Legend - Marie Lu  

I love having my heart ripped out, and I've heard promising things. Plus, it's MARIE FREAKING LU. It's really rather embarrassing that I haven't read it yet. 

Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard 

Yeah, I know people are really mixed on whether this is good or terrible, but I feel like I really need to try it out. I love a good villainy antihero. 
The 5th Wave - Rick Yancey 

My cousin loved this one and told me to read it. Like, three years ago. Oops. 

Percy Jackson and the Olympians - Rick Riordan 

Besides the fact that everyone else adores it, it contains everything I love. Greek mythology! Strong female characters! Important friendships! Sarcasm! 

The Summoner - Taran Matharu 

One of my blogger friends is obsessed with this, and it sounds really action-packed and up my alley. Plus, give me all the magic! 

The Bone Season - Samantha Shannon 

Even the name sounds like something I'd like! This one always gets so much praise. Sci-fi about the criminal underworld? It's like Firefly in book form! Or something. 
The Queen's Thief - Megan Whalen Turner 

I suck for not reading this. I should really have my fantasy fan card revoked. I can't tell you how many people have bugged me to read this (*cough*Christina *cough*Shae*) but I'm a stubborn mushroom. 
The Iron Fey - Julie Kagawa 

I love faerie stories! And Julie is so cool and makes the most delightful dragons. There are just so many books, it's intimidating. 
The Young Elites - Marie Lu 

Poor Marie Lu has just been languishing on my bookshelf. I'll read Warcross in time to review it, and then I will make myself make time for her, because she's the sweetest most awesome human! 
Lumatere Chronicles - Melina Marchetta 

I could keep going on forever with series I need to read, but I'll stop here with another oft-recommended fantasy series. (*whisper*I haven't read any of her books yet don't hate me). 

Your turn!  What series have you been putting off since dinosaurs roamed the earth?

  1. I knew I forgot some. The Legend and The Young Elites should have made my list as well. Oops.
