What are you reading?

Katie3I’ve been in a reading funk lately. Has that ever happened to you? For the past couple of weeks, I just haven’t really been into reading books. Which, as a librarian, is pretty much unprecedented. What teen books are you reading right now? What’s the best book you’ve read so far in 2015? What are you dying to read this year? I need suggestions – help!
