2. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater

3. Linger by Maggie Stiefvater

4. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

5. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

6. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

7. Matched by Ally Condie

8. Tangerine by Edward Bloor. This is a re-read of a book that I bought back when we first moved to Florida.

9. Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen – this is a re-read of a favorite book.

10. Wither by Lauren DeStefano

11. Divergent by Veronica Roth

12. Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

13. These Things Hidden by Heather Gudenkauf

14. The Irresistible Henry House by Lisa Grunwald

15. Ballad: A Gathering of Faerie by Maggie Stiefvater

16. Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

17. The Runaway Jury by John Grisham - Read this book awhile back but it is one of my favorite John Grisham books. I have read quite a few by him and may re-read a few more. If all you have seen is the movie and thought it totally sucked (which it did... sorry John Cusack) try the book. The premise totally changed in the movie which goes to show how much influence certain companies have over movies and television even today.

18.Trapped by Michael Northrop - This book is really a hard one to review. I loved loved loved it. Until I didn't. I have a hard time recommending it except to say that I was quite happy that I was reading it on hot summer days and am glad that this type of weather I will most likely never see again in my lifetime.

19.Lament: The Faerie Queen’s Deception by Maggie Stiefvater - Ah Maggie Stiefvater ... it has been your year as far as my reading goes. The one thing I screwed up on was that I didn't realize that Lament was the first book and Ballad was second. When Ballad was on sale on Amazon I quickly swooped it up and inhaled the book. It was a good read on its own but makes so much more sense when reading Lament first. I highly recommend all of her books but this one was just amazing. It was fascinating and suspenseful and hey, it had bad ass fey in it so I'm all for it. Possibly my second favorite book of the year. :D

Currently Reading
To be determined

Taking a break from
Fallen by Lauren Kate

Two Kisses for Maddy by Matt Logelin I really do need to finish this book but fictional sad is easier to handle at the moment then reality heartbreaking so I’ve moved this book to the Taking a break from category for now. I do intend to finish it this year. (We’ll see what happens.)
