Veronica’s:

1. The Unearthly Trilogy by Cynthia Hand:

Apart from The Infernal Devices, I hadn’t been enjoying any fantasy or paranormal series as of late but the Unearthly Trilogy made me remember why I loved reading Fantasy when I was younger. The plot twists, the characters, the world, and the roller coaster ride that are the books are something you need in your life. Trust me.

2. The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler

I am a fan of Sarah Ockler and her new book did not disappoint, but made my love for her books intensify. This book envelopes family, romance, and tragedy all in one. It will break your heart in a good way.

3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

I don’t know what I could say to make you want to read this book. I will let the book speak for itself. Go buy it and then, we’ll talk.

4. Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally

Who knew I could relate to a girl who is the captain of the football team, but I did. I loved this book in so many ways. This book was real, not in a tragic sense as we see in a lot of recent YA books, but in a sense how in life ,we don’t always get what we expect and sometimes, it is exactly what we need.

5. Perfect Scoundrels by Ally Carter

Kat Bishop is one of my favorite female characters of all time. This book brought out a whole new side to Kat and Hale. Any book by Ally Carter is like chocolate to me. Pure unadulterated chocolate.

 

Anjie’s:

6. The Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare

Favorite book and favorite trilogy of all time. I thought it ended perfectly, it did smother me in feels but I was happy and it was truly beautiful and tragic at the same time.

7.The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead

One word, SYDRIAN. It was beautiful and a cliffhanger in the end to keep you on your toes until the next book.

8.Boundless (Unearthly #3) by Cynthia Hand

This trilogy is one of my favorites and this last book was so intense and had so many twists, I thought my head was going to explode.

9. Shadows in the Silence by Courtney Allison Moulton

Great ending to a great trilogy. The actions of the main character, Ellie, really helped make this a favorite.

10. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter

First book in the trilogy and it really surprised me. It’s a twist in the usual Greek mythology that will make you love Hades. It was an easy and entertaining read.

  1. EEEEE!! I loved the Unearthly series and was so sad to watch it end… Didn’t Boundless make you want an equally exciting and intense book for Samjeeza’s story too? That generation just has TOO MUCH secrets up their sleeves that we don’t know yet >.< I read The Goddess Test last year but it didn't WOW me, though it's great to hear that you enjoyed it 🙂

    1. Unearthly is one of my favorite trilogies! I didn’t want it to end haha. Thanks! I loved the different twist in The Goddess Test and it was a long while since I read a Greek mythology related fiction 🙂

  2. Oh, I loved Boundless, Indigo Spell, and Clockwork Princess too. So many good sequels this year! I still need to read Perfect Scoundrels- love that series. And Broken Hearts is on my list to read soon 🙂

  3. The Fault in our stars is on my TBR list, along with Cassandra Clare’s series. The Unearthly trilogy could be joining them too! 🙂

  4. I want to read almost every book on this list. I’ve been meaning to pick up Unearthly, but it just hasn’t happened. The same with The Fault in Our Stars and couple others. *shrugs* Great list! (:
