The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

The one that I am still thinking about

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The one my friend(s) wrote

The Right and the Real by Joelle Anthony and The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook – gosh my friends write terrific books!

The one that made me rush out and buy all the authors other books

The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen

The one that was a big surprise

I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella – I really didn’t like the shopaholic series, but this was brilliant and incredibly funny.

The one I can’t wait for everyone to read 

Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell


  1. Yaaaaay Rainbow R has a new one, loved Attachments, so cute. I am intrigued by Code Name Verity, it is on many lists.



    1. Eleanor and Park is amazing – enjoy! Code name Verity is a must read, it's amazing.


  2. Such a lovely list, Alexa! I love seeing THE PEACH KEEPER and THE RAVEN BOYS on here. And wasn't I'VE GOT YOUR NUMBER such a delightful surprise?



    1. Thanks Angie and thanks for recommending THE PEACH KEEPER, I loved it. And, yes, IVE GOT YOUR NUMBER was delightful.


    2. Sophie Kinsella's best one in my opinion, loved that book way more than expected!


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour 😀
