Yay for Reading!

Last weekend, I had a fun delivery. This showed up at my door!
(Yes, it's an Advance Reader's Copy!)

I know, I know. Lucky me, right? Well. I'd offer to give it away, but it's not actually mine. I have seven days to read it and then pass it on to the next person on the list. No worries, though. Almost done with it, and can I just gush for a sec? LOVE! If you are a fan of YA, of heartbreakingly beautiful love stories, you want to read this book when it comes out in January. I'm just sayin. (Yes, I will be doing a review, but not today.)

Before Everneath showed up, I was already halfway through this.
(Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin--first in the epic series.)

Again, LOVE. Totally different from what I usually read. NOT YA (definitely written for adults), but absolutely brilliant, with beautiful writing. And one epic fantasy series I know I'll finish (FYI, this is a rare occurrence as epic and I don't always get along). I might have to subscribe to HBO just so I can watch the series.

But that's not all, my friends. No. I am also about four chapters into this:

Two chapters into this:

and just downloaded this so I can read it for a review.

Also my TBR list has five other books I got in the mail the other day, as well as one I picked up by Peter Brett. I think I'm set with reading material until November or so. But then I'll need some more.

So tell me. What's on your To be Read list? I'm dying to know.

Wow! You've got a ton to read! I'm reading two books right now for writing buddies (but I can't tell you anything about them....yet). ;)

Holy reading, Batman! I haven't read anything published in a long time. My brain just doesn't seem to be functioning well enough to keep sentences in order. I just got a copy of Maggie Steifvater's FOREVER in the mail (won it in a contest-woohoo!) ... so I'm hoping I can start that soon!!!

Looks like some great books. Right now I'm reading The Armor of Light by Karen Hoover. I'm also working on The Cure by Todd Hunter. I have a bunch of others waiting for me too, and sadly, I just don't feel in the mood for reading much right now. Have to, though. I have promised some reviews.

Brodi's cover is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen!
