    Thanks for some suggestions. I have only heard of the first one- And I didn’t know it was i a series?

      After the Maze Runner is The Scorch Trials and then The Death Cure. I think they did 2 prequel books as well. Can’t remember what they were called.

    I’ve read through most of the (really large) Discworld series and I can vouch that it is a good read.

  3. The Maze Runner was just meh. The first book was good but the sequels were underwhelming to say the least. Illuminae was fantastic! The sequel Gemina gets into the politics of the situation a little more and I loved it! Nevernight and the Darker Shades series are on my list to be read soon as well. Oh. And Mistborn. Because I’ve never read Sanderson. Gasp! I know I’m awful! Lol

    I was going though your list thinking Ink Heart needs to be added to this list if he hasn’t read it yet. Excellent series with a fascinating concept. One of those books that makes you want to write fan fiction, without stealing her characters. You just want to follow the rules of her world. And I never write fan fiction.

    The Maze Runner…hmmm read Divergent or Hunger Games instead. Maze Runner reads like a weak cousin.

    I can’t find the right place to start Discworld. I’ve read book one. It left me curious because I understand other books are better, but I can’t say I loved it. I started to listen to another one on audiobook and I keep forgetting I’m listening to it. It’s not grabbing me. I don’t know. Too many people swear by them, so I’m trying.

    We just picked up the Mistborn series for my son. I think I’m going to steal them and read them too.

    Yes, you should read Brandon Sanderson’s books! He’s my favorite author. 🙂 I would start with the first Mistborn series, though–while Elantris is still good, the Mistborn series is even better. Brandon Sanderson is amazing at coming up with awesome worlds and magic systems that interact with the plot.

    I’m also planning on reading the Great Library, Illuminae Files, and Shades of Magic series! I have Ink and Bone checked out from the library…just need to read it now. Currently I’m reading the Six of Crows series and rereading some other books as well.

    I absolutely recommend Shades of Magic and The Great Library! The last book is coming next month so not much waiting time involved, too 🙂
    I don’t really recommend Maze Runner but I do suggest people see for themselves. Discworld is one I’m super excited to start! Just don’t know when…

    Ok that’s a bit dramatic … but I hated the series. I listened to the books as audiobooks because I loved the first Maze Runner movie … you are going to be SHOCKED how much the movie added in order to be exciting because the books are so lame omg.

    I mean … you might like them … but I did not (obviously)

    Nevernight is on my list too

    And what are you even doing with your life that you havn’t started Illuminae or THE LOVE OF MY LIFE SHADES OF MAGIC?!

    I hope you enjoy all your reads <3

    This is a great book list! There are definitely a few on here that I just recently discovered and added to my TBR or that have been on there for a while. I Am Number Four was kind of slow for me, but I’m hoping with everything already set up in the first book that the next one will have a slightly faster pace.

    I know I already said this… but… You HAVE to start reading the I am Number Four series. It is just fantastic! it took me a few years but the last book was released until last year so… hence why it took that long. It is amazing, I enjoyed it so much, and I almost died when it ended haha (too dramatic) XD
