What a great list of books! My mom really enjoyed The Alice Network and I've been meaning to pick it up for a while. I am also in love with the illustrated Harry Potter books... they are beyond gorgeous. The Passion of Dolssa and The Perfect Horse are both ones that I've been wanting to read, so I'm really happy to see them on this list! Looks like a great year of reading!
