I'm not sure which booked triggered it, but for the past few months, I have been voraciously reading. Luckily, I work at a bookstore so I get a pretty sweet discount, always know what is coming out, and even get to borrow some books so I'm not totally breaking my bank account.

In an effort to surf the web while at work, I signed up awhile back to do book reviews for Barnes and Noble and have since have even been in the weekly email a few times*. They're not good reviews...just a few words about each one I've read and with a rating, but it's fun to finish a book and post a quick review on there.

I was thinking, though, that I should share what I've read here, too. Be warned, I get really into the teen books. They're fast, entertaining, and just oh so much fun.

I'm reading Shiver right now. I just started, but it is really good!

Awesome list. I love the Uglies series per your suggestion, so I might have to pick a couple more from here to try :-)

Miss Scarlet said...

KB- I loved it so much I had it shipped to my sister and she is loving it, too!

Serena- Yay! What are you considering?

I used to read so much before law school. And, then, with all the school reading, I got out of the personal reading habit (my eyes hurt too much after school). But, now that I'm finished with school and unemployed, I really should jump back in.

Serena said...

I think the Hunger Games books. You loved, yes?

Miss Scarlet said...

Sparklebot- I know what you mean, it took awhile after college to get back into reading and the same thing happened after grad school.

Serena- YES!

Scott Westerfield is the awesome. The Uglies series kicked major butt!! I just read his new one, Leviathan. It was fun, but not nearly as fun as Tally...
