  1. The only book I’ve read from your list is Panic and I didn’t like it too much 😦 I LOVE Lauren Oliver so maybe I had just set my expectations too high? I’ll definitely be adding more of the books on your list to my TBR though 🙂 Fab, fab list.

    My TTT


  2. I’ve read none of these, which means I have some homework to do! I really only tried contemporary YA this year, so some will have to be added to the TBR.


  3. I haven’t read any of these books but many of them are on my to-be-read list! I definitely need to read something by Jenny Han in the new year since all of her books are on my tbr!


    1. Yes to Jenny Han! Especially her To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Although I would recommend reading it close to the release date of the sequel because when I finished it I screamed “WHAT! It can’t end like this!”


  4. I’m incredibly intrigued by Schizo. I hadn’t seen it around before, but I agree with you it’s important and incredible that books are being written about mental illness for young adults! It looks like you’ve had a great reading year! 🙂


  5. I just bought Shizo for my library so I am glad to see it on a list. I haven’t read any of the books you’ve listed but many are very popular in the library.
