Has anyone read Kindred Author: Tammar Stein ISBN-13: 9780375858710? I bought Spoils thinking it was a standalone book, but it says it is a companion book to Kindred...not sure if I could get away with reading Spoils alone or not...I am currently reading Allegiant by Veronica Roth...it is interesting but I feel like it is ruining the series. I will keep reading it though to see what happens.

Just finished Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park, a quirky, fun little romance.  Good story, too.

Just finished The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, I loved it. It was so emotional though, I'm going to have to bring a box of tissues to the theater when I see it! I'm picking up where I left off in Splintered by A.G. Howard.

I finished The One by Kiera Cass (Book 3 of the Selection Trilogy) Very good. I really enjoyed all 3 books. Highly recommend this series.

I second what Alice says^ I just finished The One on audio book and I am so sad to be done with this series... i had really grown attached to all of the characters and looked forward to listening to the book at night...I highly recommend the books as wellyes

To fill my audio book void I started listening to Fire with Fire by Jenny Han and Siobhan Vivian which is the sequel to Burn for Burn.. I am enjoying so far.

I was also feeling a void for some good chick lit so I started reading Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin to kick off some easy summer reading.

I am currently reading Signed, Skye Harper. It's very cute and my first 1970's type YA book that I've read. I tried reading Eleanor and Park but I just couldn't get into it.

Just finished Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry anf LOVED it. I was reading it off and on all day as i was busy and then decided to read it in the bath before bed. I stayed in the tub 2 hours and finished the book. I thought it was a very gripping plot and the character development was amazing.

I am pleasantly surprised with The Testing (Testing, Bk 1) :: Joelle Charbonneau

Well written and you get into the plot and can't stop turning the pages. Highly recommend.

Some of these are listed under Children's, but I think they should be YA, also.  I read them, so I don't really consider them as children's books.

The White Giraffe: Lauren St. John

Dolphin Song: Lauren St. John

Frightful's Mountain (My Side of the Mountain, Bk 3): Jean Craighead George

Earthquake Terror: Peg Kehret
