  11. I've heard so much good stuff about All The Bright Places! I need to read it. And I haven't read The Lunar Chronicles yet, but I finally bought Cinder, so it's happening ASAP. I think my favorite author I've discovered this year is Victoria Schwab. Though Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is my favorite book this year!
