  1. Thirteen Reasons Why seems to be quite a popular choice. Tough books are so difficult to read.
    My TTT :)

    1. They definitely are. I had a difficult time with this week's list because I don't usually seek out books that make me cry too hard. I have avoided so many books that people have mentioned because I don't think I could handle it. Thanks for visiting!

  2. Great list. TFiOS was on my list too. =) Thanks for sharing!

  3. Good list, I love The Fault in Our Stars and Thirteen Reasons Why as well.

  4. I'm just kicking myself for forgetting to include Dreamland. Grr. Oh well.

    I seriosuly need to read Easy. I keep hearing how wonderful it is, but I haven't gotten to it yet.

    Did you like When He Was Wicked? I thought it was okay, and I love that JQ was breaking the mold or whatever, but it wasn't my favorite. I think I would have liked it more if the heroine didn't get together with her dead husbands cousin. Maybe if the guys weren't related. I don't know.

    1. I liked it, but I will admit the cousin thing took some time to get used to. It made me cry so I think that signals a good book for me. The second epilogue of WHWW was my favorite of all of them in her new Bridgertons: Happily Ever After anthology!
