  1. This is a neat idea! I think I'm going to have to do this, too. I haven't read a few of those on there (like Shiver, Fire, or Catching Fire - but I haven't read Hunger Games yet either...probably need to get on that). I'm with on Hate List, Ballads, and If I Stay - talk about bringing me to tears!

  2. Great list! I loved Forest of Hands and Teeth as well as The Awakening. I'm dying to read Maze Runner and Hate List. Actually, I want to read all of the books you've posted :-D

  3. ooh, I want to read Fire & the Maze Runner!!

  4. I really can't wait to read Carrie Ryan's book.

  5. Awesome list but I'm ashamed to say that the only one I've read is Shiver. The rest are on my list!

  6. I was thinking of doing this though I think I'll do it maybe the last day of the year, I don't know...

    Oh dear the only book I read on your list is If I Stay

  7. Great list, I can't wait to read the Hate List and Maze Runner.

  8. Catching Fire and If I Stay are on my list too :)

  9. There are several on this list that will likely make mine as well. Catching Fire, Hate List, Maze Runner, Shiver, Forest of Hands & Teeth....all really great books!

  10. Sorry to say, I have NOT read any of these titles yet! (GASP!) But...there are a few of these on my wish list so perhaps in the coming year... =0)

    Happy holidays!
