  6. Unbreakable is at the top of my list. I am really looking forward to that one a lot. And I have some classic titles on my list as well, because I sort of feel that I'm just really under-read when it comes to them.

    You can see my TTT post here! :)

  7. Love that you have two lists here, bonus points for you.

    I am seeing a lot of Under the Never Sky on people's lists, I will have to check it out.

    I really want to read Unraveling, it sounds really interesting, I'm glad to see you liked it enough to be going back for the second. Lots of good ideas on here!

  9. Oooooh I'm looking forward to 'Through the Ever Night' and 'Requiem'. I saw the 'Fragments' book the other day and thought it sounded like something I might like so I guess I'd better read the first one.

  12. I love how you divided up your list! You have so many great YA sequels listed, and I'm eager to see what tomorrow's list holds!

    I really, really love Tess d'Urbervilles. It's very sad, but if you watch and like Downton Abbey, it goes into the whole conflict between old blood and new money. Masterpiece did a decent version of Tess starring Gemma Arterton.

    I'll be back tomorrow for your other YA top ten list! And I followed you back :)

  17. Through the Ever Night is on my list too, and Requiem is on my unofficial list. The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite books, so I hope you enjoy! It's been a really long time since I read it(probably in need of a re-read), but it was one of those books I stayed up late finishing.

  23. All KINDS of great stuff on your list. Under the Never Sky didn't make today's post, but I'm still planning on getting to it reasonably soon. The Partials series is on my list as well. I'm planning on reading Moby Dick this year (probably starting next month) and I'd really love to tackle Alexander Dumas and War and Peace, though I don't make any promises on those counts. :D THanks so much for visiting my TTT.

  34. I read Northanger Abbey this summer. It's different from Jane Austen's other works - more Gothic - but I still liked it. You can find more of my thoughts at Matched: Reviews and Recommendations. I read Tess for the first time as a senior in high school and couldn't even finish it, but then I re-read it in graduate school and loved it. It's the ultimate coming of age novel and has a little bit of everything plot and emotion wise. Great blog, and Happy reading!

    I also see you put Tess of the D'ubervilles. Good luck with that one. I made the mistake of watching the PBS movie and was too traumatized afterward to want to read it. Probably better to read it first. Oh well, lol.

  66. Awesome list! I hope you enjoy Anna Karenina and Northanger Abbey, I <3 both those books. I've been avoiding Tess of the D'Ubervilles only because I heard what it's about and I don't know if I can handle it. Maybe in a few years I just might get around to it ;) Good luck with the list!
