I wish that there was a finalized list from publishers of all the great books we can look forward to this year. (Though, maybe there is and I don’t know about it). However, through the grapevine, I’ve heard about several titles that I’m looking forward to reading and sharing with students in 2014. I’m sure there are many, many other great titles that are slated to be released, but I don’t know about them yet. If you know of some, please share! Also, feel free to share any 2014 MG/YA novels!
(these are in no particular order, and some do not have covers yet).
