I'm pretty happy with the NYT picks, even though I never read Sunrise Over Fallujah. I can't get behind any list with TDHOFL-B, however.
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart
Ink Exchange by Melissa Marr
City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare
Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundell
As an aside, even though I read The Disreputable History months ago and loved it and have given it prime display space at the circulation desk and recommended it to students, it hasn't been checked out once. I'm sad about this, and I don't know what else to do.
