My New To Be Read Pile (Thank You 2014 YA Superlatives Blogfest!)

I had plans to join the YA Superlatives Blogfest this year, but I didn't make it. Fingers crossed for next year. That hasn't stopped me from hopping from blog to blog, seeing what books other voracious readers have enjoyed in 2014. These are the books I discovered:

REVOLUTION by Jennifer DonnellyAn angry, grieving seventeen-year-old musician facing expulsion from her prestigious Brooklyn private school travels to Paris to complete a school assignment and uncovers a diary written during the French revolution by a young actress attempting to help a tortured, imprisoned little boy--Louis Charles, the lost king of France.

SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE by Morgan Matson

Damsel Distressed by Kelsey Macke

Now, Imogen must resign herself to be crushed under the ever-increasing weight of her pain, or finally accept the starring role in her own life story.


Eighteen-year-old Vivienne, lady-in-waiting to the future queen Guinevere, is secretly apprenticed to Merlin the magician and helps him try to create a steam-powered metal beast to defeat Morgan La Fey, King Arthur's sorceress sister, when she declares war on Camelot.
