Casual Vacancy is a good book even if it wasn't my sort of thing. I heard it was a mystery when I started it but it's definitely more a story of small town life. The last chapter made the entire book, in my opinion so stick with it even if you feel tempted to abandon it.
Great list. I haven't read any of these. I always get sucked in at book sales buying everything just because it's a good price but then the books never become a priority. Plus there are always new books coming out that tempt me to read them before I finish what I have.
Ok, this is a really good list!
Great list! I have Casual Vacancy on my shelf unread too! I need to get to it.
ooh, sounds interesting and good luck getting to your books, Thanks for stopping by. Love it, great choice in a teaser today. kelley—the road goes ever ever on
Great list! I am curious about that Meg Cabot book but haven't purchased it yetMy TTTEva @ All Books Considered
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who still has to read the Casual Vacancy! :) I read Jinx years ago and liked it, although I have the feeling that I wouldn't like it as much now, if you know what I mean. Great list!
I need to read 13 as well, but haven't had it in the TBR nearly as long as the ten I chose for my list. If I haven't gotten to it by this time next year it'll be an honorary add on :)
13 is amazing! I am a huge fan of the series and the finale is just perfect. The Casual Vacancy is also good. I'm a new follower :)My Top Ten!
The Casual Vacancy was one that I HAD TO HAVE and actually read right away! It was very different from what I normally read and was quite slow, but I still enjoyed it! Thanks for dropping by earlier- New Follower via GFC!
Oh, Twenty Boy Summer is such a sweet read! I loved it. I really need to get around to The Splendor Falls soon too, it sounds interesting. Nice list, and thank you for stopping by my TTT! :)
What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen is amazing (personally I think the majority of her works are), and I really enjoyed The Mockingbirds! Great list, and I hope you get a chance to enjoy them!
I have been dying to read all these things I've done, the plot seems so different and fresh but, for some reason I just haven't been able to get to reading it.Kristin @ Young Adult Book Haven
Oo, I haven't heard of most of these besides the Casual Vacancy :D I hope you get a chance to read them soon though!Anya @ On Starships and Dragonwings
I too have had Twenty Boy Summer and All These Things I've Done on my shelves forever. I hope you find time to read them soon!
I have gotten The Casual Vacancy TWICE from the library, and returned it both times without reading it. Oops.
I've seen The Casual Vacancy on quite a few lists! I had assumed EVERYBODY would read it straight away!
