- Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo (5 stars)
- Cinder by Marissa Meyer (4.5 stars)
- Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (5 stars)
I've done a quick scan of the twelve books and decided that my favorite character is Scarlet ! She's strong-willed and independent, which is why I like her. Scarlet is also in one of my favourite OTP's! (wink, wink)
(Scarlet is one of the leading characters from Scarlet by Marissa Meyer, but you've probably figured that out yourself!)
Definitely the Darkling from the Grisha trilogy! He's sexy, has a seductive air about him, and best of all, he's the bad guy! Who doesn't love alluring bad guys?
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo! (The Grisha trilogy #1) A lot of characters were introduced into the story that I eventually grew to love, and also because it's fantasy! I can't resist a good fantasy read.
Also, I love, love, love to read first books in series, because reading the first book is like entering a new world which is mysterious and intriguing. The plot, the ideas, the characters in the story are fresh in my mind and I often have a good time exploring this new world that I've ventured into.

What? You like it too? Oh, goody! Let's be friends!
But how could you not like the cover? I mean, look at it! Everything about it just screams awesome cover! The illustrations are set in a way that makes the book look dark and mysterious, which will easily grab a reader's attention. In fact, the main reason why I picked up the first book, Shadow and Bone, is because I was distracted by its cover!
