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.

    @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!

    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.
