What I am currently reading:1. Me and Earl, and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews- this book is getting some attention because of the similar theme, cancer, to The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. It is funny and quirky but I am enjoying it.
2. The Iron King by Julie Kagawa-This is the first book in the Iron Fey series which is hot, hot, hot in my library. I am reading it to evaluate if I want to include it in my Nifty Fifty cart of special books. So far so good but I'm only on the 8th chapter. I keep pushing it off to the side for other books.
3. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey- This is my book club selection for the month. I must bear down to finish this book by Wednesday afternoon. I'm a little over half way finished. So far I find the writing captivating.
What I am listening to:-The Running Dream by Wendolin Van Draanen- winner of the Schneider Family Book Award for books that deal with the realities of living with a disability. I am quite impressed.
What I've recently finished:1. Shanghai Girls by Lisa See. This book is a winner. About the lives of two sisters who were beautiful girls in China before WWII and now live in the USA.
2. The Obsidian Blade by Pete Hautman. The first book in the Klaatu Trilogy. I had a very hard making any traction on this book. I did enjoy the surprises toward the end of the book, many were twists I wasn't expecting.
What I hope to read next:
I still have one library book next to my bed and several audiobooks that are calling out to me:
-Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. "When Aria, a sheltered and fragile Dweller, is exiled from her home in Reverie, she must face The Death Shop, a land filled with cannibals and dangerous energy storms, and her only hope for staying alive depends on Outsider Perry, a savage hunter" Sounds ominous, doesn't it?
-The Hunger Games (Audiobook)- I've read the book now I thought I'd have a listen.
-Lockdown: Escape from the Furnace #1 by Alexander Gordon Smith- A popular choice in my library with boys.
