We Can't Help But Wait!!!

Reading Song of the Day: "Can't Help But Wait" by Trey Songz (check it out on the Rock With Us tab)

Don't you love that Christmas morning feeling? You know the one where you're all excited about what's in the stocking or under your tree? Maybe you're too old for that now (like we are) but hearing about new YA books coming to stores near us gives us that Christmas morning feeling all over again. Since it's Monday and we kinda want to feel excited about something, we decided to share the upcoming YA books that we are most looking forward to.

What's that you say? This blog isn't big enough to put ALL of the books we can't wait to read? You're right...so we'll narrow it down to just a few.

Books we BOTH want to read!!

Not really anything I'm looking forward to in particlular. But I do have some good ones on my bookshelf that I'm dying to read such as, The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris. :)
