For our fourth blogiversary we decided to keep it simple so we’re each listing our favorite books from the last four years.

2012

Throne of Glass by Sarah J Maas                                              Attachments by Rainbow Rowell

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

This is the year I cheat.  Why?  Because it was the year I read and discovered Rainbow Rowel, Sarah J Maas, AND Leigh Bardugo.  Yeah, so now do you see my problem?
