  1. Ooh nice list! I can't wait for The Geography of You and Me, Raging Star and The Fearless :D

  2. Morgan Matson has a new book out this year?! I did not know this. I'm gonna go and find out everything that I can about it. And yes so much to Trouble, Cress and Banished. Great list! 2014 is going to be a good year for books.

  3. Wow April is going to awesome. So much goodness! Most looking forward to new Morgan Matson and Jen E Smith. Dont know much about Lobsters but sounds adorable! I need to get round to reading Trouble...

  4. So Many pretties! I will be breaking my Book Buying Ban a lot in the next few months, me senses...

    Out of your list, I am SUPER excited about Cress, Banished, Kiss In the Dark, Dreams of Gods and Monsters and Two Boys Kissing (very excited to read that). I know nothing about Trouble, but I keep hearing wonderful things about this book and To All The Boys I Loved Before sounds cute [I need more cute in my life]. I read somewhere that the fourth book in the Night School series, Resistance, is out in June so... am going to be poor for the next few months!


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
