"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!

Mothership by Martin Lecht & Isla Neal - Uh, this book was FREAKING HILARIOUS!  I usually stay away from pregnancy stories, but the summary hooked me!  And I'm so glad that I decided to read this book.  Lecht & Neal have created a snarky, funny, capable protagonist in Elvie, with some very fun supporting characters (I love Ramona and Ducky)!  This is a fun mix of contemporary and sci-fi that everyone should pick up; great debut of 2012!
Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan - As with all of David's books, this one hit my heart hard.  The way he crafts the story is heartbreakingly beautiful, and he manages to show different sides of the experience of 9/11 without trivializing it.  I think the fact that he himself was just down the street from what happened really helped shape a true and honest response.  This was one of the most horrific things to happen to this country within the modern times, and David Levithan allows the reader to experience the hurt, the anger, the disbelief, the love, and the hope that came out of it.

L.A. Candy by Lauren Conrad - This is one of my guilty pleasure reads.  I actually really admire that Lauren Conrad has made such a successful career for herself, and think this will be a fun, light book just in time for the end of summer.  Some of my friends have really liked it, so I'm sure I wil too.

Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo - Ooooh this book is on top of my 2012 debut list!  Sounds like an awesome mystery/supernatural story, it takes place in a kingdom similar to Russia!  I love Russia, so yay!  I want to know how this Shadow Fold came to be, how Alina uses her power, and who the heck is the Darkling (or maybe what...?)!  I'm really excited to dive in! I PROMISE I WILL EVENTUALLY READ THIS (I should probably not promise this anymore......LOL)!

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