    1. 'A Time for Dancing' had me teary-eyed and I'm usually not a crier during books haha. It's a great read! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
      Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. I can still remember being in high school and seeing people secretly reading Go Ask Alice. It scared me to death.

  3. I still need to pick up Salem Falls and the Pact. I've read a couple of books by her, but not those. The Lovely Bones was a hard one for me. Great list!

    1. They are both great books. I love Jodi Picoult's writing, the stories she tells are so though provoking. The Pact had me depressed for ages though, it was just so heart wrenching.

      Thanks for stopping by :)

    1. It's a pretty good book. Short and sweet but with a lot of heart and soul. It's actually what got me back into reading after 3 years without picking up a book.

  6. I LOVE your list! I haven't seen anyone else mention A Time for Dancing, which I've owned for years and it tore my heart out every time I read it.
    The Pact! Cut! Salem Falls! I've read all these except Stolen, which is on my TBR.
    Here's my Top Ten!
