The books of summer 2012

If I Stay (Gayle Forman)*
Revolution (Jennifer Donnelly)*
Heft (Liz Moore)
Before I Fall (Lauren Oliver)*
The Sky is Everywhere (Jandy Nelson)*
InZanesville (Jo Ann Beard)
Dreams of Joy (Lisa See)
Sea (Heidi Kling)*
The Chaperone (Laura Moriarty)
Tigers in Red Weather (Lisa Klaussmann)
The Late, Lamented Molly Marx (Sally Koslow)
Gone Girl (Gillian Flynn)
Chasing Brooklyn (Lisa Schroeder)*

I read some books I really enjoyed this past summer (Heft, InZanesville, The Chaperone, Tigers in Red Weather) and some that were just okay.  The books with asterisks are on the Gateway Readers list that is a part of the curriculum for the freshman English class I am teaching this semester.  The YA lit angst throughout each of the selections was rather tiresome for me, but I did really enjoy Revolution

Aren't you missing a couple? One of them starts with an F and ends with ifty Shades of Gray.
