      Glad you liked ACOTAR too, Chrissi 😀

    Fantasy is my go-to genre. I absolutely love it and can never get enough. For Darkness Shows the Stars is one of my favorite books, I adore Elliot so much. The Girl from Everywhere was a great debut, I can’t wait for the sequel. Great list this week!

      It’s my go-to genre too! For Darkness Shows the Stars is one of those books that have an amazing title, cover, and content; I loved it!
      Thank you and have a wonderful week 🙂

    I thoroughly enjoyed Ruby Red! A Court of Thorns and Roses is on my TBR, but I keep passing it up and I’m not sure why because I absolutely loved the Throne of Glass series.

      I adored Ruby Red! Time travel is one of my fav subgenres so I pick it up a lot 😀 Oh you should defo read ACOTAR. I really, really enjoyed it and I hope you do too 🙂

    I liked Eragon too. But I thought it went downhill after Eldest. I enjoyed Throne of Glass, so definitely going to check out a Court of Thorn and Roses, once I get caught up with the Throne of Glass series.

    • Jinan April 12, 2016 / 2:36 pm

      Really? That’s interesting, because I thought it got better after Eldest! Brisingr is my fav book of the series! Hope you like ACOTAR, Jamie 🙂

      • Jamie Wu April 12, 2016 / 4:15 pm

        My friend thought Brisingr was the best too. I remember being disappointed when I finished it when it first came out. Maybe I should revisit it some time.

        Thanks, hope I can get to it sometime soonish.

        • Jinan April 12, 2016 / 6:32 pm

          If you ever revisit it, I hope you’ll like it more!

    • Jinan April 12, 2016 / 2:37 pm

      Hope you pick some of them, then! Thank you and have a wonderful week 🙂

    I’m a huge fantasy fan and kiiind of EVERY ashamed that I haven’t read Eragon yet. EEEK. What’s wrong with me?!?! That’s like THE classic YA fantasy of them all right?! (Plus dragons are awesome so I really really should read it.) 😄
    Here’s my TTT!

    • Jinan April 12, 2016 / 2:54 pm

      Oh Cait you totally need to! It’s one of my fav series ever. Dragons are effing brilliant 😀

  6. Jolien @ The Fictional Reader April 12, 2016 / 4:04 pm

    I loved Paladin by Sally Slater, so I’m so glad to see someone else talking about it! And I do love Eragon as well. Yay for fantasy! Great list 🙂

    • Jinan April 12, 2016 / 6:17 pm

      Paladin just doesn’t get the love it deserves, right? Thank you and hope you have a lovely week 😀

  7. Kate @ Midnight Book Girl April 12, 2016 / 7:26 pm

    I’ve always liked Fantasy, but I’ve been reading a lot more the past couple of years. I’d definitely recommend The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss, it’s one of my favorites.

      so many people have recommended that one to me but I’m so intimidated by its size. Maybe one day soon!
