The book I'm most looking forward to on your list is Illusions of Fate! But I'm also looking forward to Little Author in the Big Woods, too! :)

And I told my Mom about a few of the Adult books on your list and she's looking forward to them! (And she loves Kristan Higgins books and hadn't seen the cover of this book yet!)
