    I never even thought to break up my list between NA and YA. I could have doubled the books and made fewer hard decisions, lol. Next year.


    1. I do love the Fate series so much! I also get really excited when I see her books being talked about, etc. Yeah, there was no way I could keep my YA and NA together. LOL.

  2. Oooh awesome list!! I loved Real, Hopeless (made my list too!), Wait For You, Foreplay and Unspoken! Definitely want to check out your favorite series toO!

    1. LOL. Ok, so I felt bad after doing it. I was like- was that mean that I included this? Or snarky? Because I totally didn't intend to! ROFL. Before I said screw it and just added all my faves at the end, I was trying to fit in all my favorite books into categories and I was like, Heeeey this could be one!
