    171 books!! I wish I could read that fast!!! I’m very envious, that’s awesome!! It seems like Heather Demetrios is on a lot of people’s favorite lists from 2014. I haven’t read anything by her yet, but Something Real looks really good. As does the one that’s coming out in 2015. I also can’t wait for Winter. The Lunar Chronicles series is killing me with this wait!! Everything Leads to You also made my list for the most beautifully written book of 2014. I LOVE Nina LaCour more and more with every book she writes 🙂
