  1. Hunger Games is fantastic and a quick read. On Sunday there will be a discussion of Games on my blog. Please check it out!

  2. Jess - That sounds great. A recommendation and motivation to read it. =) Looking forward to checking out (and joining?) the discussion.

  3. Loved the Denise Dietz series and looking at your list will be causing by books I want list to grow and grow.


  4. Graceling Graceling Graceling! It's quite possibly one of the best books I've read in a long time. From a library-only reader, I'm even considering buying it for my small, personal collection. :)

  5. I'm with Natalie. GRACELING!! Though Hunger Games and Demon's Lexicon are good reads too. =D

  6. Holy Books have all of those checked out from the library???

    The Hunger Games for sure, Graceling, 13 Reasons Why.

    Whatever you decide have a great week of reading!

  7. dollycas - I can't say I loved the Dietz book, but it was decent. And have a great week reading yourself. =)

    NatalieSap and Ah Yuan // wingstodust - lol. Okay, Graceling comes after Hunger Games.

    Staci - Yes. I'm sure you can see my problem. And of course, while I have these books, someone else does not (as evidenced by the contimual "Book has been requested and cannot be renewed" messages I get).

  8. I really like Julie Kenner so I would probably go for the book she had part in. You have some great books there, I seey why you are having frouble choosing the next book! Happy reading!

  9. Hunger Games is a wonderful story, but be prepared to run out and get Catching Fire as it is hard not to keep reading this series, I am anxiously awaiting Mockingbird. Have a great read.

  10. Oh wow! You have a real enviable list of reading out there! So many good books. Happy reading

  11. I really enjoyed Balled, I definitely recommend.
    I thought about trying one of the Krista Davis books. Are they good?

  12. Havent heard of any of the books on your reading list but you've got an awesome line-up in your YA possibilities. Graceling and The Hunger Games made my favourite read of 2009 list. Have a great week!

  13. What a great list of books! The choices are just so good I have no idea how you will pick! Have fun! :)
