1-KING’S CAGE by Victoria Aveyard: I really didn’t like GLASS SWORD, but I got back into the series with KING’S CAGE. Victoria Aveyard addressed some of my biggest issues in the latest installment of the RED QUEEN series.
2 & 3-THE HATING GAME by Sally Thorne and SUMMER SKIN by Kirsty Eagar : I rarely read straight-up NA or romance, so I wasn’t sure if either of these books were going to work for me, but Lauren suggested them, and I couldn’t resist their charm. They’re really different stories (one is set in college, one in workplace), but both are written by Aussies, and both are hate-to-love stories.
4-LADY MIDNIGHT by Cassandra Clare: After reading nine Cassie Clare books, I was unsure about starting yet another book about Shadowhunters, but wow I loved Emma and Julian’s story. I also love that Jem and Tessa make an appearance (I’m one of those weirdos who loves Tessa and Will AND Tessa and Jem, mostly because I know Will and Jem would understand).
5-SHADES OF MAGIC trilogy by V.E. Schwab: I didn’t read the first two books until after the middle installment was out, because I just didn’t know how I felt about the whole magic and multiple Londons thing. Then I started reading, and I was blown away.
6-THE FORGETTING by Sharon Cameron: Again, this book sort of fell through the cracks, and I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, but in the end, I thought it was a great dystopian adventure/romance.
