"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!

Pretty Crooked by Elisa Ludwig - This was such an amazing mix of Gossip Girl and Robin Hood; back-stabbing and robberies galore!  Willa is my kind of girl, the thief with a heart of gold!  Of course there was much more going on then meets the eye, and I can't wait to find out what in Pretty Sly, the second book in the series!  Fun, glitzy and dangerous, this was so good!
The Accidental Genius of Weasel High by Rick Detorie - This is a graphic 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 added additional details to the events being chronicled, and I loved the layer of humor as well. This was a very cute story, with a simple "growing up" tale; good for the younger crowd.

Natural Born Angel by Scott Speer - I am so excited to dive into this book (due out April 23)! 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). So far it is as action packed and fast paced as the first book, and I'm loving it!

The Ultra Violets by Sophie Bell - This looks to be a super cute middle grade!  It reminds me of the Powerpuff Girls cartoon, which I loved.  I'm excited to read this ARC (the book is due out April 9th) because the story sounds really empowering and fun!  Books like this are so great for young girls to read, and the illustrations are awesomely anime in style!

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