  1. I think you know I agree with everything on this list :-)

  2. Oh girl I absolutely love this list and I don't even know where to start! I keep forgetting you love Angelfire too! That series deserves more recognition! And OMG the masquerade scene! I'll stop there but just know I flailed over this whole post!

    1. Yes! I agree- more people need to read Angelfire! I'm sure I can convince Chelsea to read it! ;) And the masquerade scene? Yeah, totally have it typed up on Word on my computer. I love rereading that.

  3. Fun post! I love the Pushing the Limits series and the Shade series so much, too.

    Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks Andrea! Happy New Year to you too! The Shade series will forever hold a very dear place in my heart. I fell so in love with it!

  4. Dude, I totally agree with SO MANY of these! So excited for Collide even though it's so far away D:
    I really need to read the Throne of Glass and Angelfire series, I've heard countless amazing things about them.
    Love your list, Jess <3

    1. YAY! I know! I hate how far away Collide is! I want it SO bad! I loved Angelfire series Richa! Read it! More people need to check it out! :) I also really enjoyed TOG.

  5. I was not a fan of the end of With All My Soul. I don't know why but.. AND I forgot to add a "paranormal" to mine, oops. But yes, I love the lux series!

    INCARNATE! Woot! *fist bump*

    1. Aww. I liked it. But I felt the ending was really bittersweet and I was torn. YAY! I'm so glad you love Incarnate too! More people need to know about that book!
