  1. Awesome lists, with awesome books! I LOVED The Selection, The Hunger Games, and Grave Mercy, as well as The Selection and Shiver! I really want to read Divergent, Cinder, and The Immortal Rules, because they look completely awesome. I own City of Bones and Mystic City, so I'm going to definitely read those soon. Thanks for sharing!! :)

    My Top 10

    1. Thnanks :) I hope you get a chance to read all of those because they are freaking AWESOME!

    2. I agree with Jenn! I hope those books make it to your hands soon!! They are incredible reads you don't want to miss :D Making this list was so incredibly hard!!! I could have easily listed 20 more. Thanks for sharing your top 10 with us!!

  2. Awesome picks, ladies! I was going to pick some to comment on, but there are so many! I did really love Croak (still have to read Scorch), The Hunger Games, and The Selection.

    1. I hope you enjoy Scorch just as much! I still can't believe I waited so long to read them! I loved The Hunger Games, but not as much as so many other books this year! The Selection was pretty awesome too!!

    2. I have yet to read Croak, but it is on my list for next year. I really loved almost all of the books on these lists. The Hunger Games (first book) is probably among my absolute top three.
