Please tell me I’m not the only person affected by the Daylight Savings time. I feel as if I’ve slept for 10 hours, but I didn’t.
Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. Today’s theme is backlist titles. I don’t think I need a prompt to remind me that my TBR pile can easily kill me if it wanted to. 😂 But here are my top 6 picks of books and series I want to read. I hope you enjoy!
Rebel of the Sands Series
Romance, defiance, rebellion, and magic. SIGN ME UP! My friend Dana recommended the entire series, and for a good year, it’s sat on my TBR list. But I can’t resist another jinn-themed storyline though. I also can’t turn down beautiful covers. I’m vain, people.
Tower of Dawn
I’m so worried about the book. Chaol was, and may somewhat be, one of my favourite characters, but the way he treats Aelin in Queen of Shadows is hard to move past. I hated how his storyline turned out, but I need for him to have a redemption arc.
The Dragon’s Wing
Tate introduced me to reverse harem, so I can’t forget to mention her in this list. I absolutely loved her debut series and have thought about binge-reading the rest of it.
Bright We Burn
For months, I’ve avoided the book. You see, I somewhat glossed over the entire thing when it arrived, so I know what happens. However, I need to finish the series. I never thought I’d root for Radu though.
Wintersong was my highly anticipated read of last year. And while I loved it, I feel I rode the blogger wave of loving this book and not critiquing it properly. Because of the mixed reviews for this one, I’m just worried I won’t love Shadowsong as much as the first.
How can I possibly skip this glorious series? It has the Darkling in it! Okay, I screwed up by reading Six of Crows before Shadow and Bone. But I’ll get to this series before King of Scars. Or I hope. Please remind me if I don’t 😂

Great list! I haven’t read any of these books, but I do want to read the Grishaverse books. Happy reading!
The Grisha trilogy!!! It’s not everyone’s favorite, but I think it’s a must to better understanding the world of Ravka and all the greatness that is sure to come with the King of Scars duology!! Great choices this week! I hope you get to then soon!
Give me a vote on what you think I should start with on my post this week! I did an acrostic of “My Backlist” to help narrow down my options lol! Check it out here: http://bit.ly/2D6yrjL
Time change definitely hit us hard! We had such a wacky Monday! I’d really like to read the Grishaverse books! I’ve heard such wonderful things!
My best friend bought me a signed/personalized copy of Bright we Burn but I haven’t read the first 2 books in the series yet and really need to. I have And I Darken on my owned-tbr shelf ffs
I kind of skipped the Grishaverse books and read Six of Crows. I heard they were better? Still not sure if I’ll pick them up.

I heard the opposite. Some people liked SOC more than Grishaverse.
I bought the series, but it’s still sitting on my shelf. 🙈
The Grisha trilogy is pretty good, though I still thought the first book was the best of the three! But wow, those are some gorgeous covers, I don’t think I’ve ever seen those editions!
I absolutely loved And I Darken, but I haven’t read the sequels yet – I have no idea why! XD I also need to get around to Shadowsong; I adored Wintersong.
I’ve heard amazing things about Rebel of the Sands and Six of Crows.
My TTT post!
