  1. Rereading Harry Potter is always great! I’ve been wanting to read An Ember in the Ashes. It sounds so good and I’ve been hearing great things. I actually didn’t like Uglies that much. It wasn’t a bad read, I just think that I had high expectations. Great list! Here’s my TTT if you’d like to stop by!

    Some new ones in here for me. Thanks for sharing this list.
    Top of my list right now would have to be Amy’s Gift from The Doomsday Kids series by Karyn Folan (
    Apocalyptic adventure tales that feature the story of a different character in each book. Highly addictive reading that You just can’t put down and one of those that feels perfectly suited to be made into a TV series or movie. They have far more depth and emotion than some similar themed books like The Hunger Games.

  3. Your books sound great! I especially enjoyed Uglies, but I need to finish the series; I’ve only read the first two. How about you?
