The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer-Such a great series!

Have you read any of these books?  If not, which ones are you most interested in?


  1. I really want to read Stalking Jack the Ripper! It sounds like a great book 🙂

  2. I’ve read the Six of Crows duology, loved Six of Crows, enjoyed Crooked Kingdom but not quite as much as Six of Crows.
    My TTT:

  3. Happy New Year, here’s to new treasures in 2019!

  4. I’ve heard amazing things about the Six of Crows duology but I keep telling myself I want to finish the Grisha trilogy before moving on to those.

  5. My Lady Jane is a brilliant book, so much fun. Six of Crows duology are on my top favourite books. Great List!

  6. I haven’t read any of these books yet, but I hope to read the Grisha Verse books this year (first) so I can read the Six of Crows duology after that. I got the Lunar Chronicles when they were on sale on Black Friday, so I have those to read too!

  7. Awesome list! I need to read My Lady Jane and Stalking Jack the Ripper. I’ve heard so many wonderful things about those books. Happy New Year! 🙂

      Yes, I kept hearing great things about them too and finally got around to reading them. Better late than never!

  8. So glad you ultimately loved the Six of Crows duology. I stand by the hype for that one. And My Lady Jane is such a fun read. Hope you have a wonderful 2019!

  9. Here’s to a great year of reading in 2019 then!

  10. I’m glad you tackled the Lunar Chronicles. Amazing series. Happy New Year!

  11. I hear amazing things about My Lady Jane. I need to get on that and just read it already! 😀 Amazing list!

  15. So many great ones on your list! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  16. I keep saying I’m going to read My Lady Jane someday! I hope I’ll be able to get to it in the new year. Also I can’t wait for King of Scars! Have you read the Grisha trilogy before that? Or have you only read the Duology?

  17. Great list!
    I’ve read My Lady Jane, The Lunar Chronicles and Stalking Jack the Ripper. Enjoyed all of them.

  18. I LOVED the Lunar Chronicles!!! It’s one of my all time favourite series for sure!!
    The Six of Crows duology and My Lady Jane have both been on my TBR for a while, I think it’s about time I bump them up the list because I keep hearing about how amazing they are and I am so excited!!

    Happy Reading!! <3

  19. I’ve heard a lot about My Lady Jane. In an effort to read more YA this year, I hope to check it out soon. Nice list!

  20. Stalking Jack The Ripper is sitting on my TBR shelf right now. I’m glad you liked it. Happy 2019!

  21. Loved My Lady Jane, too! The second one wasn’t as good for me. Hope you enjoy it, and thanks for stopping by my TTT!

    • Poinsettia says

      You’re welcome!

      Yes, I’ve heard that the second one isn’t quite as good. I’d still like to give it a try though.

  22. Nice list! I still need to check out The Lunar Chronicles. They just sit on my kindle waiting. Ahh!

  23. I really need to read My Lady Jane and Stalking Jack the Ripper! Those are two that I have a feeling I’d really like, and I own them, I just haven’t gotten to them yet. Soon I hope! Glad you were able to find such great books in 2018!

      Thanks for visiting!

  24. Six of Crows is so great! And I have been hearing such good things about My Lady Jane. I might need to keep my eye on that for the retelling reading challenge.

  25. I’ve heard amazing things about Stalking Jack the Ripper and Six of Crows! Both have been on my TBR for so long! I also keep seeing My Lady Jane pop up so maybe I should give that a go too?!

  26. Great list! I seriously need to read Stalking Jack The Ripper soon, it sounds amazing!

  27. I’m always glad to see Six of Crows duology on a ‘best of’ list! Mostly since it deserves so much of the hype and accolation.

  28. Glad to see the ‘Jack the Ripper’ novel and the ‘Six of Crows’ duo on your list!! Both have been on my shelf for a while, so maybe in 2019, I’ll give at least one of them a chance. 😀
