Daughter of Smoke & Bone (Daughter of Smoke & Bone, #1)

Linger (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, #2)
I liked Shiver just fine, but it didn't FORCE me to read Linger. But Linger has me DYING to read the next one.

It's maybe my least favorite of hers, but it's still tremendously tremendously good. That woman is magic.

Wolfsbane (Nightshade, #2)
It's not quite as good as the first one, but it's an excellent sequel and I can't WAIT for the final book.

Hourglass (Hourglass, #1)
This one was slow for me in the beginning - it took a good two hundred or more pages for it to really start moving on the time-traveling issue.

I'm the queen of losing track of multiple voices, so it's amazing to me that I could keep track of EIGHT separate narratives. Very nicely done.

If I Stay (If I Stay, #1)
This book sort of blew me away - I expected it to be cliche and forgettable, but it ended up being very sweet and thoughtful.

Forever, Interrupted
Totally mixed feelings on this book because on the one hand, I read it in less than a day. On the other hand, I didn't think it was that amazing.
