 I read it Jacki... I agree with you. I felt so weird that I was rooting for them to get away with it for a while.

I have Forbidden coming but don't know when I'll read it. It seems so wrong but very different so I wanted to give it a try.

  I am finally reading "The Body Finder" and I love it so far. I have put it off because I was afraid that it would make me scared, lol.  Well it hasn't so far and I'm half way. Now in search

of  "Desires of the Dead"

 

Oh, have you all read "A Match Made In High School" I am a total evangelist for that book. Funniest book I have ever read in my life. You all need to read it. It was so good.

just finished THE BEGINNING OF AFTER by Jennifer Castle.  It was OK, nothing great, but decent.  Gonna start a galley of SAVING JUNE next, after I finish THE KISSING GAME for the reading challenge.

I'm reading Simone Elkeles too, Jacki.  Last night I finished Leaving Paradise and started Return to Paradise.  I can't wait for Chain Reaction, either.  Love her writing.

I just finished Wherever You Go by Heather Davis.  It was only okay.  I really didn't like that the story was told in first person, second person, and third person points of view.  Now starting Fury by Elizabeth Miles.

Well, I finished Chain Reaction this morning...  I wanted to love it...  I liked Luis, but it sure seemed rushed.... especially the last third of the book....  it should have been longer and gotten a little deeper into the gang related part of the story...  it all just wrapped up to easily for me...  anyway, I was disappointed compared to the first two in the series....  it was still a good read, but I adored the first two and this was just ok....

Can you believe I am just now reading "Harry Potter", I am almost ashamed to say, lol. Wait, does "Harry Potter" qualify as YA?

I am just a couple chapters into The Implosion of Aggie Winchester, but it is starting out with some decent potential!

that's on my WL Jacki..

Yes Harry Potter is YA...  definitely the later books are more older than just middle grade I would think!

I just finished I AM NUMBER FOUR (for the YA reading challeng...book made into a movie) and i have to say this is one of those books I think the movie was better.  THOUGH there was a lot they changed....
