  5. Maria's books are always my favorite. I buy them as soon as they come out and speed through them. They are a great escape from reality when stress and life drag me down. Love jumping into the life of her characters and living along with them as they move through their journeys. Cant wait for avry to show us a little more of her life.

  76. I don't think it's possible for Snyder to come to my country so I'll say she should visit a state she hasn't visited yet.
