I Hab a Cold

When I’m sneezing and achy and tired and coughing, it makes my head hurt to be at the computer all day, so I’m hoping to get some reading done instead. And besides the submissions I have to get to, there’s this whole wonderful list of YALSA’s best books for young adults, including Maureen Johnson‘s Suite Scarlett. Whee!
As I think I mentioned, I sat in on some of the discussions about this titles, and already ran out (when I was feeling better) and bought some of the other books they cited as good. Do I feel a little guilty about reading finished books when I have a lot of submissions and queries to get to? Sure. But if I’m not keeping up with what’s out there, what’s getting publishing, I’m not doing my job. (And yes, I can justify anything, thank you for asking.)
So what books on this list (or on the Top Ten list, if 86 titles is a bit too much for you) are on your need-to-read-SOON! list?
