  1. Ok. So, yeah. I think we can SAFELY say that dystopian is trending right now? lol!

    I'm still leary of reading The Fault in Our Stars. Lil too close to home I think. :) my other daughter thought it was very good though

    1. I hope that your daughter is doing good right now, and that you are holding up. Cancer is no fun.

    1. I'm thinking of doing the same thing with Insurgent when it arrives any day. I decided to go ahead and order a second copy for the library. Divergent has been so popular and I'm sure there will be a big rush to read the sequel.

  3. Your library is so gorgeous, Anne! What a beautiful space.

    Love this list - it includes many of my own favorites plus a few I hadn't heard of before - will have to check those out.
