I'm at 104 actual "pubbed books" read....however, I'm a voracious beta reader, and I'm pretty much topped my goal by reading more than 10 beta read books for critique partners. And since I'm on Winter Break, and there's still reading time to get some more pubbed books in!!!
My number one pick is The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. Words cannot adequately or eloquently do justice to this book. Emotions surrounding the whirlwind that is grief are so beautifully and accurately captured. I literally could not put it down, and I ended up reading late, late into the night.
Another favorite that comes in a close second is If I Stay by Gayle Forman. Another masterful book of love and loss and learning to live again. Cannot WAIT to read the sequel!!
While the best YA UF's for me was a tie between Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers & Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins.
