When I was growing up one of my favorite parts of summer was tackling whatever summer reading list the teacher passed out. Other kids might have seen the list and groaned, but I would stare at the piece of paper with an “I-will-crush-you!” gleam in my eye and race to my local library.
Last week I asked friends of The YA Gal Facebook page to help me craft a 2015 Summer Reading list of five books. There were so many wonderful suggestions, that I couldn’t limit myself to five books. All of these are “must reads” in the YA community. I can’t consider myself and educated YA reader without knowing them, could I? Of course not! That’s why I chose seven.
I ordered them straight from Amazon and they should arrive today. Can’t wait!
