  1. I loved the Parasol Protectorate and Twelve Houses series.

    There are several other books in the Twelve Houses series; I wasn't sure if you knew this or not. The other books are The Thirteenth House, Dark Moon Defender, and Reader and Raelynx.

  2. Oh, and Blameless, the third book in the Parasol Protectorate series, is also out.

    Thanks for the tips! I've actually read all of the Twelve Houses and Parasol Protectorate series, but I decided that two pictures per series was all my poor blog post can handle.

    I'm glad someone else loves these as much as I do!

  4. Nice list. Haven't heard of some of these. I read Graceling too, but didn't love it for some reason....

  5. @Kristin Rae

    I can definitely see some people not loving it -- it's one of those books that, for whatever reason, not everyone will love. Glad to see that we can discover new books together!
