  1. Great list! I have Carve The mark on my list too! I'm keeping my fingers crossed it's as good as it sounds. I'm hoping I will at least get around to reading some of V.E. Schwab and Laini Taylor in 2017 too.

  22. Good list! I'm enjoying seeing so much fantasy on people's lists this week. I didn't put some of these on my list because I need to read the authors' earlier series first, but some of these are definitely going to end up on my to-read-someday list.

  25. I want half these books! Definitely sequestering myself to my room once I get my hands on Schwab's ACOL. And ughhh I really need to finish the other two books after Daughter of Smoke and Bone, because I want the Taylor book now, too. Caraval also made my list, and Valiant is definitely something on my TBR, though didn't quite make it to my top ten this week.

  26. Caraval totally should have made my list (it was REALLY popular this week) and I'm also curious about Carve the Mark. It sounds really interesting. :)

    Thanks so much, as always, for the Finding Wonderland stop, Lauren.

  30. You have some awesome picks this week! I've seen Carve the Mark, Strange the Dreamer, and Caraval on a lot of lists this week. Though they've been on my radar for quite a while, I'm don't actually know what they are about. I was SO close to putting Literally on my list! I hope you love all of these picks next year!
