  1. I loved Incarnate, Graceling and The False Prince! Those were all so good.

    I've been meaning to start Storybound myself, but it just hasn't happened yet.

  5. Of these, I very highly recommend The False Prince and Graceling. Both of them blew me away! I liked Storybound, but not quite on the same level. Incarnate was nice, as well, but I think I'll survive while waiting for the sequel in paperback. ;)

  6. I want to read these series as well. They sound so good & I love the covers. :)

  7. Under the Never Sky is an absolutely incredible series - one of the best I've read!

    My list - http://kristasdustjacket.blogspot.com/2013/03/top-ten-tuesday.html

  8. Almost all of these I have to read too, especially Under The Never Sky, Masque of the Red Death, Alice in Zombieland (they just revealed the cover for the second book!), and Defiance. I just read Legend and it was good! The Graceling series is one of my favorites. I love Kristin Cashore's writing but I know some people struggle with the pace (there is a lot of detail but it comes together beautifully!) Great picks!

  9. Graceling is one of my favorite ya fantasy books. I also read Legend and it was very good. Alice in Zombieland. I enjoyed altough a lot of my friends said they did not like it, I think it's the problem that most people expect Alice in Wonderland retelling and this book is not that. It's just ordinary ya fantasy but with a lot of angst, action and romance so it was quick and fun read.
    The rest of the books are still waiting on my tbr for a chance. :)
    Great list Mel!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Haha, I pretty much want to read all of those too! They all look fantastic! Great list :)

    Here's my Top Ten!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Pretty much all of these are amazing, especially Kristin Cashore! You have so much good reading in your future. Though I will say that if you're excited about Alice in Zombieland for the retelling or the zombies, be warned that it is neither of those. It's a romance novel straight up.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Masque of the Red Death is pretty awesome. None of the others made my list today, but MOST are on my TBR list, lol. Just too many great series out there! Thanks for visiting my blog earlier! Happy Tuesday! :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. I really, really, really recommend Under the Never Sky! It's absolutely amazing. And I've read great things about Incarnate, too!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Great list! I have been wanting to read Legend for a while also, I have heard great things!

  15. Alice in Zombieland and Under the Never Sky are both series I'd like to read at some point!! And Incarnate has a really cool cover!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

    ReplyDelete
  16. I've only read Under the Never Sky, and I loved it. The characters are pretty great!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Legend! OMG loved it and the sequel! I really hope you get to read that soon. Under the Never Sky is another series I absolutely love! Incarnate almost made my list. I need to read those books too. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my post!

  18. Oh yes Mel, I need to read The False Prince and Graceling too!!! Those have come highly recommended to me from so many people but I have yet to pick them up. I fail. I hope you get a chance to read Under the Never Sky and Alice in Zombieland, I loved both of those books:):)

  23. I have Graceling on my list too, really want to read that, have heard such good things about it! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  24. <3 Legend and the False Prince. Definitely start those first. If you've ever read anything by Megan Whalen Turner, you'll love love love The False Prince, and Legend is just plain badass.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I love Graceling, Under The Never Sky and Masque of the Red Death. Legend is great, too. Didn't care much for Incarnate or Defiance, though, and the False Prince is on my list.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Graceling is a great read, I hope you get the chance to read it.
    Happy Reading

  27. Legend, Under the Never Sky, and Graceling are all phenomenal!!! You will LOVE! I have Incarnate and Masque of the Red Death on my shelves I've been meaning to get to as well!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Ha, we should discuss reading Under the Never Sky together. Everyone's yelling at me to read it on my blog! Great list - I haven't read a lot of these either *hangs head in shame*

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You need to read Legend! IT's a great series. I never thought I would like it as much as I did! I have yet to read any of the other series on your list either, but I want to read a lot of them! NEW FOLLOWER
    Check out my Top Ten!

  30. Awesome list. Legend is one of the ones I regret not buying right away and reading. Hopefully I will get to it soon. =] Thanks for sharing and visiting my list. I could have added about dozen more to my list. =]

    ReplyDelete
  31. I just finished Defiance last night, it is pretty good! Worth reading :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOVED Masque of Red Death! One of my favorites from 2012.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yes, yes, yes. You must read The False Prince. It's so wonderful! I want to read Under the Never Sky too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've only read UTNS and I really enjoyed it. Haven't read TTEN though, because A LOT happens and I think I forgot all of it haha. Legend, Incarnate, Defiance, Graceling... definitely want to start those series soon! Love your list :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I want to read most of these, too! I think the only one I have already read would be Defiance - which I wasn't obsessed with, but I guess it's a good pick still, because everyone else was in love with it :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I loved Under the Never Sky and Legend. I really want to read Defiance. Thanks for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I wasn't the hugest fan of Under the Never Sky. I didn't like the insta love and the story was kind of blah for me. But SO many people liked it, so don't listen to me. I hope you get to these series soon.

    Happy Reading.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooo! I really liked Graceling (at least the first book), Legend, Alice, Incarnate, and Masque of the Red Death. I need to read False Prince and Something Strange and Deadly, too!

    So funny how we all read so much but there are always SO MANY MORE BOOKS to read.

