14. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh - Completed 8th October
15. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Quite disappointing for me because the characters were not the ones I got to know in Book 1 and 2. The ending was okay because I guess the book being a dystopian was not likely to head for a very happy ending.
16. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han - Completed 4th December
Got me seriously hooked on contemporary/coming of age genre. Loved it!
17. It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han - Completed 5th December
Explores the love triangle. I never thought I would switch ships but I have!
18. Alanna The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce - Completed 6th December
Excellent adventure book. Not so good with the fighting scenes but the journey and reading about Alanna grow up was the highlight.
19. The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe by CS Lewis
I gave the series a try since the new Narnia trailer looked so epic. I didn't really like the book. I felt disconnected with the characters and couldn't care less what happened to them!
20. Forever by Judy Blume - Completed 10th December
Not much of a plot for this one but quite informative about the issue of sex.
21. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
Addictive! The chemistry between Alex and Brittany was sizzling!
22. Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles
As awesome as the first. Loved the buildup of the relationship between Carlos and Kiara!!!
23. I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore - Completed 16th December
24. The Opposite of Invisible by Liz Gallagher - Completed 17th December
25. Shug by Jenny Han

I really can't wait to see what you've got! So Hush, Hush didn't quite live up to the hype? Too bad, I just bought it...but who knows, maybe I'll absolutely just love it. It sounds like Fallen is going to be really good, though! I'll refer you on the giveaway you posted!
