  1. Oh oh oh HEIR OF FIRE. I think Crown of Midnight might possibly be my favourite Maas book BUT IT'S HARD TO DECIDE, OKAY?! She just writes so so amazingly. I also want to finish the Shadow & Bone series because the first book was just brilliant. :)

  2. I also have the Throne of Glass and Grisha series in my TTT, I just love them! I also have The Queen of the Tearling on my bookshelf and can't wait to get to it. I think I'll have to add The Inheritance Cycle to my wishlist, it sounds like a great series. Happy Tuesday! x

    1. RIght? I don't know what I'm going to do with myself once Queen of Shadows comes out. I will probably scream and cry and run around in a circle after I'm finished with it!

  4. The Inheritance Cycle is one of my all-time favorite series too, but I didn't include it because I read it earlier than 3 years ago.. The same goes for Harry Potter. I just read Heir of Fire -and ADORED it- and the Vampire Academy series and Maybe Someday are some of my favorite books too. And Shadow and Bone!

    This year, I want to read the Queen of the Tearling and Wizard's First Rule. They've been on my to-read list for a while and I'm in a fantasy mood :D

    1. Ah, both of those are such phenomenal books. Terry Goodkind's writing just kept me guessing. I never thought the books were all that predictable and so the twists always took me by surprise. My favorite in the series so far is the 2nd one (Stone of Tears, I think) and oh it was amazing despite the fact that it's a 1000 page book I think I read it in the span of a week.

  5. Heir of Fire - DUH. I can’t with that book. I’m really, really terrified for Queen of Shadows because WHAT IF IT’S BETTER but WHAT IF IT’S NOT??

    Maybe Someday hurt my soul. Such a good book <3

    Okay honestly I’d really like to reread the Eragon books. I never finished Brisingr, I think? I can’t even remember anymore! But I know I haven’t read Inheritance. So yeah… maybe should put that on my “books to read” list this year.

    1. I KNOW! I'm so scared!!!! I honestly don't see it being worse than Heir of Fire. I feel like every book, SJM just keeps getting better and better. The only thing I'm super scared about is if we don't have any Rowan and Celaena moments. Ugh because I ship them soooo hard!!!

      Oh girl Maybe Someday WRECKED me. That and her other book Ugly Love. It's a toss up between those two books. Ugh so amazing.

  6. I really need to get reading some of these. The only series I've read in its entirety is Harry Potter. And of course I've read the first Throne of Glass book. (I was a stickler for the rules, so I went with favourites of the past three years for my TTT. If I would've done all-time favourites, my list would've been a lot different!)

  7. I just got Maybe Someday from the library but I have yet to read it. I did love The Queen of the Tearling and of course Heir of Fire! :D

  8. I forgot to do TTT this week!
    I definitely would have put the Throne of Glass series on there though. Crown of Midnight is my favourite so far, but I haven't read Heir of Fire yet. I really need to read the Grisha series too.

    1. Oh girl. Heir of Fire will wreck your soul. It's heartbreakingly wonderful. I feel like rereading it for the third time it's just so dang good. Oh and the Grisha tril is amazing too!

  9. HEIR OF FIRE and all of the Harry Potter books, for sure. I'm also happy to see the Pendragon series represented! I read all ten books in, like, two months - which was super impressive since I was in college, double majoring. I need to reread those ones!

    1. YES! Another Pendragon fan, I take it? I love that series with all my heart. The first book was one of the books that really got me reading a lot as an adolescent. I actually just got to meet him this past weekend and it was one of the best experiences! AH!
