  2. Believe it or not, I own books by all those authors, but I have not read any of them! I've even met a few of them. I'll be here hanging my head in shame and digging through by tbr piles. Seriously though, it's a great list and I have a feeling a few of these authors will be on my list next year.

  17. Oh. My. Gosh! I forgot to add Kody Keplinger to my TTT. :( I read her book A Midsummer's Nightmare and I loved it. I need to read Duff! Soon. Very soon. Rainbow Rowell made my list with Eleanor and Park. I'm sure Morgan Matson would have made my list had I read either of her books that I own (Amy and Roger's Epic Detour and Since You've Been Gone).

    I want to read those books by Emery Lord (The Start of Me and You is one of my most anticipated reads) by Paula Stokes and Sarah j. Mass, though I've already started ToG. Fangirl's also on my TBR. I read To All The Boys I've Loved Before.

    1. Definitely read The DUFF!! I think I've read all of her books so far, except maybe the newest one but I've enjoyed them all! Fangirl, Since You've Been Gone, just read them all!

  18. (As you know) I just finished Angelfall. I want to read Throne of Glass soon though and I've heard good things about Stolen Songbird.

    I read only new authors this year, so it was really hard to make my list.
