I will be updating this page as I find more books in the nooks and crannies of my room or on the ever amazing Goodreads :) Challenges do make you organized!



  1. Good luck to you! Some of your books on the TBR list I have read and loved so I am really hoping you do too! Like Under the Never Sky, Insurgent, Mara Dyer, The Fault in Our Stars, etc! :)

    1. Haha, thanks, Sara :) Oh well, looks like I really have to start reading to truly get how awesome they really are!

  2. It's my first time taking part in the Debut Author Challenge, too! And omg I love so many of the books on your TBR list! Under the Never Sky, Insurgent, The Fault in Our Stars, Delirium, Shiver, and so many more :D

    1. Yay, Richa :D *high-fives* I've heard so many people gushing about these books, but strangely enough, I just never got round to reading them... So, this year will be the year!

  3. I wasn't trying to get you to read it :o but the dystopian world is really nice though. Good luck in finishing your challenge! >) seems like a pretty long list to me!

    1. Tadaa, gone, your name has disappeared ;) You guys are always talking about Alex and the killer endings! Well, my aim is 50 books this year. So hopefully I can ace the challenge *fingers-crossed*

    2. EXCUSEZ-MOI?! xD Oh trust me, you should put Delirium at the top of the list and finish it before all the assignments come in because once you start reading, you're more or less mentally-handicapped and Alex-loving and all sorts of emotions :D I should show you the screenies of Shi Le's reaction when she finished Delirium haha!!

    3. EEEEE, seriously?! I am totally conflicted now ._. Should I read it or should I not :O I bet Shi Le was like "What the Hell" when she read the ending of Delirium, so I better have the sequel on hand :D


I love comments, take your time and cruise around. Leave your links! I always comment back :-)

Wishing you lots of good books to come along your way!
