If I'm being honest this year hasn't been the best in books for me. I don't know if it's because I'm being more critical of the things I read or if I've just read so much YA over the last four years that I can spot a trope a mile away. I've read nearly 100 books and I've only awarded seven 5 stars. These though are the standout new authors I've read this year!
1 Heather Brewer (The Cemetery Boys)2 Laura Ruby (Bone Gap)
3 Martine Leavitt (Calvin)
5 Susan EE (Angelfall)
7 Sandy Hall (A Little Something Different)
8 Melissa Grey (The Girl at Midnight)
10 Rosamund Hodge (Crimson Bound)
