Reading now?

Hello all, hope everyone having a good day, I was just wondering what was everyone reading at moment?

 

I am reading Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series at the moment.

 

I'd Tell You I Love You, but Then I'd Have to Kill You (Gallagher Girls Series #1) 

 

Help me down the crooked road. Lead me to the light. I'm not sure I know the way but with you beside me, I'm certain we'll make it through.

Re: Reading now?

I just finished reading Amanda Hocking's book Switched and am getting ready to start the 2nd in the series Torn. Seem to be drawn to a lot of young adult stuff recently - the stories are usually very good, but seem to be less intensive reads for me. Maybe as a high school teacher I am spending too much time around teenagers. :smileytongue:

 

 

Torn (Trylle Trilogy, #2)

There's nothing wrong with that I like them too.  Though I am not a teacher I am a college student but, bottom line is if its a good story its worth reading and I agree less instensive to me, I hate books that I feel I have to have a dictionary next to me to understand the author.

I spent a whole summer a couple of years ago just reading kids & young adult novels. One of the most satisfying reading experiences ever.

Re: Reading now?

I was once embarrassed by reading the 'young adult' books.  But no more, I'm proud of the fact that at 51+ years of age I read and loved all of the Twilight Series, the Hunger Game series, and Harry Potter.  I too have Switched and Torn, and I just think I will read them next after I finish the last of Mockingjay.

 

And I just might focus on this age books for awhile - helps my brain relax some at night after a challenging day as an accountant.

[ Edited ]

Dragonfly Falling (Shadows of the Apt Series #2)  

 

I'd even have bought it from Barnes and Noble on my Nook, if they would ever get around to putting the same books from Pyr Publishing up that are available on the Kindle.


Sadly, they missed a sales opportunity there. Oh well. When it's available for the Nook, I'll buy it from them.

Wasn't a freebie, but got it "on sale." Pretty good "cozy" mystery. Don't read while hungry...contains donut and desert recipes at the end of each chapter! :smileytongue:

Thanks! I will check it out. Would be great for my history classes as well, since most 10th graders do not have the werewithal to sit through Lawrence of Arabia.
