Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature from The Broke and the Bookish.
This week we are looking forward to next year and listing the books we are most looking forward to reading. No small task! Since we’ve already listed the books on our Winter TBR and most anticipated sequels, and soon we’ll list debuts, this list doesn’t include any of those titles. Looking at last year’s list I read 7/10- it’s fun to look back and see what I was excited for last year.
I’m going to focus on Contemporary YA this time around. These are the top ten books I’m looking forward to in 2015:
1. All the Rage by Courtney Summers – A girl was assaulted but no one believes her because the attacker is the sheriff’s son. Now another girl is missing. April 14, St. Martin’s Griffin.
