You have great lists here! I love how you separated them into different genres.

Ever After High! At Your Service! Lucky Me! I enjoyed them all a lot! A few of the Picture Books, Non-Fiction, and YA books are on my TBR list! And I know my Mom loved the Jenn McKinlay book a lot! :)

Ha! I loved that you did every age group! I'm currently reading Isla right now. It made my list, though, because I know I'll love it.

Oh... you read Raging Heat! I'm a bit behind in my Castle reading; I still need to read Frozen Heat.

I love how you broke this out!

I also really enjoyed Every After High and am looking forward to reading the other books in the series. And I think I need to move Just Like the Movies up my list...I recently read Not in the Script and have been looking for some read alikes and this might just be the one for me. =)

My TTT is here.

Tell me that your 340 includes picture books -- otherwise, I'm going to feel like a HUGE book blogging slacker! I'll be lucky to get 140 this year. I read some chunksters this year, though, and some good ones at that, so, yeah.

ISLA is on my list to read soon. I've heard tons of great things about it.
