My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows

Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi

Illuminae, Gemina and Obsidio by Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff
This series along with the Lunar Chronicles was that kind of series I was 100% sure I’m not going to like but wanted to read anyway because people raved about them. I’m very happy I did because I loved them so much! It was unique, dramatic, romantic and so much fun to read!
