I was torn after I finished reading Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder – do I dive right into the other book of hers I recently purchased (The Magician’s Assistant) or get back to reading MG/YA? It was a tough decision, but ultimately I had to get back to reading MG/YA – not only because I thoroughly enjoy it, but also because otherwise I wouldn’t have much to blog about here.
Here’s what I’m most excited to read this month:
I am, in fact, about a quarter of the way into reading this book and am so far enjoying it! Recommended to me (well, not to ME personally) via Lucy’s blog, The Reading Date
I’m really looking forward to this one as many friends with whom I share reading tastes have raved about it. It’s being called a cross between Juno and Under The Tuscan Sun. That grabs me for sure!
I’m not even sure what the book is about exactly, but I loved Jessica Brody’s My Life Undecided. Brody has a great sense of humor in her writing, but her story stays away form “light and fluffy” by really digging into her characters. Plus, what a great title!
Another book I have no real idea what it’s about, but I read the author’s previous two books and especially loved When You Reach Me. When I fall in love with an author’s books, I will read the new release without even knowing anything else about it. I’m that loyal. Plus, I’ve been hearing raves about this one!
This book cover caught my eye while I was browsing in a bookstore. Star-crossed lovers story. I’m in!
And no doubt I’ll keep adding to this list as I get back into reading blogs. The only issue is keeping up with all the reading I want to do while continuing to focus on my own writing. Quite a balancing act! Happy reading! (And yes, please, do share your recommendations with me! I’m truly happy to add books to my reading list!)
