The last YA book that I read was Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Yesterday I started Rapture Practice, a memoir by Aaron Hartzler. It's pretty good so far. Here's more info about the book:

Diana- I read that interview the other day; my friend Brent conducted it! Excited to read Rapture Practice but have to go through a few more e-galleys before I get to it.

I started reading The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen earlier this week (the same day I went to her signing in Chapel Hill)- really liking it so far!

Reading has really slowed down since January because of the Job, but I'm on a bit of vacation and I hope I can catch up a bit.

I just read the Monica Seles book, The Academy: Game On, and it was a mess, don't recommend it. Particularly if you are sporty because it just doesn't take sports seriously.


Right now I'm giving Reboot by Amy Tintera. It has a pretty interesting concept. That when teenagers die they get rebooted and transformed into super soldiers, the longer you were dead, the less human you are. So this girl Wren was dead for 178 minutes and is the most efficient, powerful and less human of the bunch, and they she has to start interacting with this guy who was only dead for a few minutes and is, thus, basically still human.

It starts pretty strong, so I'm hopeful.

well im reading blood magic by tessa gratton its from the series blood journals.
Posted Image

Draw a circle... place a dead leaf in the center... sprinkle some salt... recite a little Latin... add a drop of blood...

Maybe that last part isn’t exactly simple. Yet somehow it feels right to Silla Kennicott. And nothing in her life has felt remotely right since her parents’ horrific deaths. She’s willing to do anything to uncover the truth about her family—even try a few spells from the mysterious book that arrived on her doorstep ... and spill some blood.


The book isn’t the only recent arrival in Silla’s life. There’s Nick Pardee, the new guy next door who may have seen Silla casting a spell. She’s not sure what he saw and is afraid to find out. But as they spend more time together, Silla realizes this may not be Nick’s first encounter with Blood Magic. Brought together by a combination of fate and chemistry, Silla and Nick can’t deny their attraction. And they can’t ignore the dark presence lurking nearby—waiting to reclaim the book and all its power.
