    YES I WILL BUY ALL THESE BOOKS. YES. AND in general I am MORE EXCITED TO READ THESE AS WELL. I don’t even know where to start, I just want to flail flail and flail about all of these even though I haven’t read them YET

    I have read a few of these- but want to read ALL of them! The Hate U Give was incredible, and Wintersong was really good, too! I NEED to read so many of these- I think all of them are on my TBR but some of them are extra-high priority. I have a lot of reading to do! 😀 Great list, love!
