Any of these books topping your lists for 2014? Any of them new to your TBRs?


  1. Gah, yes, the ones I've read of these are so. Freaking. Good. Can't wait for everyone else to read SEKRET, SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY, and THE BREAK-UP ARTIST! And yep, I'm pretty much dying for the rest of them.

    Others I can't wait for are POINTE by Brandy Colbert, OF SCARS AND STARDUST by Andrea Hannah and BETWEEN by Megan Whitmer (I read early versions and they were already amazing - OF SCARS AND STARDUST is beautiful and chilling and BETWEEN may have made me laugh out loud more than any other manuscript I've read), and SOMETHING REAL by Heather Demetrios. Plus, I have to give a shoutout to OPEN ROAD SUMMER by Emery Lord, which has the best YA friendship I've read in a good, long while.

    And thanks so much for the BtS shoutout! Thankfully it'll no longer be coverless come Tuesday!

    1. Oooh, I'm so excited to hear that you loved SEKRET, SIDE EFFECTS MAY VARY, and THE BREAK-UP ARTIST! I am definitely pining for those so it's always good to hear positive things!

      I'll definitely have to check out the other ones you've mentioned. I absolutely love the title of OF SCARS AND STARDUST! I can't believe I forgot to mention SOMETHING REAL, that one sounds so good! I love the idea behind it. And an amazing friendship? Sign me up! Adding that to my TBR right now! Thanks for all the suggestions, Dahlia!

      And I'm so excited to read BtS! And a cover already? That's fantastic! I'm off to go check it out right this minute! :)

  2. Wow! Thanks for including Alex Wayfare on your list. *feels honored* Hope you enjoy!

    1. My pleasure! I'm so excited to read it; it sounds so original!


I'd love to hear what you think!
