  1. I actually read A Voice in the Wind a few years back and enjoyed it, although I never got around to the rest of the series. And OMG the cover for Shatter Me is absolutely gorgeous!

    • I had to read the second book in the series because A Voice in the Wind made me so mad at the end. The third book in the series was not great. But it was almost like a standalone book because it only focused on one of the secondary characters. There was no Marcus or Hadassah.

      And I love the Shatter Me covers!

  2. Divergent and The Hunger Games for sure. I’ve read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, but the Mark of the Lion series is on my TBR list. Also, only read Eleanor & Park but loved it. I’d probably read anything by Rainbow Rowell. Also really enjoyed Shadow & Bone and the Shatter Me series I’ve heard nothing but good things about. Great list!
