I'm getting better. :) Also, I did annotations for this one because I was inspired by Kristi who did some in hers. I hope mine are just as funny, if not funnier (not that this is a competition or anything. but I do kinda hope I'm funnier).

Heist Society by Ally Carter
The Sweetheart of Prosper County by Jill S. Alexander
Soulstice by Simon Holt
Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
