1. The Piper’s Son (Melina Marchetta)
I’ve been putting it off because I’m worried that I won’t love it as much as Saving Francesca, which this book is a sequel to, but I’m not going to let that fear stand in my way any longer – I will read and very hopefully love this book!
2. Blue Lily, Lily Blue (Maggie Stiefvater)
I’ve already checked this book out twice from the library and still haven’t read it because something keeps coming up – first I wasn’t getting to it in time because I had too many other books and then I got into a reading slump. I am determined to change that, though, and finally check it out and actually READ it!
3. I Was Here (Gayle Forman)
I already have the ebook on hold. I’m a little scared to read it because it involves a best friend’s suicide, and I already know that Gayle Forman can write devastating stories, but I also know that those stories can be amazing as well, so I just have to read it!
4. I’ll Meet You There (Heather Demetrios)
I also have this ebook on hold. I really enjoyed Heather Demetrios’s debut, Something Real, and have heard nothing but good things about this book, so I hope I’ll enjoy it as much as everyone else!
5. Fire Fall (Bethany Frenette)
This is the last book in the Dark Star trilogy, so I’m really curious to see how it’ll all end and what’ll happen!
I don’t normally put rereads on this list, but I really want to focus on rereading a lot, and having them on this list makes me more likely to do that. I’ve found that rereading is really good for me right now – with all the stress of school and personal issues, it can be so comforting to fall back into these stories that I already know I enjoy and love. Obviously I still want to read new books, but I really like having one new book and one reread on hand at all times right now. I also haven’t reread four of these books yet (all but The Summoning), so I’m really excited to see what I’ll think of them the second time around, and whether I might appreciate them even more!
