Books!

I've been feeling like I'm losing track of all the great new YA books that've come out in the last few years, so I put a bunch on hold at the library today. Right now I'm awaiting:

An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
Bras & Broomsticks by Sarah Mlynowski
Devilish by Maureen Johnson
Dramarama by E. Lockhart
The Foretelling by Alice Hoffman
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
What Happened to Cass McBride? by Gail Giles
Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr

as well as (not so new)

Tangerine by Edward Bloor
Thirsty by M.T. Anderson

I wanted to get Twisted (Laurie Halse Anderson) and Such A Pretty Girl (Laura Weiss), too, but the library system is annoying and for some reason has not even ordered Twisted yet, and they only have one copy of Such A Pretty Girl, which is reference. :(

What other YA books have you read recently that you'd recommend? Or are you hearing great things about? My to-read list can always use more titles!
