    1. Thanks! This list was hard to put together. I read so many great authors this year. I hope you enjoy Exit, Pursued by a Bear. I didn’t enjoy it quite as much the second time, but the first time I couldn’t put it down. I read it all in one day.

  1. I have read and loved Simon Vs. and Swear On This Life. Oh, and if you like Taylor Jenkins Reid, I have an auction for an annotated copy here:

    All money goes to The Trevor Project! No bids as I write this. 🙂
