Top Ten Tuesday – Week 37

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the bloggers over at The Broke and the Bookish. This week's top ten is:

Top Ten Books For People Who Like The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare

It was tough picking a book for this week's top ten, but I think since a LOT of people have read this one (or if you haven't you NEED to read it!), and so the list begins...

1. The Modern Faerie Tales by Holly Black. Holly Black's books are amazing, and apparently some of her characters or other elements to do with this series appears in Clare's series ;D.

2. The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. Just stating the obvious, okay? If you don't know, this is the prequel series to The Mortal Instruments. LOVE 'EM!

3. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White. Like The Mortal Instruments, this one has a ton of paranormal creatures thrown into the mix.

4. The Darkest Powers by Kelley Armstrong. Likewise with Paranormalcy, there's many paranormal/supernatural elements in this trilogy.

5. The Dream Catcher trilogy by Lisa McMann. This series is dark, and can be quickly read, but SO SO SO creepy. Love all three books :D

6. The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel by Michael Scott. This series can be read by younger readers, but this awesome combination of mythology, history and fantasy will blow your minds.

7. Angel by L.A. Weatherly. I've only read Angel Burn, the first book in the series, but I'm already blown away. It's that good!

8. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. One of the best werewolf series out there. I still need to read the last book Forever. The anticipation is killing me!

9. The Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray. LOVE these books, and they're probably the best historical fantasy I've ever read. Libba Bray is a genius (and hilarious too).

10. ... so many books can go here. But honestly, if you just look on Goodreads, I completely agree with the books categorized in the same list as The Mortal Instruments books. Go take a look there for some more ideas!

That's it for my top ten! Well, rather 9ish...anyway. I seriously need to re-read The Mortal Instruments, because I just won City of Lost Souls the latest one, and can't remember the series. I read the first three books around 3 years ago, so I need to get to them, and read City of Fallen Angels as well.

What's your top ten?


  1. I am embarrassed to say I have yet to read the series. I did just recently pick it up on Nook for 99cents, so it shouldn't be much longer. Great additional suggestions tho.

  2. I feel like I'm missing out, I haven't read this series! Great list of books :)
