There's A Book



Kelly over at YAnnabe had a great idea to preview a few Young Adult titles that may have been passed by in our hurry to pick up the next hot book. So, the above are a few books that I can honestly say I would recommend and enjoyed reading, although they may have been passed over by something more flashy. Enjoy! And check out Kelly’s site for more great recommendations from around the book blogging community.

I have recently reviewed both Flash Burnout by L.K. Madigan and The Maze Runner by James Dashner, make sure to check them out!
