1- Favorite Genre of the Moment

1.  Still looking for one and branching out of JUST YA Contemporary... Suggestions??

So do you agree with any of my choices??  Which books did I leave off that you think should be on here?


  1. Oooh yes YA contemporary is my one true love as well! I'd like to branch out a bit more more often but I just love it so much that I keep on going back to it. I don't think I could read another genre as exclusively as I do contemporary! But I do also really enjoy historical fiction. It's probably second after contemporary on my list!

    And aww sorry you didn't like Jellicoe Road. It definitely wasn't a favourite and I didn't like it as much as I expected. I had the same thought about it as you though, it was so confusing for so long! Like I feel like if things were cleared up a bit quicker then it might have been better for me instead of having to worry about figuring it out the entire time.

    And I agree with your answers 2-5 for Books You Recommend the Most (and that's only because I haven't read Fangirl. I'm sure if I did, I would agree with you as well ;). They're some of my favourite books and I love to push them on everybody!

    And OH MY GOD, waiting for Isla, Ashes to Ashes and Dangerous Boys is going to be the DEATH OF ME. I'm just so excited for all three and I just absolutely CANNOT WAIT. I feel like I might explode with scream on the day they're finally out and then run to the bookstore haha.

    Great list and really fun survey! :)

    1. I have an absolute problem with YA Contemporary... I just can't stop wanting to read ALL the books that come out. I've been trying to branch out, but I'll never have another favorite I don't think! It seems like we have a lot in common reading wise... I'm going to go check out your blog now :)

  2. Wow, I absolutely LOVE the Fairest cover! I'm so excited about Dangerous Boys too, DG blew me away and I can't wait to see what kind of twist will come with DB! I haven't read the Burn for Burn books yet but they are on my to-buy list and I may just wait until Ashes for Ashes comes out so I can binge read them :)

    Thanks for participating in the survey!

    1. When Ashes for Ashes comes out you totally should binge read them! I wish I was able to read all 3 without waiting.... those cliffhangers are rough! Thanks for putting this cool survey together!

  3. Really love your fave cover choices! Esp. "Everything Leads to You."

    1. I'm reading Everything Leads to You now and the inside is as good as the outside!

  4. Great lists! There's a lot of stuff on here that I haven't read yet, but really want to. If only there were more time!

  5. Oh boy I LOVED the entire Jessica Darling series but I do see the frustrations many people have. I didn't love book 5 as much as 1, 2, 3 and 4 but I did enjoy it. Megan actually only wrote it with a plan of 1 and 2 selling but then it did so well they added more. I'd actually love to see a Marcus/Jessica-have kids plot line book. That might be interesting :)

    YA contemporary is my favorite too. Thanks for this survey - I might participate in it soon :)

    1. I would read a book about Marcus and Jessica having kids... as long as it's not in third person again... and there's no Haiku's!!
