I am not reading YA right now. I am reading Club Dead by Charlaine Harris. I will be reading Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading shortly.

Me neither.  I finished Wolf Tower just in time to get three books I need to read and review in the mail, so I started one of those instead.

Wolf Tower was just okay.  Claidi and Nemian do a lot of traveling, but I didn't find most of the places they visited very interesting.  I'm undecided about whether or not I'll bother reading the second book.

I started Enthusiasm by Polly Shulman last night.  It's cute so far.

I really disliked Vampire Kisses.  I don't understand why the books are so popular in these parts.

I finished reading Vampire Kisses. Very quick read! Not that great either. It's very....boring? Poorly written? A bit too young for me. I don't think I'll be continuing this series.

I'm starting Blue Bloods next.

Just finished The Boyfriend List- E. Lockhart, and it was really, really good.  Starting the next book in the series, The Boy Book.

I hope you enjoy Going Too Far, Jacki!  I really liked it!

I just finished Enthusiasm.  It was okay.  The best friend was really annoying and I found myself dreading her scenes, but enjoying the book when she wasn't around.

I just read the Vampire Kisses books and you can count me as another who didn't like them. They reminded me of Baby-Sitter's Club books with the amount of detail spent describing clothing and phsyical features.

I just finished Phrophecy of the Sisters and I didn't like it much.  It was OK, but the historical detail fell flat for me. It could have been richer.

I just started Ballad by Maggie Stiefvater.  It's really good so far.

Now that things are a little calmer with school, I can finally find time to read!

I'm reading The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey right now. It was a free Kindle download (I'm reading it on my iPod touch).

I'm also re-reading A Series of Unfortunate Events. It's really MG and not YA, but I'm in need of some comfort reading.

Gina, I'd have to agree with you about Prophecy of the Sisters, even though Michelle Zink is a fabulous lady and Little, Brown did a ton to promote it. I'm currently reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner (amazing! great for Harry Potter lovers!); Tap & Gown by Diana Peterfreund, which is the fourth and last book in her Ivy League series; and The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp. All are great books.

I am so excited about The Maze Runner.  It looks really good!

I'm about halfway done with Ballad and I am liking it a lot.  There is one aspect I am a little frustrated with, but it is a spoiler for Lament, so I can't share it!

I loved The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp!  One of the best books I read this year, definitely.

I am so excited! I just got an ARC of My Soul to Save by Rachel Vincent from the publisher to review. I have a few books to read for friends, but I SO want to read this one RIGHT NOW. I loved the first book and I can't wait to get into this one!!

Jennifer, I'm actively reading three books, and have a few others I'm in the middle of and need to finish (but put them down longer ago).  I keep track of them the same way I keep track of all the TV shows I watch...it's not hard for me to remember storylines and keep them seperate.
