The Princess Diaries is in my 2016 TBR. I never read this author, so I hope I'll enjoy it.
The Wolves of Mercy Falls have pretty covers, for the moment they have an average rating among my GR friends so it will be interesting to see how you like Shiver.

I have looked at Shiver a while back but did not get to read it that is one reason I have picked it to read for this challenge.

Now it finish picking books for this challenge. I need to finish looking through the suggestions for the missing ones still jot them down then add them.

Stephanie (teff1979) Wow I am so far behind I need to catch up, at this rate I do not think I will finish this challenge or any of them, I have been sick on and off and not up to reading. I am on the mend now so lets see how it goes!
