Forget about the trillion-books-long lists! Here is a cheat-sheet with some of the books on my radar for 2016.
It’s a New Year! In the reading world, this means about a trillion more books will be released into your bookstores and libraries. Which is awesome but let’s face it, there’s no way to keep up. If you’re like me, you won’t get to read all of the books this year. There are tons of lists floating around but it’s pretty easy to forget when there are so many to choose from. For your convenience, I’ve compiled a 2016 short-list! Here is a one (maybe two!) YA book pick for each month of 2016! Debuts and non-debuts included.
Add these books to your TBR, put them on the to-buy list in your calendar and be sure to request them from your local library!
