Telekinetic super powers in a dystopian world?  Everyone wants you…but for good or evil?  Pulse by Patrick Corman reminds me a lot of the new NBC drama Believe  with a YA twist.





Find love, for love in a broken world will comfort you. Hold on to hope; it will sustain you. Have faith, for in the end it will save you.

Tomorrow I am hosting a hot chocolate and story time event in the library for classes.  I thought I’d use this opportunity to re-cap some of the hottest YA books from 2013 with readers, hoping to put just a few more books in their hands during Winter Break.

This playlist contains 34 book trailers for YA books released in 2013.  I chose not to include sequels and installments in series, but instead, I’ll be making a special playlist for new installments from 2013.
