Has anyone read Angelogy by Danielle Trussoni?  My daughter just go it and says it is very boring, she is wondering if she should give up on it.

Angels are my favorite paranormal to read.

Just finished The Unidentified....  what a great concept for a book....  how easily a school situation like that could become reality is scary, but with the shape public education is in, money's going to have to come from somewhere...........

I'm in the middle of Going Bovine by Libba Bray.  Has anyone else read this?  I'm getting a little frustrated with where it's going, but the writing is stellar.  I feel like I should start Angel soon too.

I'm reading "I Am Number Four" right now, so that I can (hopefully) go and see the movie this weekend.

Kayla, I liked Going Bovine.  It's definitely weird, but I thought it was intriguing and the writing is great.

Yeah, I have a feeling I know where it's going, but I feel like it's too much quirky and random and not enough story.  It kind of reminds me of Bubble Boy except that was a two hour movie and I've been reading this one for a few weeks now.  I really love her character's voice though.  If I didn't know any better, I'd say she is a teenage boy.

I really enjoyed Matched and am looking forward to the sequel.

What I am reading is in my siggy. I just know it starts with Bump in the Road...It's quite hilarious. I am only reading it because I was told that her writing is similar to Jen Lancaster. While she's funny, she's no Jen....

I'm glad you liked Matched.  I've picked it up a few times but it feels like a Twilight/Uglies/Hunger Games mash up.  It really does stand on its own?

Megan, I'd heard that about Scorch Trials and have put off reading it for that reason!  I hate being all excited about the cliffhanger and then having to wait a year for the next book. 

I'm reading Matched, but I don't love it.  I like the world, but the action is kind of slow.

 I really liked Matched, alot more than I am liking The Iron Witch.  This one just isn't doing it for me.
