    1. Libba is fantastic! Her Gemma Doyle series is brilliant, and Beauty Queens was hysterical.

    1. David Levithan and Rachel Cohn are the entire reasons I read YA at all, I remembered picking up Nick & Norah and feeling like I'd found home. And yes, I hope you read Hannah Harrington's books soon! Tell me what you think of them once you do!

  6. I feel a really stern look from you in my direction, I still haven't read anything by John Green. I've had TFioS on my TBR pile for ages, together with a lot of other books! I hope to read it soon! *please don't hate me* :)

    1. A stern look indeed! I hope you get around to it soon, he's really worth all the hype around him. And let me know what you think when you do read him!

      (Which better be soon. The stern look is still here.)
