Questions for YOU. What are you reading? What can't you wait to read next?

I'm reading CODE NAME VERITY (Hyperion, May 2012) by Elizabeth Wein. Just started it last night before bed and it's up on my nightstand calling to me right now. I'll be lucky if I make it through the day without sneaking up there to continue. All the wonderful things I heard about it appear to be true. 

I also picked up a copy of Lemony Snicket's HORSERADISH: Bitter Truths You can't avoid (HarperCollins, 2007). It's full of lovely little bits of wisdom, such as: 

"If writers wrote as carelessly as some people talk, then adhasdh asdglaseut[bn[padlgkhasdfasdf."


"A library is like an island in the middle of a vast sea of ignorance, particularly if the library is very tall and the surrounding area has been flooded."

Next? I will work up the courage to read Libba Bray's THE DIVINERS (Little, Brown/Today!). Did you watch the book trailer? SCARY! (In a good way...) I'm not usually drawn to scary books, but her YA novels GOING BOVINE and BEAUTY QUEENS are two of my favorites of all time. Both were so surprising, so unlike anything else... I'm very curious to see what she does with this new book. 

What are you reading? What's your teen reading? (If you have one handy, ask him/her!) I'm curious! 


  1. Hi Sharon! I just finished DRAMARAMA by E. Lockheart, which was so much fun for this former drama camp geek/theatre major - highly recommended for anyone who likes (or liked) Glee. Now I'm reading an ARC of Marissa Burt's STORY'S END. And I can't for REQUIEM by Lauren Oliver ... but I have to wait a few months.

  2. Joy, you aways have great book recommendations. I will check these out!
