  1. The Crown of Embers was my favorite in the Fire and Thorns series. I almost listed Crimson Bound (the cover is beautiful by the way) too. I need to read the Mara Dyer series, I don’t what has prevented me from doing so.

      the cover for crimson bound is amazing. I can’t decide if I like the cover better than Cruel Beauty’s or not! I’m so excited for that sequel though. I really, really enjoyed the first book so I need to get back into it and read the whole thing

  2. Now that I see your list, I realize that I never did finish the Sally Lockhart books by Philip Pullman. I think I’d have to start over at this point, but I do want to read the rest eventually! I finally got a copy of the 1st Flavia de Luce book, and I’m looking forward to reading it. I really didn’t like Fathomless… but I’d love to hear another viewpoint on it. 🙂

      Same here cos I read book 1 back in 2011, but it’s okay because they are quite short books so it wouldn’t take a lot of time to re-read the first one!

      oooh Flavia de Luce. I read #4 first and loved it, then I went back and read #1 and it was also really good! I hope you enjoy it, it seems like a strong series.

      I enjoyed Sweetly more than Sisters Red, so I’m hoping I like the third book as well

      • I think part of my problem with Fathomless was that I didn’t realize it was part of an ongoing story — I thought it was just a stand-alone fairy tale themed book (although I probably wouldn’t have read it at all if I’d known it was part of the series). I really liked Sisters Red, and though Sweetly was just okay…

      • thebookheap says:

        yeah! I read sweetly around a year after sisters red and I hadn’t reailsed they were connected until the very end when they brought up the topic of the Fenris again- I was like oooh okay, so there is like an underlying arc here. Very odd!
