I'm so excited to see the film, even though I know it's going to rip my heart out and leave me crying for weeks. I'm loving the trailer, the cast are fantastic and it all looks so faithful to the book.
What are your thoughts? Let me know!
10. More YA novels from a guy's POV. After reading Beautiful Creatures, I've wanted more stories from the eyes of the guy!
9. A New Adult novel that doesn't have sex as the main plot. New Adult is an exciting new genre, but I'm noticing that most of the stories revolve around sexual awakening? As a new adult myself, my problems are more along the lines of finding a job after university...
8. A book set in Hawaii. I just think that Hawaii is such a beautiful place, a place I would LOVE to visit, yet I never seem to read any books that are set there? Those beaches and big waves would make a gorgeous setting for a story.
7. A contemporary romance novel with something a little unique about it. I like a good romance story, but I'm getting tired of the same old cliches. I need more stories like Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. There was so much more excitement to that story than a simple boy-meets-girl romance.
6. More books set in the Flapper Girl era. Reading the Flappers series by Jillian Larkin was one of the best decisions I made last year. It's one of my favourite times in history and I'd really love more books set during that time.
5. Another series like The Mediator by Meg Cabot. Okay, if you haven't read this series, you really need to. I just feel like this is a horribly underrated story. Suze Simon is still my favourite YA female character of all time. This series managed a perfect balance of romance, action and humor. It wasn't so dark and intense all the time like a lot of YA series' now. I just really love it, okay??
4. MORE BRITISH YOUNG ADULT NOVELS. Yeah, this is a thing I'm pretty passionate about. I feel like a lot of debut British authors who set their stories in British high schools are finding it pretty hard to get their stories noticed in other countries. I know Year 9 doesn't sound as exciting as a Sophomore year, but still...
3. Ever since reading Between Shades of Gray by Rute Sepetys back in 2011, I've wanted more stories like it. Stories about the lesser known parts of the World Wars. We read plenty about the holocaust and the evacuations, but there is so much more about those times that deserves a story.
2. Lead female characters WITH GLASSES! As a girl who has grown up wearing glasses, I certainly feel that there should be a leading female character with some frames. I know we've had Harry Potter, but he was a boy. I want a girl. Give me a good character to Cosplay as at conventions because I have a really hard time finding one!
1. A YA series that has an Ancient Egyptian theme. This is something that I really, really need in my life. We have so many stories about Greek Gods and myths, yet barely any on the Egyptians. Their history is fascinating! Come on, authors, I'm begging you here!
Dylan Mahoney is living one big unholy lie.
Thanks to a humiliating and painfully public sexting incident, Dylan has become the social pariah at her suburban Chicago high school. She's ignored by everyone--when she's not being taunted--and estranged from her two best friends. So when Dylan discovers the blogs of homeschooled fundamentalist Christian girls, she's immediately drawn into their fascinating world of hope chests, chaperoned courtships, and wifely submission.
Blogging as Faith, her devout and wholesome alter ego, Dylan befriends Abigail, the online group's queen bee. After staying with Abigail and her family for a few days, Dylan begins to grow closer to Abigail (and her intriguingly complicated older brother). Soon, Dylan is forced to choose: keep living a lie . . . or come clean and face the consequences.

Lives will be lost, love sacrificed, and the whole world changed in the sixth and last installment of the Mortal Instruments series!
