Young Adult Titles

Recently finished the two Maggie Stiefvater books in the Books of Faerie. A first read of Lament A Faerie Queen's Deception  and  the second read of Ballad A Gathering of Fairie.

Then Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha Van Leer 

And am just beginning Cinder by Marissa Meyer which is listed as Book One in the Lunar Chronicles.
