Normally I would have a winter TBR list full of books that will be releasing this winter. This year I’m serving on the Michigan Reading Association’s Great Lakes Great Books Award committee, so I’m trying to read as many 2013 releases as I can. I’ve received quite a few recommendations from friends and I always like adding to my already long list of books to read. Today’s post consists mostly of books I still want to read and consider for the award along with a few 2014 releases that I picked up at NCTE.
I’d love to know what’s on your list! If you’ve read any fantastic 2013 YA releases this year please tell me about them in the comments!
P.S. Sorry this isn’t the most aesthetically pleasing or informative post; I have poetry presentations to grade so I’m rushing. :/
