  1. Oooh great list! I agree with both of you on mostly everything, though more with Pixie!

    And you've convinced me to move up The Mostrumologist & Jessicas Guide to Dating on the Dark Side up on my list! 🙂

  2. Whoaa, such a great idea, guys! 🙂 Hehe, I've yet to read TDD and The Mortal Instruments and The Hunger Games and….a lot more. Oh dear. But you guys made me want to read them ten times more 🙂

    And lol, I had to shield my eyes from the spoiler. PHEW! Thanks for the warning!

  3. What an awesome idea! I have to say I LOVE it and love who you guys picked!! I think this is one of my favorite posts you guys have done. Very creative!!

  4. I agree with everything mentioned about Hush Hush, Shiver, Fallen, HON series, BEautiful creatures…. the others are still on my TBR list!!

    On thing I have noticed is that YA covers ROCK esp withing the paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy genres!!!
