On My Bookshelf

Below are three lists of books – ones I’ve read, some I hope to read very soon, and others I just couldn’t finish. Go ahead, browse the titles. Perhaps you’ll find something new to love. Remember: You don’t have to read everything an author writes just because you loved one book or series by said individual. I do, however, love Dickerson’s and DuPrau’s and Hedlund’s series, so that’s why they’re all there!
