1. Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent
I read this series because of the wonderful Rachel from fiktshun and her awesome job of advocating for Tod Hudson during the YA Crush Tourney. As you can probably tell from my background, I can't get enough of Tod. "If I Die" is my favorite book in this series so far and that's why I chose it's cover. I am so happy to have read these books and to be re-reading them again as part of the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge (which you can find out more about here). You could almost say I'm "mildly" obsessed with them...
2. Escape From Furnace by Alexander Gordon Smith
Another series I started because of fiktshun. The thing that first grabbed me, was this amazingly creepy cover. Then after I had read Rachel's review for it, I knew I just had to read it. It's just so dark and disturbing. It draws you in and won't release you until you're done. I can't believe how my chest still keeps tightening when I'm just thinking about these books...
3. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I cannot pinpoint a certain blog for this one. All I can remember is seeing this cover on pretty much every blog I visited. In the beginning, I was a bit worried. I tend to think books/movies can get over-hyped and so I wasn't sure whether to give this a try or not. Obviously, I decided to read it and I haven't regretted it for a second. I love the characters, the world, simply everything about it.
4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
It has been well over a year since I have started this series, so there is no way I can recall which blog I saw it on first. I know there were a few. The thing I found really intriguing about this series was the different take on vampires and their society. Of course, I also got sucked into the love, heartbreak, and everything else that came along with it. Adrian will probably always have a special place in my heart.
5. A Touch Mortal by Leah Clifford
This is another one of those wonderful books I discovered through fiktshun (What can I say? It's my favorite blog out there.). I love, love, love the world Leah has created. I especially have a soft spot for Gabe... By the way, there is still time to vote for ATM's Luke for Villain of the Year. You can do that right here.
6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Again, I'm not sure what blog got me to pick up this series. It is an incredibly powerful story. Katniss is definitely one of my favorite heroines out there. This book made me laugh and cry and feel all sorts of emotions. I am hoping to read it again soon.
7. The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
I feel so bad having to say "I don't remember" again... I do remember though when I first heard about it, I wasn't sure if it would be for me - the whole cheerleading thing almost turned me off. I tried it anyway and was pleasantly surprised. It's such a refreshing and funny read. I really want to read it's sequel "Queen of the Dead" but haven't had the chance to pick it up yet.
8. The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine
Another amazing series about vampires. Rachel Caine did such an incredible job, coming up with this plot and her twists and turns are unbelievable. It's one of my favorite vampire-related series for sure.
9. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
10. The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
