Yesterday I finished John Green's "Looking For Alaska," which was incredible.

Next I'm either going to start "The Life of Pi" or reread "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."

I'm about to start To Sir Phillip, with Love by Julia Quinn. It's the fifth book in her Bridgerton series, which I'm really enjoying.

The last YA book that I read was an ARC of Gayle Forman's Just One Day. Loved it, loved it, loved it! I can't wait to read Just One Year when it comes out this fall.

I just finished Heist Society, which I read just because it was laying around at my cousins' house. It was actually really good! If you read it, you might just be able to figure out what the first letter in my username stands for...

I haven't actually been reading much YA lately!
But right now I'm reading this really adorable book called In the Bag by Kate Klise
about this mom and her daughter and this dad and his son, the four of them are on a flight to Paris and the dad, Andrew, spills wine on the mom (and finds her attractive) so he slips a note into her purse saying he'll pay for the dry cleaning, and asking her out leaving his email. Daisy, the mom, isn't very amused
Then when they get to Paris, both Daisy and Andrew are hurring their kids, Coco and Webb respectively, and they grab each other's bags by mistake

And the kids start emailing each other, first to figure out what to do with their bags, and then because they like each other. But Coco and Daisy are in PAris and Webb and Andrew in Madrid. =)

I'm about a third of the way in and is very adorable so far

I finished The Archived by Victoria Schwab and really really liked it. I wasn't enthralled by The Near Witch, but this book sounded so good that I wanted to give her another shot. I'm glad I did.

But right now, I'm in the middle of reading Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl (in preparation for the movie) and Prodigy by Marie Lu. I also started A Million Suns by Beth Revis last night.

Currently working on "Life of Pi." Really interesting. Not necessarily what I was expecting, but still really good. The writing's all right--not my favorite style--but the plot is interesting enough and the character isn't awful. I'm only about 100 pages in, though. Hopefully it stays good.

I just read this super cute book called Confectionately Yours #1: Save the Cupcake! and it was absolutely adorable!!
I even went and order books 2 and 3 of the series.

It's about a girl who loves baking cupcakes and she, her mom and sister just moved in with her Grandma, who owns a tea shop.
And she's kinda struggling 'cause her parents just got divorced, and her dad is dating again, and her best friend is undergoing a personality change and her other best friend is acting a little weird and she seems to always be messing up with him.

And then she makes friends with this other girl in her class whom she always liked but never really got to hang out with before, and well, it's darn cute.

I've read Beautiful Creatures, and quite enjoyed it. Then I realised there were another three or four books in the series! And this is the first I've heard it's becoming a movie. Do you know who the actors will be?

My mum suggested I read 'Rot and Ruin' by Jonathan Maberry, because she and a friend rated it highly. It's a young adult novel about zombies, but honestly... I have read so many better zombie books! My favourite books ever happen to be 'The Enemy' by Charlie Higson, which are about zombies.

So, I have put down 'Rot and Ruin' for a while, and now I'm reading 'How to Survive the Titanic or, The Sinking of J. Bruce Ismay'. I really love anything about the Titanic, so I'm looking forward to getting further into it, though it is quite long.

I can't wait to see the Beautiful Creatures movie; I'm still only halfway through the book though, but with being broke, I may have to wait until it's in the dollar theatre. As for the book series, there's a total of 4 books, which are all out now.

I just finished reading The Madman's Daughter by Megan Shepherd, which was pretty good. I'm reading Also Known As by Robin Benway (LOVING it so far) and Skylark by Meagan Spooner. I got to meet Megan and Meagan at a book signing last night (along with Jodi Meadows and Lenore Appelhans) and it was so much fun.

Ugh! I just finished Fear, the fifth book in the Gone series by Michael Grant. It's one of those times when I have to wait for the final book, Light, to come out... in three months. The series is so great, and the waiting is driving me crazy!

Don't read What We Saw at Night- the ending really left a sour taste in my mouth. I thought it was a stand-alone (it's a MYSTERY, for crying out loud!) but the story is being dragged out so it can be a trilogy. It really made me angry.

I'm currently reading Dance of Shadows by Yelena Black, The Curiosities by Maggie Stiefvater, Brenna Yovanoff and Tessa Gratton; and Skylark by Meagan Spooner.

I got Eleanor and Park! I couldn't resist!! After Attachements I just had to!
I hope I can get to it soon, and I already go FanGirl in my wishlist
