    Well, you already know how I feel about your taste in books – since I buy at LEAST 60% of the books you review positively. (Murakami is on my list because of you, tbh.)

    Your list contained more than one I forgot…. Love Is the Drug! Station Eleven! But then, with only ten spots, you can't remember them all. Yup, it's shaping up to be a good reading winter!

    Me too. If ever there's a national vote to enact hibernation from about mid-September until March where the entire country (except pizza delivery) stays home and does nothing but read, I'd be the first to vote YES. And this list is where I'd start.

    I've only read Reality Boy, but I was impressed with how realistic her characters were, and how much I could relate to them. She didn't sugar coat being a teenager either, which really impressed me. This'll be my second of her books and I'm looking forward to seeing how it stacks up!

    Me too! I was surprised to find out there as a sequel – The Rosie Project really had a stand-alone feel. So I'm curious to see where this book takes the story! How are you, btw? I feel like I haven't talked to you in AGES!

    Yes! I mean, did I think it was perfect? No. Were there things I'd criticize? Yes. But overall I thought it struck a good balance between the thriller aspect and character development, didn't get too out there with the “special powers,” and definitely left me itching to read the sequel. It *is* YA, but as long as you go into it with YA-level expectations, I'd say it's worth a read. It reminded me of a cross between Criminal Minds and The Mentalist (but obvs a bit less intense).

    I've actually only read ONE A.S. King – Reality Boy – but I was impressed with the writing and how realistic it felt. I'm looking forward to reading the new one!

    I assume you liked The Naturals??? I'm always a bit hesitant when it comes to YA thriller/crime novels. They rarely work for me but this series sounds good!?

    Glory O'Brien's History of the Future has been on my wishlist for a while now. I feel so bad for not having read any A.S. King book yet D:
