* signifies favorites.


  1. You have definitely inspired me to read 50 books (or at least as close to that as possible) in the new year! I was skimming this list and I think we’re the same person — Looking for Alaska is one of my all-time favorites, and I absolutely loved Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac. Have you read Gabrielle Zevin’s book Elsewhere? It was the first book I read by her and it made me cry, but it was beautifully done. John Green also wrote Paper Towns, which I based my old blog on. Anyway, I am so excited to try and read 50 books this year! Best of luck to you and happy new year 🙂

  2. No, I haven’t read Elsewhere yet, but I definitely plan on reading it soon. Paper Towns too! I’m glad you plan to ready a lot too; I’ll be looking out for your book recommendations =D Happy New Year!
