Personal Booklr:


katnis everdeen says:

you are so adorable 🙂

Sandra Nicander says:

I love Joe Hill. Heart Shaped Box is my personal favorite. Hope you enjoy.

Kathy Cox says:

i loved room but didn’t like heart shaped box

Danika Leigh Ellis says:

Oooh, so many exciting books!! I loved: Room, Her Body and Other Parties, and Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng. I’m curious about your thoughts on (You) Set Me On Fire. I have conflicting feelings about it. But it’s hard to beat those opening lines: “This is a story about college, about fire, and also about love. Before going to college at the age of seventeen, I’d been in love once (total catastrophe) and on fire twice (also pretty bad).”

Mazen Sanjari says:

12book’s is good number

Victoria H says:

I absolutely adored Heart Shaped Box! 😀 Let us know what you think when you start it?

Nadi Khan says:

Why is your Snape pop facing the books like his sad? 😛

Marjorie Quinn says:

Everything I Never Told You is well written but I was so annoyed with the family. The feels! So, yeah…good book. Can’t wait to read Celeste Ng’s Little Fires Everywhere. Also, She is amazing to follow on Twitter.

KappaBooks says:

On the Edge of Gone is such a good book!!

Jamie Sterner says:

Golden Boy destroyed my heart and honestly made me feel physically ill during the three full days it took to read it HOWEVER it is an absolutely beautiful book and I gave it 5/5 stars. Although, I would not recommend for the faint of heart as it deals with some heavy subject matter… so, prepare yourself for that. As for the representation, I would say it’s a story of one intersex person and his experience, so even though it’s not own-voices as far as I know, I didn’t see any issues in that regard.

George Miller says:

Make that 13 by adding in _The Stand_ by Stephen King and _2666_ by Roberto Bolaño.

edith says:

radio silence is amazingggggggg aaaaaa

Anna Babbling Book says:

YES Cece! You’ve picked some fantastic books (especially Radio Silence and Her Body and Other Parties). I am also planning on reading Celeste Ng in 2018.

MusicBooksTV says:

In Golden Boy, Max already knows he’s intersex, it’s not revealed to him at the beginning of the book. The story kind of takes off from something that happens to him at the beginning of the book, but I won’t say anything else!

lizbet69 says:

I loved ‘ room’

McKinlay's Bookshelf says:

Five Stages of Andrew Brawley was my first book from Shaun and i loved it so much!

Radio Silence is amazing.

Nicole McKeon says:

Oooh so excited to see someone else talking about (You) Set Me on Fire, I’ve been wanting to read that for ages!

Claire Sislo says:

Her Body and Other Parties is THA BEST

Eleanor May says:

Room is one of my all time favourite books. I can’t believe that you haven’t read it yet!!

Ashley Aliviado says:

Loved, LOVED Dress Codes for Small Towns.

Juliana Reads says:

Have you read Pages for You by Sylvia Brownrigg?? It’s also set in college (for at least half the novel) and features a lesbian relationship, and I loved it!

Super Space Chick says:

Heart Shaped Box was really interesting! There were some parts that were quite intense and overall it was really creepy!

Abi :) says:

Room is on my 2018 TBR too, I’m really hoping i like it bc I recently read The Lovely bones which is sort of hyped too but I honestly thought it was a chore to finish that novel.

Amelia M. Winter says:

Heart Shaped Box is great!!!!!!! I think you will LOVE it. I do. 😀

Kat Hilde says:

haha I really appreciate (and this coming from a German) you trying to pronounce Cornelia Funke’s last name as German as possible and you actually did it pretty well :D:D

LoveQuebec22 says:

Golden Boy is absolutely incredible, one of my favourite for sure! Can’t wait to hear what you think!

Read Create Repeat Homeschool says:

I finally read Room this year after what seems like a million years after everyone else read it. It was one of those that you have to wonder how it took so long.

Georgia Low says:

2018 does sound like a fake year. And it baffles my mind that we are about to roll into 2018 because I remember everyone panicking throughout 2012.

Carie Pena says:

I absolutely LOVED dress codes for small towns and radio silence!! They were super heart warming and precious 🙂

Charlotte Cloutier says:

The seven realms series is amazing but the first book is a bit slow

Books Beautify Life says:

I hope you love Celeste Ng! I read her books this year and i can not understand why i waited so long i loved both of them so much! I hope you do too! 
Gook luck reading those over the year 🙂
