I loved City of Glass, I didn't like Clockwork Angel that much (you can find my review here). Since I read her books by publication date, it will take me a while to get through this series. But the TV series is coming out next year, so I want to be further on in the series before that airs.

These last two are my exceptions! The last book in each of these series are coming out later this year and I'm so excited to read them this year!

9.) White Rabbit Chronicles by Gena Showalter
When I found out a fourth book was coming out in this series, I got so excited! I love the world and plot, and I'm really happy to see Frosty finally get the happy ending he deserves. Every single book I have given five stars to. The books have grown just as I have as a reader, and I'm eagerly awaiting the final book. This series is the perfect blend of light, dark, funny, and steamy. The White Rabbit Chronicles is absolutely delicious and bleeds with intrigue. I cannot wait for the final installment.

10.) The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer
The finale to the Lunar Chronicles is my most anticipated read of this year. Marissa Meyer is coming to a town near me during her book tour, and I could not be happier. The Lunar Chronicles is one of my favorite YA series of all time and I cannot wait for what is bound to be an epic conclusion. Can we also talk about how Winter is 824 pages? I love it already.

Sorry this was so late guys! My week has been hectic to say the least! Are some of your series on the list? What did you think about them?

Happy Reading!
