    hiyahey!​

    So I’ve recently found myself in the need of new reading material recently. I’ve completely exhausted every series I’ve started so far this year and there are only one or two series I’m interested in buying at the moment, but they won’t last me forever. I’m curious if anyone had any YA/adult recommendations and/or would like to talk about books. Book memes are also welcome, just make sure they follow the rules and have a spoiler warning just like books. c:​

    Some of these series aren’t completed and still have books in the works, but I have read all of what exists from their current volumes. A lot of the series listed here also feature explicit content. If you chose to post about a book, whether listed here or one you have read, please make sure your comments abide by the rules and remain PG. With that said, here’s the list:
    -
    Throne of Glass series - Sarah J. Maas
    Catwoman: Soulstealer - Sarah J. Maas
    A Court of Thorns and Roses - Sarah J. Maas
    The Mortal Instruments - Cassandra Clare
    The Infernal Devices - Cassandra Clare
    An Ember in the Ashes - Sabaa Tahir
    Six of Crows - Leigh Bardugo
    The Edge of Everything - Jeff Giles
    Warrior Cats (all series) - Erin Hunter
    Passenger - Alexandra Bracken
    Lunar Chronicles - Marissa Meyer
    Red Queen - Victoria Aveyard
    Snow Like Ashes - Sara Raasch
    Folk of Air - Holly Black
    Three Dark Crowns - Kendare Blake
    Shatter Me - Tahereh Mafi
    And I Darken - Kiersten White
    Embassy Row - Ally Carter
    The Diabolic - S.J. Kincaid
    -
    There are certainly a lot more I don't remember, but these are just a few off the top of my head.

    IT IS ALRIGHT TO HAVE SPOILERS, JUST PLEASE PUT A SPOILER WARNING AT THE TOP OF YOUR POST WITH WHAT BOOK YOU ARE DISCUSSING!

    A good young adult series I generally like is the Effigies series. It’s mythological, fantasy, but quite a page turner. It’s been Sarah Raughley is the author. The first book is titled, “Fate of Flames”. It’s thrilling, action-packed, and a hint of romance in between chapters. I think you’d enjoy it but that’s what I generally like. (The series is ended, only containing three books.)
    All the book series you’ve finished are pretty good though. ;)

    Idk if you already read One of us is lying, but I recommend it and there is a second book. But I don't know if that makes it a series. Probably not. But it's good.

    Also, if you run out of series to read, I also like to take on those reading list challenges for the year. Here is one I am currently doing.

    A super good one I'm reading for an English project is "The Future of Us", and it's very well written. It's about these two kids who just gained access to AOL, but it turns out to be their future selves on Facebook. (Keep in mind, this is like 15 years in the future from when the story takes place..)
