I can only imagine reading John Green and Markus Zusak back-to-back. That's definitely a recipe for a book hangover if I've ever heard one! :)

Love your list!  Good luck continuing all those series.  (Legend, Hunger Games, The 5th Wave.)  I hope you like We Were Liars as well as the rest of us, but I think that will only happen if you're able to go in blind.  Have you been able to avoid spoilers?

Oh, I love The Assassin's Curse and The Pirate's Wish.  I actually have The Wizard's Promise on hold at the library, and I'm really excited to pick it up and get my Cassandra Rose Clarke fix.  :)

Also, I've noticed that a lot of lists mention Markus Zusak.  Many people have read The Book Thief, but nothing else.  Would you be interested in doing a read-along of I Am The Messenger?  No pressure or anything, but if you are then let me know!  I'm thinking of hosting something like that.

I love what you say about The Giver.  I think a lot of people go back and forth on whether they would rather have love or peace, if they had to choose between the two.  It's a difficult question, and so well presented in this book.  It's short, but a really powerful story!

Thanks so much for the nomination, Andie!  I'm honored.  
PS- All hail the chocolate frog.  :)

I really enjoyed The Glass Casket, and, of course, the Lunar Chronicles are awesome.  I've seen some negative reviews for Stitching Snow though, which makes me nervous.  I'll still probably read it, but I'm a little apprehensive.  I'm looking forward to hearing what you think about all these!

I loved Graceling and Under the Never Sky.  The Darkest Minds has been on my TBR list for a while now, I really should pick that one up!  Also, every time I see that Patrick Ness cover I die.  So, so pretty.  Great list!

I was so happy when I found out that Marie Lu was writing a new book!  This one sounds really good, too.  Kind of like Graceling meets that TV show Heroes.  Looking forward to reading it!

Great picks!  So glad to see so many classics on your list!  I love that 1984 cover.  So eerie and mesmerizing.  I really like the cover to The Goldfinch as well.  I just checked that book out of the library - didn't realize how big it is!  I'll still read it, but good grief that book is HUGE!  Oh well, at least the cover's pretty!  :)
