As always, Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. You can find them here.
Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Hunt is one of my rock stars. I posted once on my Facebook page about how one of my students loved One for the Murphys, and she wrote the student a letter and mailed it to school. Because I teach struggling and/or reluctant readers, this was HUGE in her world. I will forever buy her books and share them with people.

Shadow Scale (Seraphina #2) by Rachel Hartman
Dragons! Dragons! Yay, Dragons!
I Was Here by Gayle Forman

Lair of Dreams (The Diviners #2) by Libba Bray
The Diviners was a tome. It took me two weeks to get through, which is longer than books typically take, but I loved the world and the music.

The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard
My interest in this one comes from last week’s Top Ten Tuesday, because I saw it on a bunch of people’s lists. It’s the cover. It’s totally the cover.
The Living by Matt de la Pena
While this is not a new release, it is coming out in paperback in January. de la Pena is another of my rock stars.
