  1. I LOVE this list. I so agree with Rebel of the Sands, Caraval, and The Diabolic. Now I am very excited to read The Forgetting... it's high praise to hear that it won your #1 spot.

    I'll be on the lookout for your adult list :)

    1. I was actually a bit surprised by how much I adored The Forbidden Wish! It was my first attempt at Khoury's books. You MUST read The Forgetting! All of Cameron's books are amazing.

      Thank you, Cyn!

    1. Thank you! I love doing the boards - though it's a lot of work for the "201_ Reads" boards, to keep up as the year goes on. I like the visuals though. I hope you enjoy RoseBlood, Teresa!

  14. Omg I haven't read any of these yet, but like 99% of them I want to read so bad. I've had The Forbidden Wish and The Rose and the Dagger for what seems like ages and I still haven't gotten to them. I will early 2017 though! Great post and thanks for the chance on the giveaway.
