  6. I am so glad to see 13 Reasons Why on so many lists because I really love that book. Besides having such a great message, it is so unique in set-up and impossible to put down.

  7. I just received Dare You To and totally didn't realize it was this kinda book- I was expecting a hot romance. Thanks for the warning! And Thirteen Reasons Why was incredible.

  8. I have read Pushing the Limits, Sea of Tranquility and Hopeless from that list. I enjoyed all of them and can't wait to read Dare You To. I rather avoid books about death and suicide, as I don't deal well with those subjects.

  15. Yes Speechless surprised me. I read it during a spell where it seemed like EVERY book touched on bullying. So I was kind of sick of the topic, but Speechless ended up being better than I expected. Thanks for stopping by!

  16. READ THEM! Colleen Hoover's stuff is GREAT! 2 of her 4 books I've given 5 Stars to. 1 was 4.9 Stars. And I think the other was like 4.5 Stars for me. They're just REALLY good! Thanks for stopping by!
