I got quite a bit of reading done over the fourth of July Weekend and while on vacation in Maine, so I'm feeling very productive.
Read:

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick (My review)
Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen
The Shadow Hunt by Katherine Langrish
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
Currently reading:
Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater (I bumped this one up because Maggie and Kristi are hosting a Twitter party on the 22nd to celebrate the release of Linger. Click here for more information!)
The Book of Awesome: Snow Days, Bakery Air, Finding Money in Your Pocket and Other Simple, Brilliant Things by Neil Pasricha (I've been reading a few pages of this every night before bed. It is most definitely a feel good read!)
I plan to read:
The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
Ice by Sarah Beth Durst
Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles (This is waiting for me at my public library, so I need to pick it up Tuesday when I go in to volunteer.)
The Dark Divine by Bree Despain (I requested this from my library as well and am first on the hold list, so it'll probably be there soon.)
Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson
Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (If I had a dollar for everyone person who's said, "Why haven't you read this yet!" I would be rolling in dough.)
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly (I'm on an ARC tour for this book and I will probably get it late this week or early next week.)

  1. Great vlog! I love love love Willow! I bought it after I'd checked it out from the library, which doesn't happen! I personally like The Luxe series, and the Peter and the Starcatchers series is one of my favorites! Happy reading!
