  1. I just finished INCARNATE, it was fantastic! Great list!

  2. Across the Universe is one of my 2011 favorites books! I'll have to check the others(:

  3. I haven't read any of these books, YET! But I belive you! :) Great list Anna! ;)

  4. I've read all of these except for four books: Incarnate, Adoration, Across The Universe and Silver Phoenix. I've got some good times in store, I guess.

    If I had to add in an author or two -- I'd recommend Robin McKinley and Diana Wynne Jones.

  5. I've only read ONE book out of all the awesome ones you listed here and that's Graceling. You can be rest assured that I shall attempt to remedy that and read some of the books on this list soon!

  6. I need to broaden my horizons with the sci-fi because I've only read Incarnate and The Adoration of Jenna Fox and LOVED them both.

  7. I love you blog! I've only read Cinder out of that top ten, but will hopefully read many of the others sometime!

  8. I've been wondering about Inside Out and Outside In, I have them on my reader and havent gotten around to them yet. I loved her Poison Study Series though.

  9. Great list! I love SF a bit more than Fantasy, so all of your SF list I've either read or have on my TBR list. And I have your picks for fantasy on my TBR list, too, except for Silver Phoenix and Brightly Woven. I'll have to check them out!

  10. I love that Brightly Woven is on your list. I loved so many of these books and the ones I haven't read I really need to get around to that soon.

  11. I feel like this list was made for me! I don't particularly like/read either genre. I do really want to read Graceling/Fire ... actually I want to read most of those. I have only read Brightly Woven and I loved it, that should have told me something!

  12. PROPS for Cinder and Jenna Fox, both awesome. Across the Universe is happening this year! I've had a copy for a while and just always manage to push it further down the pile! And despite being a big fantasy reader, you managed to remind me of 4 that I haven't read yet, although I have copies of them all! I'm rectifying that, too! Great list, Anna!

  13. I haven't read any of these but the majority of them are on my wish list. Hope to get the chance to read them all soon.

  14. Cinder is next in my TBR pile! :)

  15. All of these I either read and loved, or are in my TBR pile, in fact I just picked up Cinder today. I hadn't even heard of Silver Phoenix before though. It sounds fascinating, and I always appreciate having more multicultural reads on my radar.

  16. I haven't read any of these but Tempest and Across the Universe are on my list!

  17. Love The Adoration of Jenna Fox. Mary E Pearson is really sweet too. ;) I also have an ARC of Cinder that I really need to get to. Great list! :)


  18. Beautifully Woven was, well, beautiful. I actually DO recommend it to people. All the time!
