Can you believe it is already July?

I just finished This Lullaby.  I liked it but didn't love it.  I made a list of the books I've had on my TBR the longest.  I'm determined to get the list read this year.  This Lullaby was on it.  Now I am starting Dairy Queen, another book from the list.

I need to do that same thing, Jenna... 

I am really enjoying Truth...  the story from XVI just picked right up where it left off and is continuing to be a good one!!!

I fnished Kelley Armstrong's The Calling. Can wait to see how she merges all three of her book series together in one plot line.

Finished NEVER FALL DOWN by Patrician McCormick for the YA Reading Challenge...wow...what a powerful novel!  I now started Between Shades of Gray and didn't want to put it down for dinner.  I'm really sucked into it!!  (Also using for the reading challenge...)  And i started listening to Red Badge of Courage for the challenge.  I'm DETERMINED to get the challenge done in the next 2 weeks...3 books total to go.

I just started Crossed by Ally Condie.  I'm having a hard time rembering Matched, though - hate that!

I am really enjoying Roadside Assistance...  of course I like Christian YA a lot, so I'm not surprised.... 

Oh, does anyone know if there is another book in the XVI series coming after Truth?

I read The Golden Lily earlier this month by Richelle Mead.  I'm just not digging on this as much as I did Vampire Academy.  I love Sydney's character, but the plotlines so far have been really dull to me.

I just started The Golden Lily, Jennifer.  I agree with you though - I like this series, but not nearly as much as I liked Vampire Academy.

I finished My Life Next Door last night.  It was good, though I felt the resolution happened too quickly.

i'm actually listening to Dracula to finish up the YA reading challenge.  I never had to read the book.  The audio I"m listening to has an all star cast and i'm loving it!  Not sure I'd have made it through reading it, but the audio is fascinating...

I read CC Hunter's Born at Midnight. I really liked it. I don't understand some of the bad reveiws it received.

I am about a third of the way through Diva...  I am just sad that this is the end of the series...  I think she could keep going for sure!!!  Or do a spin-off series or something....  I just LOVE the Jazz Age!

I am reading Cinder by Marissa Meyer. It is quite good. I didn't think I would like it but it is quite good.