  39. Legend twins! I also have Under the Never Sky on my TBR pile, but I'm not as excited about it as other people seem to be. Maybe I should be?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love Graceling and I want to read Legend/Masque of the Red Death!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I haven't read any of these except Graceling and Incarnate, both of which I really loved! I have a feeling you might not like Incarnate but I hope you do. Oh I have read Masque of the Red Death and must say, it was fantastic, definitely one of my all time favorites!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Under the Never Sky was so good, and so was the sequel. You should definitely read that series soon. It was amazing! Here's my TTT: http://www.tumblingbooks.com/2013/03/05/top-ten-tuesday-top-ten-series-id-like-to-start-but-havent-yet/

    ReplyDelete
  43. UNDER THE NEVER SKY (and the sequel Through the Ever Night!!) and GRACELING!!! They're AMAZING!! You should def read those asap :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. These are some really good series -- none of them made my list, only because there are just too many! I hope you do enjoy them though :)

    Thanks for stopping by my post :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd say you could leave Legend alone, I found it to be rather underdeveloped and derivative. Graceling was a very enjoyable read with very compelling characters though!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Graceling series is awesome! Under the Never Sky is pretty good too. I am now curious about the Storybound series. Will go check that one out. :D Thanks for dropping by my post!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Legend and Graceling's really good, but I reco Alice in Zombieland and Under the Never Sky more!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh man- you have some amazing books on this list! I am obsessed with Defiance, Incarnate, and Under the Never Sky. OBSESSED. LOL. Definitely worth reading!!!

  49. I've read the Graceling books and they are awesome.

    Thanks for stopping by and I'll be sure to read those Harry Potter books soon :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. I really can't believe that I forgot about Graceling! I've checked it out a couple of time from the library, but I never got around to it. I have read Something Strange & Deadly, however, which I think is fun. I'm actually annoyed that I have to wait for the sequel, because I'm itching to get my hands on it!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I'm reading the False Prince right now! it's pretty good so far. Incarnate was just okay for me. I want to read Legend, too! Cool picks :)

  52. I've only read one of these--Incarnate--and I really, really liked it. I want to read most of the others on your list. Thanks for sharing and stopping by!

  53. Under The Never Sky, Alice in Zombieland, and Defiance were all great. I love Legend and the Graceling series sounds awesome! Great picks :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I really want to read 'Legend' too! :) I hope we both get to read it soon!

  57. Great list! I haven't read many of these either, but I do hope to get to them in the future, especially UNDER THE NEVER SKY and INCARNATE. I've got GRACELING sitting on my shelf right now, so I'll be reading that one soon. Hope you get the chance to read these, Mel!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I loved LEGEND and TOUCH OF POWER! I have UNDER THE NEVER SKY and INCARNATE on my shelf somewhere (I'm in the middle of cleaning the whole thing out, so everything's in some state of disarray), and you've just reminded me to pick them up :) This is the first time I've heard of THE FALSE PRINCE *makes mental note to check it out later* Great picks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Legend is pretty good! The sequel is even better. :) I hope you can get started on that series soon! I also really love Veronica Rossi's books. She's such a brilliant writer and I'm still thinking about her characters. Great list, Mel!

    ReplyDelete
  60. The only series that you mentioned that I've started is the Graceling series. But I want to read all those others, too! Hopefully we'll both be able to get to all those series soon! Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Agh, I hate it when a comment doesn't work.
    I've only read Storybound out of these and this you'll really like it- it's intriguing, captivating, mysterious, beautiful, fairytaleish and just so wonderful! I would love to hear what you think of it, if you get to reading it, which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND. (:
    I'm really wanting to read the Graceling series, too- I got it out from the library a year or so ago and didn't give it much of a try, but I think I ought to try it again.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I just read The Runaway King yesterday so my vote would be The False Prince (note that it's really good, but The Runaway King is even better!). I liked Graceling but LOVED Fire so I vote for them too. I've read some others but those are the best of those you listed. :) (IMO)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I need to read Defiance and The False Prince sometime soon, too. I loved Graceling and Fire - I think you'll love them. So many good books! Thanks for sharing your list.

    ReplyDelete
  64. There are always so, sooo many series to read that it can get a little overwhelming!! You've picked some good ones. I still really need to read False Prince and Legend and Graceling and Under the Never Sky and this list could go on forever....

    ReplyDelete
  65. Aaaah! You picked so many awesome series, Mel! <3 I really enjoyed Incarnate, and I think you're going to love it too! There are some elements that reminded me of fairytale when I read that book. :) Graceling is lovely as well. The writing is superb. <3 We both need to read The False Prince and Under the Never Sky! I can't get them out of my head, I need to find some time to read them! x) The Gathering Storm has such beautiful setting, and I quite enjoyed it. :)

    There are so many books come out every year, it gets confusing some time hehe. Hopefully we both will be able to read more this year, Mel! <3 :)

    Anyway, LOVE the new blog design! The header and the background? GORGEOUS. <3

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh so many awesome series that you still have to start Mel! I definitely recommend picking up Under the Never Sky, I got through both books so quickly! I also can't wait to pick up Something Strange and Deadly and Masque of the Red Death! :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. I really enjoyed Graceling and I can't wait to get onto Fire, so I hope you enjoy that one. It is lots of fun.

    Like you I want to pick up most of the rest, particularly Under the Never Sky and The False Prince.

    Great picks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I really want to read the Incarnate series and I have read book one of the Graceling series and Under the Never Sky, but haven't continued on to the other books yet. I really recommend Graceling if you like high fantasy. Great list!

    ReplyDelete
  69. I LOVE the cover of Masque.. it was a pretty good read. Definitely looking forward to the sequel. :) I still have to read Legend too.. :D

    Thanks for stopping by on Tuesday!

  71. Storybound is such a great book! I am so excited for book two coming out in April!

    Thanks for stoppin' by!

    ReplyDelete
  72. I didn't do this meme - but my list would be exactly the same! I need to start all of these already! Especially I have no excuse for Under the Never Sky and Masque of the Red Death, I've had them forever! I would also add Anna Dressed in Blood and The Mortal Instruments series!

  73. I really enjoyed Alice in Zombieland. I loved the take on Zombies and Alice was more fierce than I expected. And plus - the cover is gorgeous.
