Oh man. This is the perfect TTT for me – there are SO MANY series that I’ve been meaning to read, but haven’t been able to, either because I’ve been too busy, or there’s too much hype, or I’m just too behind. It’s no surprise that most of these are NOT contemps…I think that kind of says something about me as a reader.
Anyway, in no particular order:
1. Delirium by Lauren Oliver – I can’t even count the number of people who have told me to read this. I’m really going to try for this month, guys, especially since Requiem just came out!
2. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi – Same with this one. Giselle at Book Nerd Canada probably wants to beat me over the head with it at this point.
3. Deviants (The Dust Chronicles) by Maureen McGowan – Not only does this dystopian with a heroine who can kill with her emotions sound amazing, but Maureen has also been the most awesome supporter of me and my blog. It’s on my schedule, I promise!
4. Bumped by Megan McCafferty – Have I mentioned I’m a huge Megan McCafferty fan? Yes? Well, I’m embarrassed to say I still haven’t picked up her latest books, even though I have a signed copy of Bumped. I have no excuse.
5. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi – Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner has been such a champion of this book…I feel like I need to read it.
6. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare – I’m seriously the last YA reader on the planet who hasn’t touched these. They really never interested me until I saw the movie trailer. I’m still a bit on the fence, but I’m willing to try.
7. The Name of the Star (Shades of London series) by Maureen Johnson – This is another author who is very near and dear to my heart, but I just haven’t been motivated to read this series lately. Maybe because I love her contemporary books so much that I’m not sure I’m ready for horror?
8. Starling by Lesley Livingston – Actually, anything by Lesley Livingston, but Starling is the one that totally gets me. I love the fact that Mason is a fencer! Lesley is another fun, supportive Canadian author who I’ve been totally ignoring. *embarrassed*
9. Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight – This was one I got for Christmas and is still sitting on my shelf. I love Austen-inspired novels and I just haven’t gotten to this. TBR, why won’t you shrink?
10. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas – I bought this for myself in October, and I was super-excited about delving into fantasy. Still haven’t started it. I’m turning into a puddle of guilt right now.
Honorable mentions: A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, Paranormalcy by Kiersten White, Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School series) by Gail Carriger, Matched by Ally Condie
