  1. Great choices! I really enjoyed the Lunar Chornicles as well. Sadly I haven't read ACOTAR yet but it is on my list!!

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean, if it wasn't for my friend who was kind enough lend ACOTAR to me, it would probably take me months to get to that book :) You’ve got some interesting choices, I don’t know any of them!

  2. I am yet to read most of these, some of which are on my list as well! ACOTAR is one I forgot but really want to read.

    1. Have a lot of fun reading them! At this moment fairy tale retellings are my favourite genre, I just can't get enough of them!

  3. I think I'm going to have to break down and read Cinder & Beauty lol. So many people are recommending them! My TTT list

    1. At first I was hesitant to read them too, but now I am really glad I read them! I hope you enjoy them! And wow, I only know one book on your list, I will definitely need to check those others out sometime!
