    Something Strange and Deadly

    and i can't wait for others in this list for 2013

  2. First time on your blog...such a cute title and header.

    I enjoyed reading your list. I really have to get to Shadow and Bone. Everyone is raving about it.

  3. Such an awesome list! Pushing the Limits and Easy were my two most favorite books this year! Looking at your list I have a lot of amazing books still waiting on me! I'll start with Legend! I bought it a few weeks ago! I haven't started it yet because I hope I love it just as much and I want to include it in my 2013 favorites list! (haha, I know, so childish!)

    Happy 2013!

  4. Awesome list! I really want to read Love at First Sight, Easy, Pushing the Limits, Venom, and Divergent. But Shatter Me and Daughter of Smoke and Bone were awesome, I agree! :)

  5. I loved a bunch of those up there! Especially Insignia... A couple others that I really loved are:
    the Delirium series, Legacy Of Tril:Soulbound was amazing, Reached and Clockwork Prince. And Shatter Me, which I think you had up there. Sierra
    Keep growing beautiful!

  6. wonderful list of books so many of them are on my TBR list <3 cannot wait to read Cinder, Incarnate and venom

  7. Great list! My TBR has exploded since I stared reading these end of year posts! Adding Falling Kingdoms and Divergent (how have I not read that yet??!!) to my list!
