First thing’s first, (I’m the realist) I’m going to go ahead and say that most of the books here are YA (young-adult) fantasy. So yes, I do read YA. I just don’t read it a lot, lol. Enjoy!

Finnikin of the Rock (Lumatere Chronicles #1) by Melina Marchetta
I’m not gonna lie. It’s not the greatest book cover but the start-up line is pretty cool–“At the age of nine, Finnikin is warned by the gods that he must sacrifice a pound of flesh to save his kingdom.”
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn (Eon #1) by Alison Goodman
I have a confession. I haven’t read any book that contains dragon or has something to do with dragons. So this one particularly caught my eye since (they say) the protagonist, which is a girl, is so bad ass! So why not?
The Young Elites (The Young Elites #1) by Marie Lu
I’ve been seeing this a lot in my goodreads timeline. And when I read the plot, sparks flew. And also because my sister has been recommending me to read Legend by Marie Lu but I wasn’t into the plot, so i opted for this one.
The Archived (The Archived #1) by Victoria Schwab
“Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.” Sounds good to me.
Code Name Verity (Code Name Verity #1) by Elizabeth Wein
I’ve been eying this out for a while now and I think I regret not buying this. This centers in WWII with strong female protagonist. Again, with strong female protagonist.
Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1) by Sarah J. Maas
I wanna know what the hype is all about.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone #1) by Laini Taylor
Dude her natural hair color is blue. I gotta have that stuff. This is actually included in my Timely TBR, so review will be up soon!
Shadow and Bone (The Grisha #1) by Leigh Bardugo
I’ve been lusting over this one. This has been receiving a lot of hype recently. And I knew this book even before it was hyped up, but a lot of people have been liking the series (not the first book) so much that it makes me kind of curious enough to read it. AND TALK ABOUT THAT COVER, PLEASE.
Cinder (The Lunar Chronicles #1) by Marissa Meyer
Re-tellings of different fairy tales including Cinderella, Little Red Ridding Hood and Rapunzel. Jeez, that sounds freaking amazing. Cinder is Cindarella’s re-telling apparently she becomes a cyborg of some sort. Also A+ for the cover!
The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking #1) by Patrick Ness
“Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise.” YES, PATRICK NESS. YES!
