Teen Tuesday...well, Thursday!

I know, I's not Tuesday! But things got crazy here at school this week and I couldn't get to my computer - so Thursday it is!

I just finished Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen. Not typically my type of genre, I really liked it. I loved the dynamic between Auden and her mother - and then later with Auden and her father. The picture of step-mom Heidi that I had created in my head was quickly blown to smithereens once we actually first meet her...overwhelmed and stressed as she's become a mom and deals with a newborn. There's some great interaction between Auden and the beach girls - Esther, Leah, and Maggie - especially after Auden's embarrassing first-night hook up. And what can I say about Eli? Loved him. A great, easy, quick read.

I'm 10 pages away from finishing Gone by Michael Grant...AND I LOVE IT!!!!! It's like The Stand combined with Girl Who Owned a City with Lord of the Flies with lots of awesomeness and super powers!! What more could you want. Next in my "to read" pile is the sequel, Hunger!

That's it! Don't forget to check out my blog for my contest...we're giving away an autographed copy of Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen!

Teen Tuesday (4)

This week has been kind of busy. I had been gone for the last two weeks and brought lots of books with me and came home to some that I got in the mail. To find out what those books are you can check out my In My Mailbox post for this week.

I finally finished Envy by Anna Godbersen. I was hoping to have it sooner but I had the flu and was so sick that all I did was sleep. I had a constant fever and couldn't eat anything, and it was bad! But I'm all better now, so I'm back to reading. And anyways I linked the review for that about. I also read a book that I didn't plan on reading but I was glad that I did. It was actually one of my sisters school books. It was called Behind Rebel Lines by Seymour Reit. It was a non-fiction book about a woman who disguised herself in the Civil War. I didnt review this one but I did enjoy reading it, though it was short. The woman who it was about actually wrote her own book but it was made more than 120 years ago and you cannot find it. I linked the book on amazon in case anyone was interested.

Right now I am currently reading Candor by Pam Bachorz for my 1 ARC Tours. I am only on the third chapter but it is ok for only being that far. I hope that it gets good, which from the reviews that I have seen, it will. I should have the review for this one up in a couple day so be looking for that.

And last but not least I am holding a Michelle Moran contest. It will be for a paperback signed copy of The Heretic Queen and a signed hardback copy of Cleopatra's Daughter. I will be reading and reviewing these in the near future and let me tell you I am so excited to read them. If you are interested head on over and check it out.

That is all that I can think of that has happened in the last two weeks. I would like to say that I am sorry for the delay. I just got back yesterday and am trying to get back into my routine .

speaking of ah-mazing...

This week, I have been reading...

Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover by Ally Carter, which was amazing. This series is fantastic.

Now I am in the middle of The President's Daughter by Ellen Emerson White. It was recommended to me by my school librarian and I like it so far.

Next: Crashed by Robin Wasserman and Chasing Fire by Suzanne Collins. So excited!

Hunger Games is AH-MAZING!

I just posted my review on my blog, The Clock Monkey.

Does anyone else agree with me in saying this is a truly wonderful book?

One of the best books I've read in a while.

Head over to TCM and disscuss!
