What I'm Reading, Twitter Style

With Book Expo America only a few days away, I'm trying to work through a ton of titles before picking up a year's worth of titles at the convention. So, here's what I'm reading, Twitter-style.



Spoken From the Heart by Laura Bush: LB was a librarian before first wife. A bit repetitive and lengthy, but readable and fascinating. Sittenfeld's book was dead on accurate.





Harmonic Feedback by Tara Kelly: Debut title about a girl with autism & her obsession with music. Fluid, fascinating, & very authentic to the teenage voice. My 20th debut!




Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce: Werewolves are my vampires. Interesting premise with a spin off of Little Red Riding Hood. I'm hot-cold on fairy tales, so here's hoping.




A Thousand Sisters by Lisa Shannon: Non-fiction exploration of the most dangerous & most unfriendly places to be a woman. Not a memoir fan, but premise was too good to skip.




Goldengrove by Francine Prose: Listening to in the car - an adult fiction story about adolescence and growing up from an author who generally writes YA fic.




The Iron King by Julie Kagawa: This title has exploded in the blogosphere and has piqued my interest, despite being a non-fantasy reader. Kagawa is a debut author.




Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker: Fascinating premise of small-town life & being an outsider within ones community. A bit of magical realism thrown in for this book club fav.



So what are YOU reading?

  1. I am desperately trying to finish THE RED PYRAMID by Rick Riordan before we leave! It's 500+ pages, so too heavy to take on the plane and I have a feeling that if I don't finish it before BEA, I'll never go back to it!!

    I'm seeing Julie Kagawa at a signing tomorrow and I think I'll pick up that book while I'm there - I've heard great things about it!
