You've got lots of amazing books in your answers. This Song Will Save Your Life was one of my favourite books of the year too, such a brilliant book. Allegiant was my most disappointing read of the year too. I definitely need to get to 5th Wave this year, I've heard so many amazing things. Great answers. My End of Year Survey.

I need to read The 5th Wave, too. :) Also, that Splintered cover is incredible! I try not to judge by them, but it draws my eye every time I walk by it in the bookstore...giving in--must look up now!
