Court of Thorns and Roses
By Sarah Maas
When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin–one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.
As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she’s been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow over the faerie lands is growing, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin–and his world–forever.
Have you ever read something so beautiful you cry. That was me literally five seconds into this book. All Sarah wrote was about the snow falling on her eyelids or something. It was so gorgeously written I couldn’t help it. This entire book was epic. In the beginning I thought it was going to be a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, but what I got was sooo much more. Try this series. You will not be disappointed. I can’t wait to dive into the next book (I purposely waiting until they were all out to begin)

The Collectors Society
By Heather Lyons
After years in Wonderland, Alice has returned to England as an adult, desperate to reclaim sanity and control over her life. An enigmatic gentleman with an intriguing job offer too tempting to resist changes her plans for a calm existence, though. Soon, she’s whisked to New York and initiated into the Collectors’ Society, a secret organization whose members confirm that famous stories are anything but straightforward and that what she knows about the world is only a fraction of the truth.
It’s there she discovers villains are afoot–ones who want to shelve the lives of countless beings. Assigned to work with the mysterious and alluring Finn, Alice and the rest of the Collectors’ Society race against a doomsday clock in order to prevent further destruction . . . but will they make it before all their endings are erased?
I have to start by saying there are more books in the series that I haven’t finished yet.
I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH THIS SERIES.
I mean epic idea. I mean who would have thought what Alice and Wonderland was up to years later?
Opening scene: She’s in a mental institution.
HOOKED since that point!
This is a completely original, absolutely amazing, series. I can’t even put it into words. The description, the angst, the feels…
If there is one series you read this year let it be this one!
