Top Ten Tuesday

Like every other week Tuesday comes around and that's today! The best thing about Tuesdays is the weekly meme hosted by the awesome bloggers of The Broke and The Bookish. What is this Top Ten Tuesday thing? Well they give a topic and other wonderful bloggers pick their top ten relating to that topic and link back to The Broke and The Bookish. Today is Top Ten Books for People Who Liked X Books. Let's get onto the show.

Top Ten Books for People Who liked Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

 10.)Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
 There may not be faeries, but there are elves :) I absolutely loved this series both as a book series and as a movie adaptation.

9.) Wings by Aprilynne Pike
 If you thought Wicked Lovely was good, but are looking for something a little lighter you should try Wings. BTW rumor has it this is being turned into a movie!

8.) Bitter Frost by Kailin Gow
 This book stays with the faerie theme, but has a slightly different take. If you enjoyed The Iron Fey series as well, this is a series for you.

7.)The Shadow Reader by Sandy Williams
 The Shadow Reader is unlike any faerie book I've read. It leans more to the fantasy side and is about a college student who has the Sight.

6.)The Iron King by Julie Kagawa
 The Iron King is the first book in the highly read series of The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa.

5.)Need by Carrie Jones
 Pixies aren't quite faeries, but they're close enough. This is an action packed series with some great romance and Norse mythology mixed in.

4.)Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning
 This is an amazing series that takes place in Ireland and delves deep into faerie lore. This is also an adult series...so mature readers only.

3.) Glimmerglass by Jenna Black
 This trilogy is about a girl who is a faeriewalker. She can navigate between the worlds of the fae and humans. I will say that even though I loved this series I was a little disappointed in it.

2.) Bones of Faerie by Janni Lee Simner
 This is an amazing and highly underrated book. The worlds of fae and human clashed and no one was left untouched. I would call this a post-apocalyptic dark faerietale.

1.)Tithe by Holly Black
 This is one of my favorite books of all time! It's dark and beautiful just like Wicked Lovely!

***I must say that numbers 9,8,7,6,5,4, & 3 all have love triangles. Some people are sick of them, but I love the (as you can tell)***

So, what do you think of the list? Have you read any of these? Do you have anymore faerie books to suggest?


  1. Great list. I adore fey books. :)

  2. Loved The Iron King, and I want to read glimmerglass too!
    I love reading everyones TTT's I really need to get back into writing this meme!
