    @ Lauren & Sarah. Thanks! It was fun to think of the books that would fit into the 12 days. I wish Ashfall had a more appealing cover. It’s a terrific read.

    Absolutely brilliant Sharon! I can’t imagine how long it took you to think which books to use for your list. I just finished Ashfall myself and you are right. – It is a terrific read.

    Loved Ashfall. Haven’t heard of some of the other titles. I’ll have to check them out.
