    1. YES. Just thinking about it makes me happy.

  2. What!!!! THE FAULT IN OUR STARS didn't make your list?!?! I'm speechless. But seriously, great list.

    1. OK, confession: I have yet to read The Fault In Our Stars. I own it, I'm SUPER excited to read it, but I just haven't read it yet. Partially because I've been reading review books, but also because--as silly as this may sound--I'm savoring the anticipation. When I read it, I'm sure it'll be on the list. :D

  3. I love Looking for Alaska, Paper Towns, If I Stay and Where She Went. I'll definitely be checking out the rest of your list, I have Jellicoe Road, and I'm thinking it's going to be my next read after Fever!

    And The Fault In Our Stars is totally worth the wait, I'm impressed you have the willpower to have saved it this long!

    Thanks for stopping by! :D

  4. Oh we have quite a bit of overlap on our lists! I just got Jellicoe Road from the library today and am very excited to read it. I also really want to check out Saving June. Thanks for the list!
