Okay, rgz. We used to run this thread over at the MySpace forum, and it was a great resource! Let's try it here.
Leave your comments and tell us what you are reading. What do you find is a must read this season?
I'll hotlink this entry in the top left panel so we can continue to access it and add to it.
Here are my latest thanks to Goodreads:

Not necessarily new books, but ones I've read lately & loved:
- "The Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading" by Charity Tahmaseb & Darcy Vance

- "My Big Nose & Other Natural Disasters" by Sydney Salter
- "The Summer I Turned Pretty" by Jenny Han
- "Same Difference" - Siobhan Vivian
- "My Fair Godmother" by Janette Rallison
Thanks, Ashley! I caught The Summer I Turned Pretty, too. And Same Difference!
Love Ashley's list!
Just from the past month, I'll add:
"Looks" by Madeleine George
"Liar" by Justine Larbalestier
Ash (haven't read, but it defintely sounds like a must-read!)
Another Faust (I need to read this one too!)
I agree with Melissa on Liar (haven't read Looks) which I'm currently reading.
Oh, Looks was my fav read last year!
Thanks for this very good . I really appreciate this article. Many people will find it very useful.
I just read Heather Davis's NEVER CRY WEREWOLF. So much fun!
Click here for my Best of... picks for every month! I post them at my blog and my website every month and every year.
I really liked Ten Cents a Dance by Christine Fletcher, North of Beautiful by Christina Headley, Greater Gains by K.M. Peyton, Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler. Next week I am leading a discussion of Heaven to Betsy by Maud Hart Lovelace. Anyone in the Boston area is invited to come!
Lorie Ann: We must discuss Girl to the Core and Same Difference. I'm always so happy when you try something I recommended to ya! :)
I am not a YA, but am a firm believer that excellent YA lit is enjoyable by old people as well. I highly recommend "Choke Creek" by Lauren Small. It is an excellently written novel about a teenage girl in Denver during the Vietnam war and a tale about how the past influences the present.
