  1. I haven't read anything on your list. I'm so out of touch with YA books.

  2. The only book I haven't read yet is Pushing the Limits...I have it and I need to. Especially since I agree with your 5 star ratings of each of these! Maybe if I can make it through this week I can get to it.

  3. I read the Immortal Rules and loved it too!

    The cover of Pure is just gorgeous.

  4. I really want to read The Immortal Rules after reading most of the Iron Fey series. I love her writing!
    Hope you will stop by my giveaway.

  5. Really enjoyed Immortal Rules!
    Have fun with aBEA!

  6. Hello fellow YA book junkie, haha.

    I loved Graffiti Moon and jumped around like crazy and flailed all over my SIL when I realized I got approved for Pushing the Limits from NetGalley. My fellow Litbrarians also read and loved The Immortal Rules.

    I hope you have a great BEA-filled week!

    The Book Hookup's Best of 2012

  7. I read a different PURE which is one of my favorites this year too! :-)

  8. So many people are talking about Storm and Armentrout's Half-Blood novels! I'm going to have to pick those up soon, or I'll be left in the dust lol. I agree with you on Immortal Rules though - fabulous book!

    Here's my list!

  9. I thought Grafitti Moon was really cute! And I am so jealous you have read Pushing the Limits! I can't wait for that one so it is exciting to see it on your favorites list! :)
    My Best of 2012

  10. Another Jennifer Armentrout fan! I've got to look up that chick, post haste. Nice list!

  11. I have Storm, just haven't read it yet! MUST GET TO IT SOON! :D everybody has it on their list! which means it's very awesome and I can't wait for it. :)

  12. Nice choices there. I LOVED Pure but read it last year. Oh course ANYTHING by JLA rocks my world.

    So want to read Pushing the Limits. Stoked that you liked it!!!

    Thanks for participating!

    Here's my crem della crem list


  13. The Immortal is a popular pick for today's post. I finally got the message, adding it to my shopping cart... now!

  14. I am seeing a few of the same books pop up on favorite lists. I will be checking them out.

  15. Lots of Immortal Rules and any Jennifer L. Armentrout books.

  16. I absolutely loved Storm and can't wait for the second. Immortal Rules was a good one too. I've heard a lot of things about Pushing The Limits, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Interesting pile! :)

  17. I definitely need to read Pushing The Limits--it's taunting me from my TBR pile. And I've been hearing a ton of positive things about Storm. I'll have to look into getting a copy coming up.

  18. PURE! EEEP. I really really really cannot wait for DEITY.

    Here's my Best Of post!

  19. From your list, I've only read The Immortal Rules. I've heard great things about all the rest, though! Thanks for stopping by my post. :-)
