  2. I am so with you about the Jessica Darling series. I just picked it up this year and can't believe I'd missed it for all these years. I liked books 1, 2 and 5 the best. :-) Great list!

    1. I need to finish the series. I'm dying! Thanks!

  3. SO much goodness in one blog post!! *LOL*

    I really need to read "Every Day" because I've seen it on several 2012 wrap-up lists so far! (I guess that's a clue that I should hurry up and read it before 2012 is over!)

    I read the last 3 books of Jessica Darling this year and I am so glad I read it! Such a fantastic series, I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read it!! (Ok, I can - since I have awhile! But it's definitely one I want to share with her!)

    Stop by and see my 2012 Wrap Up!
