To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?
My current read is The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson.
I just heard it was supposed to be good, but didn't know anything about it other than the blurb. It took me a couple of chapters to get used to Lennie's voice, but now I love, love, love it.
Because apparently I am all about love stories lately.
Delirium was great. I'll post my review on Friday.
Real Live Boyfriends was hilarious. Ruby is possibly one of my most favorite YA characters. (I still can't tell if the girl on the cover is missing a finger, though, and this perplexes me more than it should)
Up next, I'm trying to decide what to read. These are the options.
After being imprisoned in a tower, a princess and her serving maid at last escape to find a changed world and danger at every turn.
This would work for Utah Authors Month
Since her father’s death four years ago, Donna has gone through the motions of living: her friendships are empty, she’s clueless about what to do after high school graduation, and her grief keeps her isolated, cut off even from the one parent she has left. That is until she’s standing in front of the dead body of a classmate at Brighton Brothers’ Funeral Home. At that moment, Donna realizes what might just give her life purpose is comforting others in death. That maybe who she really wants to be is a mortician.
This discovery sets in motion a life Donna never imagined was possible. She befriends a charismatic new student, Liz, notices a boy, Charlie, and realizes that maybe he's been noticing her, too, and finds herself trying things she hadn’t dreamed of trying before. By taking risks, Donna comes into her own, diving into her mortuary studies with a passion and skill she didn’t know she had in her. And she finally understands that moving forward doesn’t mean forgetting someone you love.
The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan
Ever since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed in the modern world, Carter Kane and his sister Sadie have been in trouble. As descendants of the House of Life, the Kanes have some powers at their command, but the devious gods haven't given them much time to master their skills at Brooklyn House, which has become a training ground for young magicians.
And now their most threatening enemy yet - the chaos snake Apophis - is rising. If they don't prevent him from breaking free in a few days' time, the world will come to an end. In other words, it's a typical week for the Kane family.
To have any chance of battling the Forces of Chaos, the Kanes must revive the sun god Ra. But that would be a feat more powerful than any magician has ever accomplished.
Which would you pick?
