I tried reading some chick lit and just could not get into it.  Two different books, I got to around 125 pages into it and just thought "I really don't care what happens next."  So I'm back to YA, reading Need by Carrie Jones from the library.  It's on my wishlist but I'm way at the end of it.

I finished The Forest of Hands and Teeth and loved it. Starting All Unquiet Things by Anna Jarzab. This is a new author for me so I hope it is good.

Debbie, you must like Zombies too! I LOVED The Forest of Hands and Teeth. I can't wait to get The Body Finder. I just got Before I Fall from the library, so many choices!

I am halfway through The Secret Year...  it's decent so far...  I'm just hoping there's going to be more to the story than just a bunch of reminiscing....

I'm about halfway done with Starlight by Claudia Grey.  It's not going as well as I wanted.  This book isn't holding my interest very much.

The Body Finder was sooooo good. One of the best I've read this year so far. Hex Hall has started off really good too. I absolutely love her writing. It's sarcastic and witty and everything I love. :)

I'm trying to decide to quit How to Say Good-Bye in Robot or not? I've read so many good things about it. I'm more than halfway through it. I will skim it and be done!

I just keep starting other books in the meantime.

I have an ARC of The Body Finder, I guess I need to put it on the top of my tbr pile. Sometimes I hate to read ARC's because I am afraid I will be short on books to use in the swaps, so that is how I have been picking my books.

I finished  How to Say Good-Bye in Robot and I cried. I'm glad I kept with it. I'm still getting teary about it. It was a good, good book.

Debbie, I am the same way...  I never read the ARC's I have because I feel like I need to stock up on books I can use in swaps... LOL

I am reading Kitty Kitty by Michele Jaffe.  It is kind of ironic because the book is set in Venice, Italy and I was just there a few weeks ago. :)

I've decided to put Stargazer aside for a few days and have started Hush, Hush.  I'm only a few pages in, but so far it sounds really good!

Im getting ready to start the Blue Bloods series. Gotta say, they have been sitting on my shelf for a very long time! Ive heard alot of things about them and have been back and forth about them for awhile so I think Im just gonna read em and finally judge for myself. At least that way if I dont like em I can post them and make more room on my shelves! lol

OK so I just finished The Secret Year...  there were elements of the story I really liked, but the ending just didn't feel like legitimate closure for Colt, to me....  and it just left too many loose ends......

Now on to something else..... :)

I just finished Coffeehouse Angel.  It was pretty cute, though it did wrap up a little too nicely at the end.  But it was a fun read anyway!

Not sure what I'll read next.

The Secret Year was a disappointment to me. I really didn't like the ending either, Jacki. I'm kind of a happy ending or resolve it kind of girl!

I like my endings the same way Tracie....  happy or at least all resolved....  I mean, I can deal with loose ends when there is a sequel, but this was obviously a stand alone book...

I just finished City of Ashes.  Now I'm dying to know how it ends (although I see there is a 4th book coming out next year).  Now I'm reading Cracked up to Be.  OMG, I had tears while reading it last night.  Parker is so sad to me, I just want to jump thru the pages and hug her (or shake her lol).  I always cry at these type of books;(.  I also cried while reading Bloom and Lock and Key lol.:/

I'm reading the Secret Society by Tom Dolby....I really want to get into it, but I'm about a third of the way through and if you've seen the movie The Skulls, so far you've pretty much read this book
