Every January, with the start of the new year, we find ourselves making resolutions, promising that this year will be better than the last. Since 2018 kicked all of our butts, mentally, emotionally, and physically, I think we were all in dire need of a fresh start and new books!. So, a happy (albeit, belated) 2019 to you, dear readers!
We have four great YA reads that came out earlier this month that are the perfect way to start 2019.
