...but I'm ready for this school year to be over so I can enjoy reading books for FUN!
So I thought I'd check out some recommended great books for teens, and found a pretty decent list on the YALSA page.
Here's what's on my TO READ list for Summer 2014:
1) Just One Day by Gayle Forman
2) When We Wake by Karen Healey
Here's the blurb for this one: In 2027, sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl--playing the guitar, falling in love, and protesting the wrongs of the world with her friends. But then Tegan dies, waking up 100 years in the future as the unknowing first government guinea pig to be cryogenically frozen and successfully revived. Appalling secrets about her new world come to light, and Tegan must choose to either keep her head down or fight for a better future.
3) Dark Triumph by Robin LaFevers
This is the 2nd in the "His Fair Assassin" series. The first book was Grave Mercy. Here's the 4-1-1 on the 2nd book: Sybella's duty as Death's assassin in 15th-century France forces her return home to the personal hell that she had finally escaped. Love and romance, history and magic, vengeance and salvation converge in this sequel to Grave Mercy.
