One of my 30×30 goals is to read 100 books this year. I’m well on my way—Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink is book 55. (And I’m really, really enjoying it, btw.) I’ve read almost exclusively YA, focusing on newish releases, and I feel like it’s given me a good sense of the market and of my own taste. As the year goes on, I find myself reading more and more analytically and critically and learning so much.
These are my favorite books so far:
Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers
Fade by Lisa McMann
The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart
Shadowed Summer by Saundra Mitchell
The Forest of Hands & Teeth by Carrie Ryan
The Season by Sarah MacLean
Skinned by Robin Wasserman
Faery Rebels: Spell Hunter by R.J. Anderson
Sea Change by Aimee Friedman
Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev
Okay, 5 More
I Heart You, You Haunt Me by Lisa Schroeder
Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist by David Leviathan & Rachel Cohn
The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan
Love You Hate You Miss You by Elizabeth Scott
Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
What are YOUR favorite reads of this year? Did any of the above make your list?
Tomorrow I’ll post the top 10 books I’m looking forward to this fall.
