'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

6. Legend - Marie Lu 

7. The Iron Fey Series - Julie Kagawa

8. Wither - Lauren DeStefano 

9. Shadow of Night - Deborah Harkness

10. Touch of Power - Maria V. Snyder

I could list so many, it's awful! Although, they look beautiful sat on my shelf :).


  1. A couple of those are on my shelf as well, like Legend. So many books, not enough time to read them all!
    Thanks for stopping by!

  2. It's only a problem when they start taking over every available space in your home. Not that I would know anything about that ;)

  3. Half of those are sitting on my shelf as well, so you're in good company. Thanks for visiting my TTT.

  4. Ahahah you better snap on The Casual Vacancy too Leah!! Ahaha your comment on my blog made me laugh. I hope you enjoy it when you get a chance to read it! I've heard really good things about Anna Dressed in Blood. I feel like I might freak myself out if I tried to read it, but I hope you'll like it!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog!
    Savindi @ The Streetlight Reader

  5. Oh Oh OOOOHHH I just got The Casual VAcancy too! I feel like its been a long time coming and am kind of sad that it took me almost a year to get it...but hey I finally got! I'm looking forward to reading your take on it!

  6. I'm sitting with The Iron Fey and Anna Dressed in Blood. Fun reading this post even though I'm not part of the meme this week.

  7. Oh man, I highly recommend The Archived - it's my favorite book so far this year. Legend and the Iron Fey books are awesome too.

    And Splintered is on my list as well! I wanted it so badly when it came out, and then... no idea how it got shoved to the back burner.

    Nikki @ There were books involved...

  8. Great List. Casual Vacancy and Shadow of Night are on my TBR list. Legend is a good book!

    Chelsea @ Starbucks & Books Obsession

  9. Legend is pretty great, as well as Wither :D

    - Juhina @ Maji Bookshelf

  10. Totally understand -- my list could have included hundreds of titles (I'm really not even exaggerating!). It's sad. But, you're right, at least they look pretty all lined up on my bookshelf :)

  11. I've only read Splintered (you should really try and read it soon... although whether you read it or not it's so pretty on the shelf... lol). The rest I've had my eye on but not bought... yet. :)

  12. All on my TBR pile except TCV, already finished it and loooooved it so much, it's great! Enjoy them all! :)

  13. Splintered, The Archived, and The Iron Fey are all excellent! Hope you get to them soon! Thanks for checking out my post!

  14. Splintered, The Archived and Anna Dressed in Blood (basically the only ones I've read from your list) are amazing! I hope you get to read them soon!

  15. I have The Archived sitting on my shelf too. I do agree that they look beautiful on my shelf too, I am just kicking myself that I am so far behind. lol. It is never-ending. =] New Twitter Follower. =]

  16. I really liked Soulless, the Iron Fey series, and Legend. I've read the first All Souls books, but still haven't gotten to Shadow of Night either. Thanks for sharing!

  17. I have all of these on my tbr or waiting on my shelf.
    I read legend, which was good but now I need to buy Prodigy. And I read both books in Healer series. Both were great reads.
    Thanks for stopping by my TTT. :)
