one
  
Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas

I cannot overstate my love of Sarah Maas.  ACOTAR was fun, but Throne of Glass is where my heart's at.  It killed me a little when they announced there wouldn't be ARCs. 

 //  Goodreads 
two   
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 

The whole Grisha trilogy amazed and inspired me.  Leigh writes like a painter, and her plots are thrilling.  I'm really excited to return to her world.

three
   

The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness 

Chaos Walking was a cheeky, funny series with a decent amount of darkness.  His characters are so heartfelt.  I love the idea of the not-the-Chosen-One theme.     
  //  Goodreads 
four
   

I Crawl Through It by A.S. King 

A.S. King is amazing.  Her books are always innovative, emotional, and written with a gravity that's hard to find in YA.  I'd read a napkin if she wrote on it.    
//  Goodreads 
five
     

Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff 


It's a book written in memos, transcripts, and redacted statements.  I'm not sure how well it'll work, but I'm impressed that they're trying something crazy and new.  

 //  Goodreads

Dead House by Dawn Kurtagich


One thing YA needs more of is good horror.  I've yet to come across one that's truly chilling, not since The Unquiet by Jeannine Garsee.  I've got high hopes for this one. 

  //  Goodreads
seven
  

The Uninvited by Cat Winters 


I haven't disliked anything by Cat Winters yet.  I don't think it's possible.  Her supernatural historical romances are just the right mix of mystery and swoons.  

  //  Goodreads 

eight
   
The Copper Gauntlet by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare 

Oh, how I love this series!  It has the charm of Harry Potter, but it stands well on its own.  Callum is great, and I need to know what happened after that ending!   
   //  Goodreads 
nine
 

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott 


I'm always down for a good fantasy.  Not only has this one gotten some good hype, but I'm insanely intrigued by this "Game of Fives" thing.  

 //  Goodreads 

ten
  
The White Rose by Amy Ewing 

I loved The Jewel, which I got at BEA last year.  It didn't get nearly enough cred.  I'm psyched to see what's next for Violet!

  5. I'm excited for The Rest Of Us Just Live Here, I've never seen that cover though, can't decided which I love more now! The Court of Fives didn't make my list this week but it is in my TBR and I am ridiculous excited for it. Love fantasy and this one looks so good, I'm also totally intrigued!
    I Crawl Through It looks intense and totally emotional but that is what I love in my books. This one is going on my TBR list right now! Thanks for putting it on your list! :) Happy Reading!

    1. I still haven't read Cress because I'm a bad person, but I'm sure Winter will be great. Ooh, I didn't see the giveaway. I have a copy but I'll definitely spread the word.
