    I love that you’ve done two lists!
    I agree with a lot of the characters on your dystopian list (but there’s a few of the books that I still need to read!)
    And Wes & Dexter! YES!
    Great lists πŸ™‚

    Kerrick and Avery! YESSSSS. Although, I still need to read book 2.

    Also! Hurrah for including Cricket Bell, he is utterly wonderful. πŸ™‚

    Nice! I need to catch up on my dystopian books. I haven’t read a lot of them, but I’m super hyped after reading all lists with dystopian characters.

      I’m glad. I’m kind of a dystopian junkie. ~K

    I love Cricket Bell. I love when authors make smart character awesome. Aside from Peeta, I don’t know who any of the dystopian characters are, though I’ve heard of them. I’m always afraid they’ll disappoint…

    I want to hug your list Daphne! And Kiki… I really really REALLY want to read the books by Maria V. Snyder, but our library doesn’t have the first one! Booo!

    Great list. I’ve just had too much UF on the brain & couldn’t think of anything more than all the UF pushing I’ve been doing on TTT.

    Yay Team Peeta! And Dexter is adorable. And Perry and Will are pretty bad ass characters. I have The Fault in our Stars, If I Stay, and Lola on my TBR. Must read soon. πŸ˜€

      i think you’ve picked the three best books from the entire list for your TBR. The fault in our stars is one of my top 5 favorite books from last year.

    I love your list for dystopian, Maria V. Snyder is an amazing author. Even though I haven’t really read anything on your contemporary list, I heard amazing things about them! πŸ™‚
