The Scorch Trials by James DashnerI loved The Maze Runner, and the sequel didn't disappoint. The world-building is stellar, and it kept me on my toes. Can't wait for The Death Cure!
Audiobook Files: Excellent narration (same narrator as TMR), especially considering all the accents!
The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff
So creepy and wonderful! I'm not big on faerie/changeling lore, but this book hooked me, and I became really invested in Mackie, the main character.
Audiobook Files: The narration worked for me and didn't detract from the story at all!

Last Sacrifice by Richelle Mead
Anyone else afraid that the final book in a beloved series will crash and burn? Never fear -- this one left me totally satisfied.

Thirteen Days to Midnight by Patrick Carman
Audiobook Files: A solid narration that I really enjoyed, though I wasn't in love with how the male narrator did female voices.
Mostly Good Girls by Leila Sales
I laughed out loud many times at this vignette-style contemporary novel, and I desperately want an audiobook version to come out!

This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
One of my favorite Dessen books with a great main character and a love interest to root for. I still randomly think "Hate Spinnerbait" and giggle.
Audiobook Files: Average narration, but it kept me listening.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
If you're like me and have delayed reading this for whatever reason, DON'T WAIT any longer. And when you start, make sure you have enough time for a read-it-in-one-sitting binge. And tissues.
The Devil's Kiss by Sarwat Chadda
Audiobook Files: I'd choose book over audio, if possible. The narrator can make me forget it's set in modern times, and sometimes the snarky side of Billi's voice is lost.
How to be Popular by Meg Cabot
I've never met a Meg Cabot book I didn't like! This stand-alone is quirky and fun, a perfect light read that's classic Cabot.
Audiobook Files: Loved the narrator! Pitch perfect on the tone and voice.
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Oh, John, how I loved this book. Complex characters, amazing voice, and a gut-wrenching end. Must-read, without a doubt.
Audiobook Files: Narrator FTW! Definitely recommend.
Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater
* Frankie reviews it HERE.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
The lightest of John Green's books. So funny and quirky, and I dare you not to want to use "sitzpinkler" as your new go-to insult.
Audiobook Files: I didn't listen to the audio of this one, but it's the same narrator as Alaska, so it's probably worthwhile!
