  1. Oh I really really want to read Wanderlove and I can't wait to start This Is Not a Test. Great choices! :)

  2. Awesome list! I loved UTNS, FDSTS, Shadow & Bone, Grave Mercy and Angelfall too! ^^

  3. This is not a test was a wonderful read. I really enjoyed it. Great list.

  4. Yaaay, two of these are on my list too (Grave MErcy and Seraphina) and I can't wait to share it with you guys next Saturday. I also liked Angelfall and Under the NEver Sky a lot, although Black Heart was a bit of a disappointment.
    Great choices! You reminded me that I need to read Shadow and Bone very soon.

  5. Another mention for Under the Never Sky? I officially must buy a copy!

    My Top 10 of 2012 is here if you'd like a look :)

  6. ANGELFALL Z!!!! That book surprised the heck out of me, I honestly wasn't expecting anything from it and it just blew me away. I adored it:) I couldn't have loved Shadow and Bone anymore if I'd tried either, I can't wait for Siege and Storm! Oh and For Darkness Shows the Stars and Under the Never Sky! So, basically, I love your whole list:)

  7. I think we might be twins because three of the books you featured I featured as well! But I won't tell you which ones ;P

    I've read Shadow and Bone and Under the Never Sky, and I've seen them on a lot of these lists, but I just didn't enjoy them very much. Well, I enjoyed Perry a lot, but I don't think that counts ;P
    Anyway, awesome list!!! :) New Follower too!

    My Top 10

  8. Loved This is Not a Test. Under the Never Sky surprised me, I didn't think I was going to love it like I did. Great choices!

    I adored Wanderlove, Shadow and Bone, and This Is Not a Test (as you most likely know) but I wasn't a huge fan of Grave Mercy and Seraphina, unfortunately. I'm reading Angelfall next week/year and can hardly wait to do so! :) Great list and happy holidays!

  10. I haven't read any of these! But I have been meaning to read Under The Never Sky, Shadow and Bone, Ths Is Not A Test, and Angelfall! I hear great things about them and them seem to be popular picks!
    My Top 10

  11. I loved Angelfall and Under the Never Sky. Great choices. I've been intrigued by Shadow and Bone and This is Not a Test.

  12. I'm actually surprised to see Angelfall on here. I guess I had it written off as yet another angel book but I'm clearly wrong. I'll have to pick that one up soon! I've been meaning to read "Shadow and Bone" too.

  13. Wanderlove, Black Heart, Under the Never Sky, This is Not a Test, Seraphina, Angelfall, and Shadow and Bone all would have made my list too. I just LOVED them and am thrilled you had them on here! Amazing list! :D
