  1. Yes finally someone else who loved Matched! I really loved that book and the rest of the series! x

  2. I read The Raven King last year and loved it! I still have Three Dark Crowns to read, so I'm glad to see you enjoyed it.

  3. Have you read all the three books of Matched? I kinda liked the first but overall I didn't look the trilogy. And you liked Bloodlines! I really liked that series, definitely more than Vampire Academy.

    I've been meaning to read Three Dark Crowns and Obsidian but I haven't gotten to them yet. I should soon!

    (This is Iridescence from light up the shining night stars :) )

    1. I have only read Matched so far, but I have the rest of the series on my TBR list. I liked the Vampire Academy series, but my favorite character was Adrian, so I am really enjoying this series since he has a larger part.

  4. Three Dark Crowns was so good. I can't WAIT for the next one. Want to see where that story goes. :)

    I did read Matched, and I didn't realize If I Stay had a sequel I guess. nice list.

    1. Where She Went is told from Adam's POV and takes place about three years after If I Stay. I think it may have even been better than the first, which I gave 5 stars as well.

  5. Three books on your list are on my TBR, haha. This gives me an extra motivation to read them! :)

  6. Looks like you've read some amazing books this year! :-)

  7. Looks like you've read some spectacular books so far this year!!

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week:


  8. Yesssss to Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake

  9. Fantastic list! I loved Where She Went, Evertrue, and Matched. All great reads!

  10. Great list! I loved Obsidian! I need to read the rest of that series soon!

    Here’s my TTT!

  11. I like your choices! In some I finished the series in others I need to start the books!

  12. I love that you haven't touched a new release this year and are instead focusing on all the backlist titles! That's what I tend to do, too (with a few exceptions). I loved Where She Went. Getting Adam's POV was priceless. And Obsidian... sigh. The Lux series is my favorite paranormal series ever. I have such a love for Daemon Black. Ultimate book boyfriend. LOL Great list, Jacque!

  13. I enjoyed so many of these and am thrilled to see them on your list. Where She Went, Bloodlines, The Raven King, and Obsidian for sure. Have a few of the others on my TBR waiting to be checked out.

  14. Great list. I have Three Dark Crowns on my TBR this year, really looking forward to reading it.

  15. Where She Went! I love Adam so! I'm super bummed they didn't decide to continue with the movies and make this one too since it's even better than If I Stay. The Bloodlines series is really good too! I binge read them all together and loved them!

  16. I remember when I read Where She Went! I loved it soooo much! I cried buckets at the end, it was so so so good! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

  17. I still need to read Where She Went (I liked If I Stay a great deal MORE than I thought), and Ally's series. Also, Three Dark Crowns sounds really interesting. :)

    Thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.
