    I keep seeing the Lunar Chronicales on so many lists for this Re-telling topic. I am just so unsure about this series. It could be as fantastic as i keep hearing people say or it could be really bad to me. So i keep pushing the series back on my TBR pile so that i can still hope this series is as fantastic as i keep hearing :) Does that make sense to anyone else but me? I hope so.
    How did you like the Alex Flinn writing?
    I also want to read Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound, they sound pretty good.
    Fantastic list :)

    I really need to catch up on The Lunar Chronicles. Cinder made my list too, but I still haven’t made it to Cress :( A Court of Thorns and Roses is fabulous and Sarah J. Maas is one of my favorite authors too! Really enjoyed your list!

      The Lunar Chronicles are amazing! They are my mom’s favorite books haha. And I haven’t read Beastly for the same reason.
