Okay, I’m probably going to regret this, but I’m doing it anyway. I’ve been staring at my TBR piles for forever, and realized I have quite a few young adult books sitting in those piles. And, out of the twenty-two books I’ve read this year, I’ve only read one YA book, and I loved it! (It was also my audiobook of the month for this month, so go check that out!)
I kind of can’t decide which one to pick up next, and I know a lot of you are big readers of YA, so I thought I’d try something new and ask your opinion. Yes, that’s right, you get to vote on which of these books will make it onto my March reading list. Vote in the comments for which of these five books you’d like to see me read next month!
The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White. This has been sitting on my TBR for a bit now, and I was really looking forward to reading it in October as a Halloween read. Which obviously didn’t happen. And I need to stop saving scary books for October, because it’s acceptable to read them any time I want. Right?
Dumplin’ by Julie Murphy. I have not yet read Dumplin’, but I ended up watching the movie first (which I never do – I still haven’t seen The Help because I haven’t read the book yet) and really enjoyed it. It was super cute. Plus, it’s been living on my shelf for a really long time.
Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi. I’m honestly a little bit afraid this will win, not because I don’t want to read it, but because it is a large fantasy book and I have a lot on my TBR right now. But I think I might love this one, so if you pick it, I will read it next month. (Field of Dreams, anyone?)
In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire. Lowkey, I’m hoping this one wins because it’s nice and short. Also, I’ve loved every book in this series so far, and I really want to read this. I feel like I should be more impartial, so just ignore me and vote for the one you think I should read first. I promise I won’t be mad if you choose a book longer than this one. (Mostly.)
On the Come Up by Angie Thomas. Finally, we have my most recent YA addition to my library. I loved The Hate U Give, and while I’m not quite as excited about this storyline, I’m sure it will be amazing. Because Angie Thomas.
Yes, I will really read whichever of these gets the most votes by March 1. You have eight days… GO!
I will also accept votes via Twitter if that’s easier – just tweet me at @biblioadvntrs
