  9. I have Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, I'm probably going to wait until next year to read it because if I love it as much as everyone says I will then I don't want to wait too long for the next book.

    1. It's super amazing! But you could wait and then binge-read, since the sequel will be out in August.

  19. LOVED Altered! Ooh, I still need to read My Life Next Door, too. :) And I'm so jealous you got to read The Winner's Curse! I've heard nothing but amazing things about it, and it just makes me want to read it right now. Too bad the publication date isn't until March. :(

    1. YAY! Altered was released literally at the beginning of the year, but it's one of my favorites. I got to borrow TWC from a friend. It is so amazing and perfect (as close as you can get, anyway). Don't fret, Holly, it's not too far away!

  20. I'm a shameful person who has only read TWO books on your list!! But I'm absolutely dying to read The Burning Sky, The Winner's Curse, and Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea! And I mean seriously dying, like on my death bed. (I'm not at all dramatic.)

    Yay! Great list! :)
