TTT: Book Series I’m Thankful For

toptentuesday

Hello loves and Happy almost Thanksgiving Day! I’m super excited for some family and food time. This year I’ll be cooking Filipino Spaghetti with plenty of Filipino hotdogs… Yummm!!! Filipino spaghetti is one of my favorite dishes and it’s absolutely delish!! It’s sweet, savory and so cheesy.

Anyway, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is – Books that have touched my heart and left me feeling so thankful that they exist. Honestly, I’m so thankful for EVERY book I have whether I’ve read them or not. Books are magical in every way… at least they are to me, so I decided to pick  10 book series that have left wonder and magic in my life.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by  The Broke and the Bookish.


 

Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

I will always be thankful that this series exist. Not only were these books so easy and fun to read, but they’re also what got me back into reading again. If that’s not magic, then I don’t know what is.

The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer

I’ve mentioned this over and over, but this series is absolutely AMAZING. I love fairy tales in general and these retellings…. so wonderfully done. Kickass female heroines, charming and lovable “princes,” enthralling world building, suspenseful storylines, and insane plot twists make this series one epic and magical roller coaster ride!

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Hunger Games is a fun and entertaining series, but also very brutal and heartbreaking. There were plenty of moments that just made me angry and upset. But what’s magical about this series is — it also made me hope and inspired me to always do the right thing no matter how hard that may be.

The Young Elites Series by Marie Lu

Marie Lu is one of my favorite authors and this series made me ache so much, but in a painfully wonderful way. Not only is there actual magic in the series, but the writing, the characters, the story, the themes and literally everything else were incredibly mesmerizing.

Doon Series by Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp

I love this series so much. The writing is flawless. The pacing is great. The friendships are goals. The romance is swoony and cute. The adventure is magical. The suspense and conflict are well written. And just EVERYTHING about this series is just undeniably wonderful.

Shatter Me Series by Tahereh Mafi

This series is so utterly beautiful and fascinating! From gorgeous writing, perfectly flawed characters, and thought-provoking themes, this series is just pure magic! So thrilled there are 3 more books because… WARNER!!! I cannot wait to spend time with my boo again.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han

There’s something really magical when books can make my heart full of happy. This duology turned trilogy is one of my favorite YA contemporary romance. It’s ridiculously adorable, quite nostalgic, and absolutely heartwarming. It’s filled with many sweet moments that made me reminiscence and gave me those warm fuzzy feelings.

The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

While I haven’t been caught up with this series, I’m definitely a huge fan of all the magical creatures. Not to mention the books also has plenty of action, suspense, humor, and romance.

The Selection Series by Kiera Cass (Trilogy)

I have a love/hate relationship with this series, but if I’m going to be really honest… I definitely have more LOVE. And the FEELS with this series — just fantastic and wonderful in every way!

Starstruck Series by S.E. Anderson

This series is well-crafted, hilarious, and outrageously fun! I think it’s pretty magical when books can make you laugh out loud and this series definite did that!

 


Have you read any of these book series? What did you think of them? What are some books/book series that you’re thankful for? Don’t forget to leave your comments down below!

  1. This list is amazing!!! The Lunar Chronicles, Hunger Games, and City of Bones FEED MY SOUL!! I love them so much. And I definitely know what you mean about having a love/hate relationship with the Selection series because, same. But how could we not love something filled with so much angsty drama?? 😂

    I’ve never heard of the Doon series! I’ll have to check it out!!

    • Thank you!

      Not too many people know about the Doon Series, but it’s one of my favorites. I first saw the book on Bookoutlet and thought wow that cover is gorgeous. I read the synopsis and decided to buy it. I actually didn’t even start reading it until the final book came out cause I wanted to binge it. If you love great friendship dynamics, gorgeous settings, magical worlds, romance, humor, suspense, action, and a lot of sweet moments, then I definitely suggest you read this series…

      Oh and it’s also in the production to be a T.V. series. Not much details yet, but the author said sometime late 2018 or early 2019. =)

  2. I’m afraid I’ve only read about half of these but the others are definitely on my want to read list.

    I too have a bit of a complicated relationship with The Selection but think I’m more on the hate side than love. America just drove me nuts with her indecisiveness and I think the author could have done more with the world/terrorist type stuff. Have you read any of the books after the original trilogy? I actually kind of preferred them.

    • I did read the books after the original trilogy. I liked them a lot too and Eadlyn is better than America in a lot of ways. I actually didn’t find her as “annoying” or “bratty” as everyone else did from some of the reviews I’ve read. But the romance aspect was a bit ehh for me… I was expecting there to be more FEELS or built up. Just so difficult to compete with Maxon haha. I loved the family dynamics though and it was really nice to see some of the other characters too.

      Overall I preferred the original trilogy because I couldn’t stop reading them and Maxon. But The Heir and The Crown are pretty awesome too! =)
