Recent Reads

A few of the books I've read in the past month:

1. Matched by Ally Condie – This was a definite win. The story pulled me in and didn't let go. I really enjoyed the romance of it. The one downside? Now I'm in the middle of yet another series I can't wait to read more of.

2. Across the Universe by Beth Revis – This book had a lot of well-deserved buzz. I don't always see many popular YA sci fi novels, so I was really glad to read this one. Excellent concept and great execution. The themes were intriguing and kept me turning pages, and the characters' situations, though so unfamiliar, were easy to dive into.

3. Being Nikki & Runaway by Meg Cabot – The second and third of the Airhead books, probably my favorite Meg Cabot series. There's something irresistible about the “What if I suddenly became a supermodel?” idea.

4. Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder – Last year I recommended Poison Study, the first book in this series. Now I've finally read the second, and I'm still totally in love with the characters. If you like fantasy, this one doesn't disappoint.

And what have you been reading?


  1. Audrey, you just check out Delirium by Lauren Oliver and Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly, both I think you'd like.

  2. Delirium is for sure on my to-read list. I'll have to check out Revolution--hadn't heard of it yet. Thanks!

  3. Ahh, too many books to add to list-to-read. I don't think I'll ever finish all your suggestions...but I still appreciate them. Now I just have to figure out if any of the libraries around here have them...

  4. Yeah... isn't possible to read everything. What kinds of books do you like best? I could probably give you a few recommendations in particular.
