Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
As you can see, we have ONE book in common – Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor. The Daughter of Smoke and Bone series is absolutely amazing, if you haven’t read it, you can read Sash’s review here.
But there is something else the majority of our books seem to have in common: they are the last book in their series. The Last Battle, Raging Star, Ignite Me, Dreams of Gods and Monsters, and Champion. Perhaps this is a coincidence, or maybe we just like a good (not always happy) ending.
- Raging Star by Moira Young
The Dustland trilogy is one of the grittiest YA trilogies out there. It’s raw and real – seriously, absolutely ZERO sugarcoating.
- The Last Battle by C.S. Lewis
The ending of The Chronicles of Narnia is one of the BEST possible endings EVER. And this series as a whole is a favorite of Sash’s.
What a FUN alternative universe for what happens to Oz after Dorothy leaves (hint: she comes back and is EVIL!). Say what!
- A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin
- Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor
Laini Taylor’s last installment of her Daughter of Smoke and Bone series came out in April, and you’d better believe that BOTH of us immediately got a copy. Her writing is beautiful, the story is beautiful, EVERYTHING about this book (and series) is beautiful.
Though this came out at the end of 2013, Em started reading it in 2014 – WHY DID SHE WAIT SO LONG. It’s seriously..so good.
- The Maze Runner by James Dashner
A boy’s POV and so thrilling – we can see how this one definitely got made into a movie. Hope it does well at the box office!
- Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi
Another GREAT ending..(maybe this Top Ten Tuesday should have been “Top Ten Endings” for us..) but SO GOOD. Warner..Adam..Hubba hubba.
- In the End by Demitria Lunetta
Em loves this world and was SO excited to read before it comes in June 24th, 2014!
