5. Velvet by Temple West
6. A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas

  1. I hear a lot of people don't like The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, but I read the first one and really enjoyed it. I never got around to the rest but hope to eventually one day. I still have Truthwitch on my shelf to get to which is sad considering I bought it on release day. Great list.

    1. Really? That's so sad! That series is what got me hooked on Stiefvater originally! I love their story, but I'm sure for some there's not enough action in the plot, especially compared to what happens in the Raven Boys. I hope you get to finish the series one day soon Barb because it is fantastic! book 2 is possible my favorite of the 3.
      And Truthwitch is really good but the hype is a bit much! People went crazy over the ARCS and when I got my finished copy signed on release day by Susan Dennard at an event and started reading it, I was expecting huge things. Liked it, but not an all star for me!

  4. I need to read Stardust (saw the movie but want to read the book)- also the graphic novel version with artwork by Charles Vess is supposed to be good- and Truthwitch is one I want to try.

    1. The book is cute! It's definitely Gaiman's style and it reads like an old fairytale but that's why i love it! and the movie is great as well! Reminds me of The Princess Bride.

  5. The only one of these I've read is ACOTAR and I wasn't overly keen, but both Snow Like Ashes and Truthwitch are on my TBR, so hopefully I enjoy those more.

  6. I've been loving seeing everyone's take on this week's TTT theme! And you picked a good one. The Mortal Instruments... so much love for that series. I hear so many people say they prefer TID over TMI but not me. TID trilogy was great to be sure, but I was all about TMI. I couldn't get enough Jace. :) And ACOTAR... YES!!

    1. I liked both! I honestly don't have a favorite out of the two, but it was certainly interesting reading TMI and then TID because of the connections! and the time period change was odd and took a bit of adjusting but SO COOL! i loved it1
      thanks for stopping by Tanya!
      and i second your sentiments on Jace. I just watched the last episode of this season of Shadowhunters on Freeform and OMG did not want it to end! the new Jace has grown on me:) although I still adore the guy from the original movie
