Read Eggs by Jerry Spinelli, a story about two young people who have lost so much but find discover love through their friendship, each other and Refrigerator John.  Now I've finished I Funny by James Patterson which is stretching the genre a bit but I did want to check it out.  It's very good - 4 stars for me and maybe 5 stars for the younger set.  Also read How It Was for Billy Nelson by Jean .Ameluxen and The Root Cellar (Puffin Books) by Jean Lunn, a wonderful little story about a twelve-year-old who lost, first her parents, then her grandmother and is sent to an aunt's home quite unlike any situation she has known.  How she finds her way and becomes comfortable is a great little story complete with time travel.

finished Six Rules of Maybe by Deb Caletti.  It was OK.  I kept expecting something more to happen though.

I am reading Love Reborn (Dead Beautiful Novel, A) :: Yvonne Woon. This is book 3 of the series. I don't care for Zombies very much but I really like this series.

finished the NA novel The Edge of Always by JA Redmerski...it was ok.  Just wanted to complete the series.  Was an audiobook with male and female narrators which I always enjoy.

starting tomorrow:  The Book of Broken Hearts by Sarah Ockler.  Never read anything by her so have no clue of her writing style.  I have to travel out near Altoon (2 1/2 hours each way) on Friday for work, so I should have most of it finished by the weekend... --> so you don't think i'm driving and reading, it IS an audiobook!  LOL!

I have been in a slump this month...  I know I have started a book that will be wonderful, but I just have no desire to pick it up and read... so not like me!!!

so today on my way home from work, I will finish up Enders.  It was ok, but i have to say, I have like comparable to 40 pages to go (1 CD) and there is a lot that she's going to have to wrap up in that 40 pages.  which makes me hesitant...  I liked Starters a lot more...jmho...

 

And then I only have 100 pages left in Divergent to finish tonight.  Enjoyed it far more than I thought I would.  Not sure if I'll jump right into Insergent or go with something else...so many choices!

I started This Wicked Game :: Michelle Zink

I enjoy voodoo books set in New Orleans. Good read, good plat. Not the brightest main character.

Val I have Enders to read next.

Enders was OK Alice, don't get me wrong.  But I hate when they rush an ending...  There was so much more she could've done with it.

 

I have decided I will finally make myself finish SHUTDOWN.  I have been reading it FOREVER on my Kindle!  I'm 72% of the way through it, so no reason why I CAN'T just finish it for heaven's sake!

Read Divergent and Insurgent, both of which I really enjoyed, but am so hesitant to get to Allegiant. Several friends have read it and despised it! Haha I don't know why I'm letting their opinions get to me. I think I just liked the first two so much that I don't want to be disappointed :)
