Thanks to everyone who commented here and on facebook, I now have a huge list of books to read and I can't wait to dive in. There were a couple of books that were mentioned by more than one person so I put those at the top of my list. Variant by Robison Wells was one of those so I chose it as my next read. I can't tell you how excited I am for this one! This guy was grown locally and Publisher Weekly has named Variant as one of the best books of 2011. Check it out!
Thank you to everyone who shared their favorite books with me.
I've got to get reading now!
