  1. Those charts for YA fiction were interesting. I didn't know there was going to be an Altered prequel! I think I like that cover best in the series =)

  2. I love the covers of There Will Come a Time and Royally Lost the most and I definitely want to read both of those books!

  3. The Strange Ever After books looks pretty fun! Also, that article on what's dead in YA was really interesting. I'm glad they are finally calling for an ending to dystopian and vampires. Too much! Too much!
