I’d totally like to see a YA story where the epilogue is like “oh, and they broke up three months later; once the we-saved-the-world-together high wore off, they released they literally had nothing in common, and also that shared life-altering trauma is a poor basis for a stable relationship”.
Recently we got an inquiry through our Book Drop recommendation service - which is open all year round for personalized reading suggestions, perfect if you’re stuck for a weekend read! Or, you know, anytime - for a fan of The Sky Is Everywhere and Fangirl. And the first thing we thought of (after replying, of course!) was, that would make such a good booklist - books about the bookworms, word nerds, enthusiasts, and all-around talented characters who make up some of our favorite books.
Anyone else having trouble believing that 2014 is nearly over? We’d be sad about it, this being an exceptional year for books, except 2015 is poised to be equally terrific - for example, the books we’ve listed here as some of those that we’re really, really looking forward to. :)
And this is just for the first part of the year! There are so many more books debuting next year (new A.S. King, anyone? New Leila Sales?), and these are (mostly) standalones with just a couple of series kick-offs, but what about all of the series entries, companions, and starters? Books that don’t even have covers yet but we don’t care - we just can’t wait to read them???? Visit our Goodreads shelf for all of our TBR in 2015 reads, or our Pinterest board for YA Next-In-Series titles, and click on the book titles below for those currently listed in catalog.
It’s really gloomy and rainy outside right now, so I thought this photo was appropriate. And yes, that is real rain on a precious book. I hope Booklr appreciates this sacrifice. (jk no book was harmed in the taking of this photo. I wiped it off and it’s fine.)
