What I am reading-Divergent by Veronica Roth. A new dystopian novel by a first-time author. I am enjoying the drama more than the writing. One of the hottest books in my library this year.
What I recently completed- Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. OMG I love this book...the storyline is new and fresh, the writing superb, the action is dramatic, the characters are unique and interesting, the setting vivid. I also finished this week Entwined by Heather Dixon a dark, richly plotted retelling of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses." This book suffered from audiobook syndrome...it took too long "to read" in this format.
What I'm listening to- Flip by Martyn Bedford. A new twist on a old tale of body swapping. This one really poses a serious question, "What would you do if..." I'm actually not listening to this right now but will finish up the audiobook when I return home from vacation. When I complete it I will have completed my whole 2012 Mock Printz reading list. Woot! Woot!
What is up next- The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. This book has been on my bedside table for at least three years. Ugh. Now it is an upcoming book club selection so I will finally have an excuse to finish it, though I am sure I will need to start from the beginning again. As a Pulitzer Prize winner I am sure it is well-done but I haven't heard wonderful reports from "the man on the street." Have any of you read it? Your thoughts? My goal is to have it half finished by the time I get home. Guess I'd better get reading!
