  1. Wow I really must read Blood Red Road!

    I look forward to seeing your picks in the next category.

    Check out mine here:

  2. oh my gosh ~ i really liked blood red road as well. it has a lot of awesome stuff going for it (the prose, the setting, the epic scale ...)

    and i LOVE eileen cook but haven't read that one yet (i'm hanging out for the paperback)

    i didn;t think i would love shades of grey so much as well <3

    and i agree living dead girl was haunting and intense O.o

  3. I read FORBIDDEN last year, and it was just GUH. i loved, loved, loved, LOVED it.

    also: BETWEEN SHADES OF GRAY!!!!! one of the best books, if I do say so myself ;)

  4. Ten Things We Did and Forbidden made my list as well! :)

    Stay almost made my list!

    For premise, Wither won for me as well! Everyone seems to be chosing that one! :)

  5. I've seen those Iron Druid Chronicles books everywhere. I really need to get my hands on them. I love the covers. I've also got to get Blood Red Road.

    And Forbidden just ripped my heart out. Love it! Glad to see we have the same choice for awesome premise.

    Thanks for sharing your fave books!

  6. The only book I've read on your list is Wither and I totally agree with you on that one ;)

  7. I've read almost none of these! Must read Blood Red Road and Forbidden. Also I've heard almost nothing about Orchards so glad to hear it's an overlooked gem!

  8. There's a lot here that I haven't read. Will have to check them out! I loved Living Dead Girl, but have no desire to re-read it. Haha...

  9. You are NOT helping my TBR! I feel like I MUST read Blood Red Road now! I also added Forbidden to my WL cause I've been hearing so many amazing things about it.
    I also love The Iron Druid Chronicles, amazing!
    I loved Moonglass and The Emerald Atlas as well! What a great list!

  10. I really need to read those Iron Druid books. So glad to see you put The Emerald Atlas for most imaginative. It's on my TBR.
