I'm trying to finish THE FAME GAME on audio (veeeery dull IMHO) and about 1/4 of the way through Beautiful Redemption

I just finished The Dead Tossed Waves and liked it way more than the first one! It took me forever to get through it though with a sick baby :( Next up is The Perks of Being a Wallflower for a swap.

I enjoyed PERKS...read it YEARS ago.  Went to uni in Pittsburgh so I could relate to a lot of the sites referenced...especially the tunnel scene through the Liberty Tubes (as real Pittsburghers call 'em! -- click on the tunnel picks and it drives you through them!)...that was the tunnel you had to take to get to the cool mall:  Century III.  Looking forward to the movie.

Sweet Val! I have family in PA so I remember going through the tunnels when I was younger! I loved the old historical pics too! I'm also extremely jealous of your mall! Ours has dwindled over the years and there's only a few stores in there now. Depressing!!

I haven't gotten my hands on Endlessly yet and you have to rub it in your reading an early release of Mind Games already!  LOL!

I am starting

 
Very mixed reviews on goodreads and here on PBS. I was not wild about Divergent so I will see how Insurgent goes.

I have been so insanely busy that I have read very little in the past several weeks...  I am really loving Finale and hate that I am having to read it in broken bits and pieces here and there when I have a few minutes in a waiting room or something....

Finished Beautiful Redemption...not as dark as the rest of the series, but a nice conclusion...

Starting Evolution of Mara Dyer next...

Finished Perks and am 1/2 way through Bleeding Violet- it's been on my shelf forever and I'm glad I finally picked it up! Getting back into swap games has really been helping my TBR pile!

Finished INFAMOUS (Chronicles of Nick #3) last night.  Can I just say Holter Graham is like THE BEST narrator?  You know they are doing a great job if you find yourself LOL while you're listening to a story!

Well, I thoroughly enjoyed Finale...  Sad to see the series end...  will be interested to see what Becca Fitzpatrick does next....  Now I am takinga brief hiatus from YA to read The Time Keeper....  Mitch Albom is my favorite author!

"The Dead Tossed Waves" was a giant whine and a big bore to me.  "Divergent" was just interesting enough that I finished it.

Finished "Reaper" and "Never to Sleep" by Rachel Vincent this morning.

Right now I'm reading Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs and I'm really enjoying it.  I'm almost done with it which is kind of sad but I get to start a new book soon!!!

Shondra, "PAPER TOWNS" was my favorite by him up until FAULT IN OUR STARS....  He's good no matter what.  So is Dessen....  ALONG FOR THE RIDE was my favorite by her....

Should FINALLY have RAISED BY WOLVES finished on audio on my drive home from work today.  I *think* I know how this is going to turn out...be curious to see if I'm right when I pop in the final CD when I leave!    After that I'm starting Winter White (or whatever Belles 2 is called...)
