  1. How many have you read?

    I love to see books I have read on lists of favorites. How about you? :)

  2. I appear to have my reading cut out for me. Thanks for the list - I'm definitely going to dive in to a few.

  3. I've only read one, but I have two of the others on my shelf waiting to read. Thanks for the list. It seems to be a great one!

  4. Oh! Actually I've read 2 and have 4 others on my shelf! Yeah me. I have some great things to look forward to.

  5. My book club read "The Fault in Our Stars" last year and it led to a very good discussion!

    I loved Orphan Train...maybe I'll suggest it next year for my club!

  6. Ryshia....they all look so good don't they.

    Be sure to let me know which ones you read.

    THANKS for stopping.

  7. Yippee, Heidi.

    I love when I see lists that have favorite picks on them and books that I have read are on them. :)

    THANKS for stopping.

  8. Melinda....I "think" my book club won ONE copy to share of FAULT IN THE STARS.

    I may suggest that, but see below about how we choose books. I hope your club likes THE ORPHAN TRAIN.

    We have a special way of choosing books so no one's feelings get hurt. Some members were upset because other members always complained about their book choices so we made up a fail-proof system. You may have seen my post at one time on our procedure, but what we did was to make a list of books in an Excel Spreadsheet that we all liked and assigned each book a number.

    Then we made numbers and put them in a hat. Whatever number comes out of the hat is the book for the month. :)

    THANKS for stopping.

  9. The only one I've read is Orphan Train. But two others are on my wish list - The Light Between Oceans
    and - The Fault in Our Stars

  10. I hope you loved The Orphan Train as much as I did.

    I haven't read The Light Between Oceans or The Fault in The Stars.

    Thanks for stopping, Wall-to-wall Books.

  11. I've only read one of the books on the list. But, I have a couple of on my shelf.

  12. Which one did you read, Irene?

    Which ones on your shelf?

    THANKS for stopping by.

  13. Oooh, thanks for a good list for me to check off all I want. I have many of these on my wishlist, and own a couple but haven't read any except Divergent when it first came out and I did a buddy-read with my grown daughter. I don't read much YA, but it was an exciting book. Now I am off to look for more :)

  14. Also want to mention that I have never been in a face-to-face book club, but it is on my bucket list :) and hope when I move that I can join one somewhere there. Specifically, I have Orphan Train and The Light Between Oceans and read Divergent. But most of the others are ones I would like to pick up sometime.

  15. Too bad you don't live near me, Rita, you could join our book club. :)

    I hope you get to join one when you move. They are fun.

    I LOVED The Orphan Train.

    THANKS so much for stopping by.

  16. I hope you find more to add to your reading list.

    I do like this list a lot.

    THANKS for stopping, Rita. I didn't see your two comments until after I answered the other one. :)

  17. Nice list, I do want to read The Fault in Our Stars.

  18. I've read three of the top picks...and both of the Rising Stars. Great books!


  19. THANKS for stopping, Naida.

    I hope you get to read The Fault in Our Stars.

  20. Thanks for stopping, Laurel.

    Great that you read three of the top picks.

  21. Great list! I've read two: Me Before You and The Fault in Our Stars. I'm hoping to read more.
