"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!

Croak by Gina Damico - Such a funny and morbid story!  Black humor abound, but in such a delicious way.  The world of Croak is fantastic with the explanation behind Grim Reapers making perfect sense.  Lex is a great protagonist, but her crazy Uncle Mort is probably my favorite person!  Love this series!

Scorch by Gina Damico - Second book in the Croak series.  Picking up where the story left off, I'm finding out even more about the world of Grim Reapers!  Now with a more powerful enemy on the loose, Lex and her friends have to fight even harder.  I'm so loving the series so much, I can't wait for the next installment.

Send by Patti Blount - This book is intense.  Like super intense.  It details the life of a boy who's whole life is changed by the click of the mouse.  The topic is really current and really hard to read about for both the victim and the bully.  Bullying is such an epidemic within society now, I think this book may bring light many repercussions of such acts.  It is really well written, and is starting to be one of my favorite contemporaries.

The Diviners by Libba Bray - This has been on my radar from day one!  Libba Bray is sometimes a hit-or-miss author for me, but I couldn't resist when I read the summary for this one!  I managed to snag a signed copy from Books-A-Million, score!  I can't wait to read this creepy, haunting, awesome book!

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