"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!

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 real teenagers.  Her take on the zombie trope wad hilarious (anyone smell chicken?), and with the romance thrown in makes it a very tasty bite of book!
The Liar Society by Lisa & Laura Roecker - I read this for my 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, but I can't believe I didn't pick it up sooner!  The premise was great; Kate's best friend, who tragically died, is sending her messages pointing to clues about what really happened!    And believe me, it is intense!  An amazing start to a really great series!
The Lies that Bind by Lisa & Laura Roecker - Another part of my 2013 TBR Pile Reading Challenge, but also a book I needed to read at the end of the 1st!  This picks up right where The Liar Society ends, but the lies, schemes, and danger are hyped up!  Kate is pulled even further into the secret societies, and it is a crazy ride.  Can't wait for the 3rd book!

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.  This is also one of the books on my 2013 TBR Pile reading Challenge, so it gives me extra motivation to dig in, and so far I'm not disappointed!

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!
