I picked one with too many vowels, you guys! I'm going to be scrambling to get E-A-E-R. I have an E and an A idea. I need to go through my Kindle and see what books I have sitting around!

Me too!! I'm down to two books, both starting with E.

For "A" how about the Rusk University Series they all start with "All". The first book is All Lined Up (Rusk University, #1) by Cora Carmack . The second book is my favorite, but I love the whole series. And for "E" you haven't read Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon . That one is on my favorites shelf.

Awesome job Barb!!!

Deanna, here are a few of my favorites that begin with E A and R. You probably have read some of these, but I only listed my 5 stars that were not further along in a series... so hope that helps.

Thanks for the ideas, ladies! I think I'm going with Addicted to You (Addicted, #1) by Krista Ritchie and Every Exquisite Thing by Matthew Quick since I already have them, but I am definitely going to check out the rest of them for my last E&R! :) I appreciate the lists!
