from the beginning:


  1. Well...I guess you already know I'm a follower/stalker. ;)
    And my recommendation is the series I mentioned the other day by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I read all four of them, but I'm not sure what I thought about the last two. I liked the first two.
    Also the Chemical Garden books.

    1. Thanks for the stalking and the recommendations!!!
      I have the first Chemical Garden on my hold list since you mentioned it. I still need to add the Pfeffer one. First I have to figure out the order!

  2. Here's the order they were written: Life As We Knew It, The Dead And The Gone, This World We Live In, Shade of the Moon. You could read either Life As We Knew it or The Dead and the Gone first since they record the same events from different characters perspective.

    1. Thank you sooo much! That will save me some digging time. Same story from two perspectives sounds really intriguing - looking forward to it.

  3. I've been a follower since your 31 days of childrens book crushes. Always exciting to find a new update in my inbox!

    I THINK I'm most interested in reading Anna and the French Kiss but they all sound so good its hard to choose.

    1. Hi Ashley! Thank for hanging around; hopefully this year I'll do more consistent post updating. =)

      Good choice on Anna and the French Kiss. There are companion books to that one too, which is always fun.

  4. Hello,
    I found your blog through the 31 days series. I immediately started following you on Facebook. I love YA, and I always felt like a weirdo because I felt like I was reading "down" so to speak. Great blog. I now have a whole new set of books I can't wait to read thanks to you. I am currently reading This is what happy looks like by Jennifer E Smith. I really like her work. This is her second book I have read!

    1. Hi April! So glad that you found me. I love finding fellow booklovers - especially ones who gravitate to the same genres I do. I really liked The Statistical Possibility of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith. In fact, it would have been yesterdays's True Love Tuesday post, but got bumped by Where She Went. =)

  5. Transferring from Facebook:

    Shelley, every time I try to comment on your blog it never shows up!!! Ugh. I wanted to enter your contest! I would totally want you to surprise me if I won! I wanted to recommend Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson! Historical fiction. Amazing. Her new one sounds pretty intriguing too...the impossible Knife of Memory. Also, I follow you on my blog (which I haven't been on in forever) and of course FB. I will share your contest on FB today:). And btw, this book sounds amazing! I'm sure I could use it for my mouth!!!
