"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!

Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge - This was a an amazing graphic novel!  It reminded a lot of Blankets by Craig Thompson.  the art was gorgeous, and really expressive.  the way it told the story without the need for much text was mind-blowing!  As a writer, I'm always jealous of artists, in the way they can make a statement with a drawing.  Really great coming-of-age story, and I think a needed addition to any graphic novel collection!

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!
The Accidental Genius of Weasel High by Rick Detorie - This is a graphic novel/actual novel, very much in the style of Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney, with inserts of drawings interspersed through the text.  The images add additional details to the events being chronicled, and I love the layer of humor as well.  This is a very cute story.  It is a simple coming-of-age, figuring out my place, growing up tale; good for the younger crowd.

Natural Born Angel by Scott Speer - I am so excited to dive into this book! Scott Speer's first novel, Immortal City, was action packed, and left the reader on such a cliff-hanger! This world is definitely an interesting place, filled with Angels as celebrities, the A! network (instead of E!; cute right?), and different Angel "Teams" (ala Jacob & Edward).  I was so lucky to get an ARC of this, and I need to know what happens ASAP!

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