    1. I needed some adorableness on this list, no?

  2. So much overlap! I only did 2013 books, or SOMETHING LIKE NORMAL would've been on my list too, but THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US, FANGIRL, and THE BEGINNING OF EVERYTHING all were!

    1. Ahh! Those three were amazing! And nah, I just did books I read in 2013, including books released in 2014 and 2012 and before. I cheated a little xD

  3. I think it's high time I bought This Song Will Save Your Life. It sounds so good! I also had Etiquette & Espionage on my list -- such delightful writing!

  4. YES YES YES to FANGIRL, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US, and THE FAULT IN OUR STARS. I finished CROWN OF MIDNIGHT last night and am currently in a hangover (bookish) because of it (please tell me you're Team Chaol). CRESS is sooo good. I still need to read a bunch of these. Great list, and Happy New Year!

  5. I see we share a couple here. Great list. You have a few others that are on my TBR list too. We have very similar tastes except I just do not read contemporary very often. Happy reading for this next year!

      TFiOS was just...wow. I can't believe I waited so long to read it. Same with TDBU!

  7. I've read and loved My Life Next Door and Losing It, but they didn't make it to my list. The Distance Between Us is on my list too, and most ofd these books are on my TBR like Fangirl and Etiquette and Espionage.
    Happy New Year! :D

  9. I only read a few on your contemporary list, probably should make a point of checking the rest out in 2014. Your Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Paranormal is fantastic! Lovely list! Happy New Years Lili :)

  13. I've read so few of this, I'm kind of ashamed! YESSSSS, Cress! Such a great book, I read it in one sitting! I can't wait to try Fangirl and This Song Will Save Your Life, both of them sound awesome, and I loved Eleanor & Park so hopefully Fangirl will be a win.

    Happy New Year!

    1. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED! No, I'm kidding ;) haha

      They truly are both awesome. I can't wait to read ELEANOR AND PARK next year, so we're backwards in that sense!

      happy New Year, Amber!

  15. Great haul! Lots of amazing books on your list - This Song Will Save Your Life, My Life Next Door, Champion and These Broken Stars made my list too. I really want to read Of Beast and Beauty and The Winner's Curse. Great picks :) My TTT.

  16. Great choices. This week was an especially good year for contemporary :)

  17. I totally loved all your contemp choices except for Also Known As (which was cute but not love feelings) and The Summer I Became a Nerd (which actually really annoyed me).

    BIG YES to Cress and The Bitter Kingdom and The Winner's Curse. Of Beast and Beauty, A Darkness Strange and Lovely, and Crown of Midnight were also great. A couple of the others I was a bit black sheepy about, sadly.
