    • I would HIGHLY recommend all of them but especially Anna and the French Kiss, Jellicoe Road, The Program and Pivot Point.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • Where the Stars was really really good! I love Doller’s writing style. And because I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t say it, you need to read Anna and the French Kiss like yesterday. It is the perfect summer reading book that just makes you feel good.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Shatter Me is on my list as well because it is BEAUTIFUL. I love that you can open to any random page of a book by Tahereh Mafi and find at least five lines that give you goosebumps because they are so gorgeously written.

    Anna is lovely too, and hearing that you adored Parallel and Where the Stars Still Shine makes me even more excited to pick them up.

    • Shatter Me really was so beautiful. I almost didn’t read it which would have been a shame.

      Thanks for stopping by. Hope you like Parallel and Where the Stars as much as I did.

  2. So many favorites here! Anna! Jellicoe, and I love love your blog header even though I’m a Yankees fan. 😉 I’m glad to also see you liked Trish Doller’s new book so much! I haven’t read it yet but I can’t wait!

    • What, a Yankees fan on my blog?! 😀 Just kidding. Thanks for the compliment on the photo. Tried to be different. And Doller’s book is definitely worth the wait. It’s really great.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. I’m so happy to see Where the Stars Still Shine on your list! I have a copy and I need to read it. I loved SLN so much!! Also, I apparently need to read Jellico Road, The Program, Parallel, and In Honor, all of which are sitting on my shelves to be read. And Pivot Point was just awesome. Kasie West is definitely an auto-buy author now! Great list!

    • Yes you do need to read all of them! Start reading all the books! HA. Seriusly I devoured all the ones you have on your to read list. I would highly, highly recommend them.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    • They are both so good! Give Jellicoe sometimes to get into. It isn’t a read you jump right in and understand. That is the best tip I can give you on that.

      Thanks for the return visit.

  4. I really need to get to Pivot Point (especially after the wonderfulness of Distance Between Us!) and Parallel. I’m still on the fence with Jellicoe Road. I know everyone loves it but it was just so hard to get into when I tried it last.

  5. Lots and lots of good books on this list. This is really an A+ list. Funnily enough, I’m about to get In Honor from the library today. I read Golden and loved it so much. I saw they have In Honor at my library and am so excited now.

    • I’m going to save you a whole lot of time and trouble…PICK IT UP NOW AND READ IT! It is the perfect summer feel good book. I have read it so many times because of how it just makes me have all the book feels. DO IT. 😉

      Thanks for stopping by.

  6. I’m glad to hear the Elite is a great read! It’s in my TBR pile right now and I can’t wait to start after that horrible cliffhanger from The Selection. And yes! Anna and the French Kiss is like amazing beyond words! So glad you enjoyed it!(:
    My TTT

    In Honor made my list as well and Pivot Point has been my favorite debut so far. I hope to read Where the Stars Still Shine sometime this year – hopefully I enjoy it as much as you did!

  8. Ahhh, most of these are still on my TBR list! I’m going to have to move a few up, especially Pivot Point, The Program, and Parallel. And I can’t wait to read Where the Stars Still Shine. Great picks this week!

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT 🙂

    • Oh it almost gave me a heartache and I wanted to hurt both Maxon and America and that is exactly why it is on this list. It made me feel things and that is awesome for a book to be able to do. 🙂

  9. Maggie

    Great list! I think if I had another spot or two Pivot Point would have made my list. It really impressed me. And I’ve seen Parallel on a bunch of lists today, I need to make a point to pick it up.

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  10. Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my list — I love meeting new blogger friends 🙂

    I am so excited to see On the Jellicoe Road on your list — such an amazing amazing amazing book! Great list!

    • I love meeting new blogger friends too since I’m only 6 months into this blogging venture…well on my own anyway. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • What?!?! NO! You have to read more. The Program and Anna and Parallel and the book crack of The Selection Series and Jellicoe, oh Jellicoe. Jonah Griggs is the man! Trust me Melissa, read them all. 🙂

      Thanks for being number 300!

  11. Where the Stars Still Shine’s cover is so pretty! I can’t wait until it’s out! Also I still haven’t read anything by Jessi Kirby, but I’ve heard such good things about all her books so I really really need to! And 5 times for Anna?? That’s pretty impressive! It was a fab book!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

  12. This is a great list, I’m so pleased to see Parallel and Shatter Me on your list. I can’t wait to read in Honor and Where the Stars Still Shine, they both look like beautiful reads!

  13. I’ve got to read Pivot Point, I think it has literally been on every TTT list I’ve looked at this week! The Program also looks right up my alley, so I ‘ve got some TBR growing to do
