"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!

Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier - I lovedlovedloved Ruby Red, the first book of this wonderful trilogy, and I lovedlovedloved this book just as much! I'm so happy that this was translated from it's original German so I could enjoy it; it is such a great take on time-travel, as well as having interesting theories using jewels and powers and just ah! Too awesome to explain! I think everyone should read this because it is just too good.

Zombie Queen of Newbury High by Amanda Ashby - What a fun and funny book.  Ashby has a way with humor that is very realistic.  I always feel as if her characters are living teenagers.  Her take on the zombie trope is hilarious (anyone smell chicken?), and there is a little bit of romance thrown in as well.  A very tasty bite of book!
The Liar Society by Lisa & Laura Roecker - I'm reading this for my 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, but I can't believe I didn't pick it up sooner!  The premise is great; Kate's best friend, who recently passed, is sending her messages pointing to clues about what really happened!  And I love that it's part of a series, with two more books to dive into.  really loving it so far!


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!  This is also one of the books on my 2013 TBR Pile reading Challenge, so it gives me extra motivation to dig in!
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!
