  1. Nice choices! And different from the ones I've been seeing this week. That Mystic City cover is gorgeous.

    1. So many were gorgeous this year but in the end the ones that really stood out to me made the list. For example.... no matter how busy a bookshelf is you can always spot The Way We Fall by it's bright yellow jacket. It might not be the prettiest cover in existence but it sure makes you remember it.
