Hi everyone. This is my first post here on Teen Tuesday and I'm very excited. My name is Megan and my blog's name is Simply Books. I read a lot of YA literature and am happy that I get to share a bit about my blog with you every Tuesday.

So I'm currently reading Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld and it's pretty good. It's all about a girl who goes to boarding school, and since I don't go to boarding school, it's very interesting. I wonder how it compares with a real boarding school experience?

On my blog I recently reviewed The Luxe by Anna Godbersen (very, very good), Cybele's Secret by Juliet Marillier (it was ok) and Anatomy of a Boyfriend by Daria Snadowsky (also good).

For upcoming reads, I'm finally (finally!) digging into my To Be Read list, which probably has like 50 books. I got City of Bones by Cassandra Clare, which I'm excited to read because I've heard very good things about it and its sequel, City of Ashes. I also borrowed from the library one of my all-time favorite books, Eva Underground by Dandi Daley Mackall. I don't think many of people have ever heard of it but it's so good, and I read it a few years ago and want to read it again. It's about a high school senior who goes to Communist Poland with her father to aid the underground movement. It has romance and action and it's just really good. I also emailed my first author asking for an ARC and she said yes. Isn't that sweet? The book is Death by Latte by Linda Gerber and I'm so excited to read it.

School starts on Thursday and I still have summer reading left, so I better go. See ya next Tuesday.

Wow, there are 3 Megan's now. My name is actually spelled Meaghan, but I think the other Megan spells it the same way you do,

Wow I knew there was another Megan but I didn't realize there were three of us! Well, it is such a great name... : )

I just hope it doesn't get confusing!

I was going to check Prep out from the library, but then I decided against it.

I wanna read Eva Underground. It sounds (and looks) like it'd be a good book.
