Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky: Awaken is a story of a future society that's addicted to computers (to a point where they barley interact face to face anymore), but can Maddie and her friends bring this system down? This book is one of the most haunting and memorable dystopian titles I've read. I loved the characters and premise Ms. Kacvinsky had in this; she's one author to keep an eye out for, no doubt about it.

Small Town Sinners by Melissa Walker: I read this book back in late August, nearly a year before its publication, and let me tell you, I tend to still think back to it to this day because Melissa Walker has created such a fantastic story within this one... a story about religion, first love, and what ties people together.

Darkness Becomes Her by Kelly Keaton: This book is haunting, dark, romantic, and nearly flawless! I read it one sitting and could barley put it down for even a second, which nearly never happens. Words of advice? If you love YA, get this book because it one of those rare books that shows just how incredible YA can be!

The Lipstick Laws by Amy Holder: If you loved the movie Mean Girls, you'll love this book even more because not only does it involve mean girls, but it's funny, charming, and addicting! Can't wait to see what Ms. Holder comes up with next! Even better, Amy is a fellow PA resident like yours truly and she sent me cool swag a while back. But that doesn't make me biased at all. ;)

Prom and Prejudice by Elizabeth Eulberg: While this has been available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble for the last week or so, the official release date is January 1, 2011. Anyhow, this book is yet another great one by Ms. Eulberg because not only is it witty and charming, but it's a take of off Pride and Prejudice.

The Liar Society by Lisa and Laura Roecker: When I first set down to read this book yesterday, I only expected to read a few pages and then put it down until it was closer to its March release date, but before I knew it I was hooked. Wit, romance, suspense, and action- this book has it all! I seriously can't express in words just how much I LOVED this book. Lisa and Laura? You've kind of created a fan-girl in me with this one. :) (Cover shown is not the final one)
