What I'm Reading Now: Twitter-Style

Summer hasn't been my best reading time this year, it seems, but I have been enjoying a lot of different kinds of books. Here's a peek at my small stack of current reads, Twitter style! If you've read any of these, I'd love to hear what you think.

Toads and Diamonds by Heather Tomlinson: This fairy tale retelling set in India is one of the two books in my bracket for nerds heart ya judging. Slow and a bit overwritten for me.

American Wasteland by Jonathan Bloom: Adult non-fiction to satisfy my obsession with eating healthy and well. I love these sorts of books, but I fear they make me more obsessed.

Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley: This contemporary debut ya came out earlier this spring and slipped my radar. Set in the south, this coming-of-age tale sounds up my alley.

Hooked by Catherine Greenman: I haven't read a story about a pregnant teen in a while. This debut looks good. Preg stories are becoming popular again. Hate the cover.

The Boyfriend List by E. Lockhart: One of my teens recommended I read this one, and since I send her home with piles, I can at least read one of her choices.

Can I See Your ID? True Stories of False Identities by Chris Barton: False identities fascinate me. This teen non-fiction is a new release and one I hope to book talk this fall. Lots of built in appeal.


  1. The Boyfriend List and the other three books in the series are all awesome. You're going to love it.

  2. Totally agree with you on the Hooked cover. Just awful.

  3. Ooh, I hope you love the Boyfriend List. Your teen was right to make you read it!

  4. Blech, I thought it was just because I AM pregnant (albeit 28.5 not at all a teen anymore) that the cover turns me off so...Hooked, you need a new photo, babe...

  5. @Beth and @Pam I am so glad I am not the only one not feeling HOOKED's cover. I mean, it's just too gratuitous.

    @Miss K and @Reading I am pretty excited. Everyone's said I'll love it, so my anticipation is high!

  6. Yeah, the HOOKED cover is pretty bad. I hear THE BOYFRIEND LIST is quite good! It's on my list.

  7. I just read the whole Ruby Oliver series and quite enjoyed them.

  8. I've always really liked the Where Things Comes Back cover. I immediately recognized the woodpecker on the front because if the birdwatching topic EVER comes up in conversation around here, it has something to do with that bird. ;) Glad to see you've rated it high on Goodreads.

    That Hooked cover? Gah. I don't even. Geez.

    I have heard WONDERFUL things about the E. Lockhart series. Will be looking forward to reading your thoughts about it. I really enjoyed her Frankie book.
