"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green

There are a a lot of these "What're you reading?" features around, so I figured, hey why not start one too? Basically, here's where I highlight the books I've read, the books I'm reading, and the books I'm going to read. Fun, right? Please join in if you want!

This is Not a Test by Courtney Summers - I am really into zombie books.  I love all kinds, but this one sets itself apart.  I think what drew me to it was the premise that Sloane, the main character, doesn't care that a zombie apocalypse is happening because her life essentially ended months before.  I think this is a fresh take on this trope, and I'm loving it so far!

Drain You by M. Beth Blooms - This one is taking me a little while to get into.  It's a vampire story, but it doesn't seem typical.  I like that it's set in the early 90s (at least that's what I'm guessing), and the main character has a 'tude that I like, but it's not very exciting yet.  The story hasn't grabbed me, but I'm giving it some time.
Dust & Decay by Jonathan Maberry - I absolutely loved Rot & Ruin, so I know I'm going to love Dust & Decay!  It picks up where the last book breaks off, and I want to know what that airplane means!  New zombies are suppose to show up as well, faster, stronger, and smarter ones, so I know I'll be gasping my way through the action!


Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig - Robin Hood mixed with Gossip Girl?  Count me in!  I want something that's really fun, and this sounds like just the ticket!  I love the story of Robin Hood, and to find it in a modern setting with a female at the helm makes me so happy.  I also have a serious addiction to Gossip Girl, so I'm all for something similar!
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman - I've heard so many amazing things about this book!  I've been in the mood for a real fantasy lately, and I think this will serve nicely.  I'm intrigued by the main character's predicament  and being torn between two sides.  I can't wait to read what happens!

If any of you've read any of these books, let me know what you thought (but NO spoilers) down below in the comments!

  1. Almost all of these are on my TBR. I'm glad to hear you liked Rot & Ruin. I really need to read more zombie books - I've seen almost every zombie movie I can think of (even Zombie Honeymoon, which I don't recommend.)

    I hope Seraphina is great. It looks amazing, and I haven't heard any bad things about it.
