Tune in tomorrow for more categories and more favorites!


  1. UNRAVEL ME is so freaking good. LOVE IT and can't wait for IGNITE ME! I loved ELEANOR & PARK too!

  2. I sort of feel like I snubbed both UNRAVEL ME and SIEGE AND STORM today, but I ended up going with THROUGH THE EVER NIGHT and CROWN OF MIDNIGHT for those categories. I should have just chosen all of them! You've got a great list here, and of the ones that I've read, I totally agree with your picks. :-)

  3. I really need to read Prep-School Confidential! It's been getting a lot of love today!

  4. I kind of forgot Unravel Me was a 2013 book and not 2012. Thanks for the reminder—I can think of one category it'll win for me this week.

    Thanks for joining in! :)
