  1. You've got some brilliant books in that list. Perfect Chemistry, Hush, Hush, Cracked up to Be, Twenty Boy Summer and If I Stay are among my favourites too.

  2. Ooh, there's a lot!
    And yay, you loved Almost Perfect! *throws confetti* I loved it too and I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it :) I've still gotta read some of these. Thanks for the list! :)

  3. Awesome list! I loved Cracked Up to Be and Wintergirls. And I just bought Willow and If I Stay and can't wait to read them :)

  4. You have a great list!
    I have 6 of the books above, but I haven't had the chance to read most of them.
    Will be looking at the others you mentioned!

  5. Great list, I will also be adding mine later this week and it includes a few of these :)

  6. I'm amazed at how many I've read from your list!!

  7. I got a bunch of those for Christmas, The Hate List, Cracked Up to Be, Perfect Chemistry. I need Liar tho!!! Great list. Thanks for sharing it.

  8. I haven't read any of the books on your list.

  9. Great list!! The only one I've read is The Hate List.

  10. Really interesting list - I've barely read any of these but there's a lot that interest me. I especially want to read If I Stay and The Hate List, both sound like really powerful reads.

  11. Wow, that's a great list of books! I love almost all of them, but my favorites are The Summer I Turned Pretty (I can't wait for the sequel), Wintergirls, and Along For the Ride. I loved Along For the Ride, in fact it was the inspiration for the name of my new book review blog :) I'm waiting in line at the library to read Liar, I can't wait! I love your blog, great job!
