Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and Bookish. This week is a freebie so I thought I'd share my top ten conclusions to series that I MUST HAVE NOW. (I'm sure you'll be able to relate to at least one:))

1.Clockwork Princess-  alright, is there anyone who's NOT dying to get their hands on this one?? Cassie Clare is a literary genius and if you have not experienced it yet than I would like to know WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? Go get Clockwork Angel NOW. While obviously I look forward to the solution to the war against Mortmain, let's just be honest here and say it all comes down to WILL OR JEM?? Will Jem even survive?? Release date: March 2013

2. City of Heavenly Fire- 1 word. JACE. JACE JACE JACE. Wherefore art thou, Jace? GOD I LOVE THIS BOY. Ok, enough about Mr. Hotty-Pants. I'm salivating for this one because I ABSOLUTELY WORSHIP these characters. Izzy is the most kick-ass heroine that exists in YA in my opinion, Simon and Alec are heart-breakingly sweet, and Magnus is MAGNUS . While I do think Clary acts like the damsel-in-distress more often then not, I've been liking her more and more as the books progress. Unfortunately this one doesn't have a cover yet:/ Release date: March 2014

3. Perfect Scoundrels- I adore every one of Ally Carters books, Heist Society even more than the Gallagher Girls. They're just so realistic in a fantasy kind-of-way and so HYSTERICALLY funny and have the most lovable characters (hello? Hale? Gabrielle? Simon? Angus?) I anxiously await Perfect Scoundrels because I just can't wait to hear how Kat's story ends!! Release Date: February 5th, 2013

4. Beautiful Redemption- If you've read Beautiful Chaos (and survived the cliffhanger) you don't need an explanation. If you haven't, all I can say is pick up your copy of Beautiful Creatures pronto. This one is out already and I really need to get my hands on it!!

5. The Council of Mirrors (The Sisters Grimm book 9)- This series is middle grade, but its among the best out there. Its about all the fairytale characters(+Shakespeare ones- Puck is AWESOME) come to life in a little town and as you can imagine, a lot of trouble gets stirred up there on a regular basis. So it's up to the sisters Grimm, descendants of the brothers Grimm, to sort things out. This book is the last of the series (t was released this May, I think) and I reeeaaaaalllly want it. Now.

6. Requiem By Maggie Stiefvater- Oh, how I love her writing. This is the third and final book of Lament and Ballad and unfortunately no cover or release date yet:((

7. Hidden- Cassian or Will? I loved this series and can't wait to read Hidden. It's such an original spin to dragons that you can't put it down. And what a gorgeous cover!!!

8. The Last Guardian (Artemis Fowl book 8)- Again, middle grade. But I bet you can't read these books with straight  face. I dare you. LEPrecon may be the cleverest joke I've read since the Weasley twins. (You'll get it when you read) (Fine. maybe it's not that funny to everyone else. But it gives me tears of laughter) . It's suspenseful and adventurous and completely GENIUS. I can't wait for this one. In fact I might get my butt to a bookstore as soon as I'm done for this one.

9. Nevermore- It would seem I'm in a middle-grade mood today. But grrrrrr I want this book bad. My friend ordered it and we waited like crazy and when she went to pick it up it turns out the store worker heard "evermore" and not "nevermore" and ordered the wrong book. While I agree with most of the reviews that I've seen that this series has gone downhill, I'm still really excited for the ending.

10. House of Hades- I'm gonna cheat on my subject a little 'cuz this one isn't a conclusion but it's at the top of my MUST READ OR DIE list. I love Rick Riordan. Percy Jackson is s close as it gets (in my eyes) to Harry Potter. He's like my best friend and reading about him in the Heroes of Olympus series is a little nostalgic pinch to the heart. WHEN OH WHEN IS THIS COMING OUT??? (October 2013)

So that's it folks!! If you like what you see/read here please follow and/or leave a comment! Happy Holidays:)

  3. Heck year to Clockwork Princess and City of Heavenly Fire. I have only read the first Sisters Grimm, but I know someone who was waiting impatiently for book 9, and when she read it this spring, she was very satisfied with the ending.
