  4. Oh my! Dash and Lilly was on my list top reads from last year! One of the best books ever. Just thinking about it gets me all swoony. So so good!

    Great picks! If you have a minute stop by to see what I picked this week at There's A Book.

  5. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer has such an intriguing, almost hypnotic cover. I can definitely see why you chose it!

  6. I love, love, love all of those titles and Mara's cover still makes me drool. Great choices!

  7. The cover of I'll be There does look enticing. It makes me want to turn it over to read what's on the back.

  8. Shiver is beautiful on the cover and on the inside, and while I loved the book, I think I loved it more because so much attention was paid to make it beautiful. The same for Linger and Forever. Excellent "total package" book, if you ask me. :)

  12. I love how you broke down your list! I completely agree with your list of titles, they are all so amazing. Shiver and Sweethearts are great covers, I haven't read the other three though!

  13. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is number 1 on my list. I just love the title. An Abundance of Katherines is a great title as well, although I have yet to read it. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer has a lovely cover. Can't wait to read that one. This was a great list!

  14. I have a love-hate relationship with 10 Things. You can guess which part I love and which part I hate. ;)

    And ahhhh, you included Sandell's book! My love for A Map of the Known World's cover increased tenfold after reading it and seeing and understanding the metalwork art all over the cover. Gorgeous.

  15. Agreed x's 1,000 on all of these.
    And now I want to know what part Capillya hated in 10 Things... must ask on twitter.

  16. I love both lists! I agree with Mara Dyer and I'll Be There....two very eye-catching covers. Dash and Lily is high up on my TBR list- you are right....the title is brilliant. I can hopefully read it this holiday season.

  20. Yay! Love for Perks of Being a Wallflower! I read this about 8 years ago and am so excited it's making a "comeback" because of the upcoming movie :)

  21. A Map of the Known World...Capillya recommended it to me after I mentioned liking to read books that have art. You loved it? I need to buy it or something one of these days since my library doesn't have it.

    Sweethearts just makes me want to eat a cookie, lol.

  22. I agree with you on basically all these books! Especially the titles book list. And yes, I totally read Sweethearts just for the tasty cover. Fortunately I also ended up LOVING that book. :)

  23. I love Dash and Lily's. The title totally drew me in, but the authors didn't hurt either :]
