  2. I really hope Altered is as epic as everyone says it is. It seems kinda weird (there are guys living in her basement), but apparently that works for everyone! :D Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting!

  3. The Rules from Disappearing made my list too! Fingers crossed it lives up to expectations! ;)

    1. I know! I'm SO stinkin' excited for these books...and that scares me a bit :) *fingers crossed* Thanks for commenting! Happy Reading!

  4. The Rules of Disappearing made my list too! Can't wait to see how it all plays out! Happy Reading!

    Alice @ Alice in Readerland

  7. I don't read a lot of contemporary/realistic YA fiction (I look more at urban fantasy) but I'm trying to change that. "The Summer I Became A Nerd" is one that I might have to check out. I'm a nerd through and through and I think that this concept seems pretty interesting. Hope you enjoy all the books!

    Caroline @ Prose Before Woes

    1. From one nerd to another...happy reading, Caroline! Thanks for stopping by!
