    I would have to add The Archived by Victoria Schwab from this years list of my reading. I would also be accused of being a suck up, oh well. Also This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers, I like the focus on characters, the zombie bit just a bonus. Something completely different, hard to explain, but loved Glory O’Brien’s History of the Future by A.S. King.

    Thanks for your suggestions – I’ll be exploring it.

    Everyone recommends Mistborn, guess I have to check it out!

  4. Love seeing Sabriel on this list! It is a longtime favorite of mine that I’m happy to see getting some recognition again. I definitely need to check out some of the others on your list though – I keep having Mistborn and Horns recommended to me, but I haven’t picked them up.

    I really really loved These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.
    Also really enjoyed For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund.
    And, of course, the Lockwood & Co. series by Jonathen Stroud.

    Will definitely check those out! I’ve been reading “Mistborn” and it’s definitely all consuming. I highly recommend “Ordinary Magic” by Caitlen Rubino-Bradway and “Conjured” by Sarah Beth Durst!! I read these recently and have been recommending them to everyone, haha.
