Okay, okay, I'll get down off my high of finishing and get onto the post.
Want to know one of the perks of being part of a debut group like the Lucky 13s? If we have an ARC to spare, we send it on tour to each other. I haven't read all the ones coming out this spring, but these are some I've read and loved, and am dying for them to come out this year.

I have no words for the brilliance of this book. The voice was INCREDIBLE! And it was so very well written. The whole time I was reading, I was marveling at the amount of work that went into it, and how many revisions it must've taken to get the switching between time frames so perfect. I was so sucked in! It was one of those books where it was just killing me whenever I couldn't be in the middle of reading it.
It was SO GOOD!

This is one of those books I wish I'd have written! I mean seriously-- telling the story of the twelve year old Rumplestiltskin? Brilliant! So fun and clever and different and with such great voice. Plus, ohmygosh-- isn't that cover the greatest? I love me a good middle grade cover.

This book had such a fascinating premise (girl whose family was in Witness Protection and she didn't know why, bad guys after them, frequent moves, the repercussions of all that), and it was backed up with equally fascinating characters that were so real. I was rooting for them every step of the way!

This book made me realize that pacing is one of the NUMBER ONE things in a book for me. The pacing was incredible! And it made the book un-putdown-able. It was freakingly amazing good. The characters were so likeable and unique and funny and REAL. The story was amazing, and I cannot say enough good things about the pacing. Seriously-- I haven't read a book with pacing this spot-on in a very long time.
