At the beginning of the year, our Fresh Fiction Reviewers set a goal to publish
2,400 reviews by the end of the year. We’ve published just over 2,600! We have some
amazing, and prolific, reviewers here at Fresh Fiction and I’m so proud and
be part of this group. 2,600…that’s a lot of books and I know that next year we’re
going to set our goals higher.
That means, I need to read more books! Before I make a list of all the books I’m
looking forward to, I want to look back on some of my favorite YA books I read this
FLAME by Amy Kathleen Ryan
|The conclusion to the Sky Chasers series, FLAME by Amy
Kathleen Ryan delivers the same intensity, surprises, and heartbreaking

butt when she needs to.

dark humor to create a story I could not put down. I love the sweet romance, but I
love even more that Cynthia’s main concern is protecting her best friend.
GIRL FROM THE WELL by Rin Chupeco
GIRL FROM THE WELL
|The first chapter of GIRL FROM THE WELL captures the
terrifying and haunting existence of Okiku, a spirit of vengeance who can never

not put it down.
THE SPIRITGLASS CHARADE by Colleen Gleason
THE SPIRITGLASS CHARADE
