  1. I definitely want to read that Rennison series. As someone who’s read almost all of John Green’s work (excluding Paper Towns which for some reason is never at the library when I want it ARRGH!), I can say TFiOS is his best. But I can also promise you they all have very high LPPs (laughs per page).

  2. Forgot that I read The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie this year! Let’s insert that at #3 and kick everything else back a number.
