 It's fall y'all. The most pleasant weather time (says me) (but I'm right) AND when all the YA books you've been waiting for drop! There is so much exciting stuff coming out in September that my initial list was pages and pages long. I couldn't narrow it down, so I just took a random sampling. 

If you're ever looking for recommendations, drop into the library, or email me at I LOVE to talk books!
