Good reads Challenge

Anyone notice that Morgan Matson has claimed the 1st and 3rd spot? I discovered her books this year and love them. She’s now in the category ‘read anything written by this author‘!

I am currently reading Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List… What should I read next?

  1. You have some great YA picks on here! I love everything by Morgan Matson 🙂

  2. I have never read Morgan Matson. This is a nice diverse list with a bunch of books I’ve never read 🙂 which is good, as now I can look them all up on Goodreads (Goodreads is basically my book brain, I don’t know what I’d do without it to tell me what I read).
    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my TTT post! I will have to check out Morgan Matson’s books–they sound great!

  4. Perhaps I´ll give Neil Gaiman another chance!

  5. Interesting list! Morgan Matson and Laurie Halse Anderson is now on my TBR – list!
    I´m reading Neil Gaiman´s The ocean at the end of the Lane and I´m not overwhelmed so far…

  6. Hi Sue! Wow, the only book on your list that I’ve read is How to Save a Life. This is actually great because now my TBR list is just growing and growing. I read the first in the Smoke and Bones trilogy but haven’t gotten the last two yet. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my TTT 🙂

  7. I loved Dreams of Gods and Monsters & Isla and the Happily Ever After. And I love Neil Gaiman’s works but I haven’t read Fortunately the Milk yet. Great list this week!

    Thanks for for stopping by my TTT earlier 🙂

  8. Great picks! I love Since You’ve Been Gone and Don’t Look Back! Cracked Up to Be sounds great — going to look into that one!!

    My TTT

  9. 93 Books so far, well done 🙂 and a Great Top Ten 🙂
    I’ve got Laini Taylor on my TBR, I’ve really got to get stuck into that series.

  10. Great list!! I love Sara Zarr and Courtney Summers!! I’m so glad to see Cracked Up to Be on your list 🙂 I also really liked Isla, and really really need to read The Impossible Knife of Memory. I can’t believe there’s an LHA book out for so long and I haven’t read it!

    Thanks for stopping by My TTT

  11. Aye, I need to read something by Morgan Matson. But I see Neil Gaiman! I read a bit of Fortunately the Milk while I was volunteering at the library but didn’t manage to finish it. Laurie Halse Anderson is one of my “read everything by this author” people, but I haven’t read The Impossible Knife of Memory – how was it?

  12. You have so many books I love on your list! Since You’ve Been Gone and Isla were two of my favorites last year.

  13. Great list. Isla is the only book on your list I’ve read, but I see a few others I’ll check out.

  14. Such a great list! And a nice diverse grouping of books. We don’t have a lot of overlap, but my Top Ten Tuesday list includes a lot of older titles. You have read quite a few books that are on my TBR list though. Lucky you! And you are crushing your Goodreads yearly goal. Dang. Go you!

  15. Isla and the Happily Ever After is on everyone’s list this week. I haven’t read any of those books. Looks like my TBR is about to grow, again.

  16. If you like Morgan Matson, you should try to read her book Second Chance Summer! It’s a great book about family and pretty heartbreaking. I haven’t read Since You’ve Been Gone and Amy and Roger’s Epic Detour yet, but both are on my tbr 🙂
