"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


Past. Present. Future. (27)

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!

Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon - I received this book for review, and I'm so excited I did!  It's a really interesting look at a possible Earth future, and the veterinarian part in it, being an exoveterinarian dealing with alien lifeforms, is really cool.  The world that Schoon built is so all-encompassing that I think he could expand books beyond Zenn one day!    I really loved it; while it was slower, I thought the pace set up the coming action nicely!  Check out my review and my author post for the blog tour!
Brain Camp by Susan Kim, Laurence Klavan, & Faith Erin Hicks - I've been on a big graphic novel kick lately, and just randomly been picking ones from the library.  This is an excellent one!  the premise is super creepy and sci-fi while being set at a seemingly normal summer camp.  The points about love and companionship are poignant   I wish there was a sequel, but I didn't find one anywhere!  Really great read for the summer!

The Magicians by Lev Grossman - This has been on my TBR list for a while! I saw so many endorsements and comparisons to Harry Potter that I had to pick up. Now that I'm reading it, I don't really see the connection to Harry Potter except that there are schools of magic in both. But it is still super good! A lot darker and more adult; I can't wait to finish it and move on to the second book!

Requiem by Lauren Oliver - UH I NEED TO READ THIS!  I love this trilogy so much, and I have to find out what happens!  I can't believe I'm waiting this long since I got it the day it came out!  I'm (hopefully) going to see Lauren Oliver in May down in Miami!  I'll just pass out from the awesome in the room if that's the case!

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