By Your Side by Kasie West (Romance)
I really like this author for contemporary YA romance. Her heroines are interesting and unusual, the relationships develop slowly and never feel forced, and there is usually something intriguing about the plot. This one is set in a closed public library where the two characters are locked over a long weekend. The author does a fairly good job of making this plausible but there are still a few weak points there. Looking past that, I really enjoyed the character development and how the story discussed anxiety and panic attacks which the main character suffers from. -- Added by LibraryLaura1 on 03/04/2017

Crooked Kingdom
Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (Science Fiction/Fantasy)
This is a sequel to Six of Crows and both were really good - one of my top YA series. The author really developed her world well (it's set in the same world as the Shadow and Bone series but in a different part geographically). The main characters are a mismatched band of teens with very different backgrounds, skills, strengths and weaknesses. There are tense battles, romantic relationships, complicated plot twists and daring heists. This was an exciting series that was well developed, -- Added by LibraryLaura1 on 03/04/2017

Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen (Romance)
I enjoy reading YA even though I'm an adult and I really enjoy the books I've read of Sarah Dessen - her character development is great, the relationships and characters are complex, and they cover a variety of issues and topics. This one covered a girl who always does as she's told and but gets lost in her problematic brother's shadow and is overlooked by her parents. She finds an unlikely group of friends at her new school who help her learn to see herself in a new way. -- Added by LibraryLaura1 on 03/04/2017

A Suitable Boy by Vikram Seth (Historical Fiction)
Extremely interesting book that follows 4 Indian families over a long period of time. The only downside to the book is its length - 1349 pages! -- Added by cneubauer on 03/04/2017

Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway by F. Lynne Bachleda (Other Nonfiction)

Born a Crime
Born a Crime by Trevor Noah (Other Nonfiction)
Trevor Noah provides a riveting autobiography into his childhood in aparteid and post-aparteid South Africa. It is every bit as intelligently funny as the commedian himself. -- Added by jsean on 03/04/2017
