  1. I am so conflicted over Delirium. Another series, where I was happy overall, but a little disappointed in the ending. *cough, cough - Divergent* I really adored the Graceling books. The second one was the strongest for me, but they were all great. Great list. I hope you start a few of them soon.

    1. I know what you mean, I'm torn about it but I'd still like to try it. Thanks Sam!

  2. Great list! I haven't read the Mistborn series yet either and keep thinking I should, but I'm not sure if Sanderson's going to be for me. I loved the Inkworld books when I was younger, they still have a very special place in my heart, and I really enjoyed Delirium, too - however, I really didn't like the second two books in that series at all and I think Delirium actually works well as a standalone, that's just my opinion, though. =)

  3. I've read Delirium- but that's it for this list! Delirium (first book) ends on quite a cliffhanger but after I actually finished reading the series I found myself wondering why I was so addicted to it.

  5. I cannot recommend the Kate Daniels series enough. Those are books that I can read over and over again. I also really enjoyed the Red Rising series. Hope you get a chance to read these soon!

  6. I just read the Name of the Wind and thought it was amazing! Even though it's long it's a super quick read and it lives up the hype. Also, Red Rising is one of my favorites and can't recommend it enough. Hope you get to enjoy them all!

  7. Ooh Graceling. Never did read those. And I kinda want to read the Delirium books as I tend to like Lauren Oliver's stuff.

  9. I love Inkheart so much. It's the kind of book I wish I had had around as a kid. I think I would have fallen completely in love with this world. I hope you get a chance to read it soon!

  10. Ooh, there are a few series on here that I've read and loved. His Dark Materials is fantastic! My favourite in the series was The Subtle Knife, the covers are always so pretty too! The Kingkiller Chronicles is fab too. The Name of the Wind is one of my favourite books of all time now, I flew through it! Mistborn was on my list too, so snap! We will get to it eventually!

    Happy reading. ^.^

  11. I can't recommend Red Rising enough, brilliant series! I absolutely fell in love with it! Great list :)

  12. I liked the first Inkheart book but not the sequels. I read the Dark Materials trilogy but didn't enjoy it much especially books 2 and 3. I DNFed Delirium. I did read and like the first Kate Daniels book but for some reason never continued with the series which I hope to do at some point.

  16. Inkworld was on my list this week too! I read the first Graceling book and wasn't impressed, but hopefully you'll like it better.

  18. Omg -- The Song of the Lionness! I wish I could say 'my childhood' but I read it when I was in my young adult years...it was brilliant!

  19. INKHEART! Big fan! At least I was as a kid -- can't wait to reread! The only other thing I've read from this list is Delirium. Wasn't massively blown away; I didn't continue the series.

    I'm suuuuper keen for Sanderson and Rothfuss. Also Tamora Pierce. Songs of the Lioness is the favourite book of one the girls I went to Kenya with, she brought it with her to read when we arrived (as a familiar friend, I think -- same way I brought Rom&Jul!). Unfortunately her copy grew mould while we were there!!! It was VERY battered though -- she'd read it more than 30 times, she said!
