Once hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, it is now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. It’s a weekly book feature where a topical list-prompt is posted and readers respond with their top ten for that prompt.
And yes, I am a solid week behind. I’m hoping maybe one day I’ll catch up.
Chain of Gold (basically anything Cassandra Clare)
Sorry, I know this is a mighty unpopular opinion but I’ve just never been able to get myself on the wagon with this universe. I get curious every once in a while but I’m not convinced making it through the series is worth it.
Gilded Wolves(on my shelf)
I’ve heard such a mixed bag of reviews on this one. Some people say it’s the bee’s knees, others say it’s a Six of Crows knockoff. (Ouch, ya’ll.) I will probably get around to reading it some day.
Crown of Feathers
I’ll be getting this one with my next OwlCrate but I don’t know, the plot sounds a bit hokey to me. My first thought about people riding phoenixes is “ow, are things burning?”
This one has an intriguing plot but it also sounds just so freaky. I just don’t know.
I love Renee Ahdieh’s books so this one I’m optimistic about. That said, I don’t know if the YA world needs another vampire book. I’m just about vampired out so it would have to be really good.
I’m one of those Maas trash people so I will be getting this book either way. However, I was really let down by ACOFAS so this is the chance to start a new thing. If it sucks, I’ll probably be done reading Maas.
House of Salt and Sorrows
I just started an ARC of this one the other day and so far it’s….okay. I usually like fairy-tale retellings but I haven’t been pulled in yet.
Ugh, another ARC on my TBR that I haven’t gotten to yet. I have seen reviews calling this book really dark and somewhat disturbing so I’m pretty apprehensive.
Three Dark Crowns series
Everyone seems to be crazy for these books and I just don’t get the hype. It’s just one of those that doesn’t intrigue me enough to start the series.
Smoke in the Sun
Here I am, saying I’m a huge Renee Ahdieh fan but there is one exception: Flame in the Mist and its sequel. For me, Flame in the Mist was a huge miss. I just didn’t connect to the characters emotionally at all, so I don’t really care what happens from here on out.
