In The Past
I finished 10 books these past three weeks.
Me and Earl and The Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews - Mock Printz
Starters by Lissa Price - interesting. Old people rent young people's bodies in order to be young again. And the young people get to eat and possibly find shelter.
Boy21 by Matthew Quick - Mock Printz
How to Survive the Apocalypse by Lucas Krauss - recommended by Amazing Dancer - Boy meets girl. Girl is highly religious. Boy decides he can be religious too!
The Letter Q: Queer Writers' Note to Their Younger Selves edited by Sarah Moon - Great book put out by Scholastic. I gave away two copies!
Article 5 by Kristen Simmons - recommended by Amazing Dancer - girl gets arrested because mom had her out of wedlock. 17 years ago. She needs to find mom and break her out of jail. Ex-Boyfriend turned soldier decides to help. Can she trust him?
Chomp by Carl Hiassen - different from other Hiaasen MG fare. This one is much more YA with lots of action and near-death experiences compounded by a drunken father and a crazed reality tv star.
Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross - fun read. Not the best written but filled with entertainment, action and romance.
Hush by Elise Chayil - recommended by Amazing Dancer - A Chassidic community turning their back on a nine-year old leads to a coverup that one member still can't get past. So sad!
Girl in the Clockwork Collar by Kady Cross - more fun!
In the Present
Dragon Castle by Joseph Bruchac - Batty About Books next book. Check out Part 1.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling - hoping to read the whole series and watch each movie this summer.
In The Future
This Friday, June 8, 2012 starts the 48 Hour Book Challenge and Summer #Bookaday! I'm so excited that once again these start at the same time for me! Last year I met my goal of 15 hours. This year I hope to do 20 hours! I'll post about both on Friday but in case you can't wait - here's my post from last year - NO Summer Slide and 48HBC.
