  3. The Bourne Identity - Robert Ludlum
  4. Fallen - Lauren Kate
  5. Forgive My Fins - Tera Lyn Chils
  6. Midnight Kiss - Lara Adrian (the 1st in the series, so if this isn't it, not this one)

  1. Great list! I loved Good Grief by Lolly Winston.....

  2. Thanks for joining again Marce! I loved Bitten. I read Dracula too, but it wasn't really my thing. Hope you love your books this year!

  3. You got some great reads on your list. I loved Guernsey and Speak. Dirty Little Secrets and the girl who fell from the sky were good as well.

  4. I'd read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society - Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows - it's cute, written in letters format. The title bored me and made me stayed away, but heard so much about it that finally gave me and was pleasantly surprised. Not one of my all time fav, but I don't regret reading it.

    I'd read Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden A LONG, LONG time ago... didn't quite appreciate it then. Not sure if I'd like it now since I enjoy memoirs now (not that it's a real memoir...)

    Have heard good things about Speak - Laurie Halse Anderson (YA). Haven't read it though.

  5. I really liked 'Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society' and 'Fallen' was really good too.

    'Speak' is on my list of books to read this year.

  6. Speak is on my own list for this challenge, and Guernsey literary and Potato Peel Society is on my wishlist, but because I haven't actually read any of these, I can't give you a qualified opinion, but I DO wish you lots of luck! :)
