What I'm reading now

Hey fellow readers/bloggers! I know I've been so laxed on reviewing, but to be fair I sort of have a reason for it. I have way to many books that I'm reading that I can't finish them. I know this sounds horrible, and in a way it is because I know I need to finish one and then start a new book. I have this bad habit of starting new ones because I get easily distracted. So I'm pledging today that I will finish all the ones I have started, and to make sure I'm going to list the ones I've started here and mark them off one by one. Then after  I do that I have my review books I need to work on.

Printed copies:

Envy by Gregg Olson
Crime lives--and dies--in the deceptively picture-perfect town of Port Gamble (aka “Empty Coffin”), Washington. Evil lurks and strange things happen--and 15-year-olds Hayley and Taylor Ryan secretly use their wits and their telepathic “twin-sense” to uncover the truth about the town's victims and culprits.


Crank by Ellen Hopkin

In Crank, Ellen Hopkins chronicles the turbulent and often disturbing relationship between Kristina, a character based on her own daughter, and the "monster," the highly addictive drug crystal meth, or "crank." Kristina is introduced to the drug while visiting her largely absent and ne'er-do-well father. While under the influence of the monster, Kristina discovers her sexy alter-ego, Bree: "there is no perfect daughter, / no gifted high school junior, / no Kristina Georgia Snow. / There is only Bree." Bree will do all the things good girl Kristina won't, including attracting the attention of dangerous boys who can provide her with a steady flow of crank.

The Darkest Minds by Alexandra BrackenWhen Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.



Notes from Ghost Town by Kate Ellison
 When sixteen-year-old artist Olivia Tithe is visited by the ghost of her first love, Lucas Stern, it’s only through scattered images and notes left behind that she can unravel the mystery of his death.

There’s a catch: Olivia has gone colorblind, and there’s a good chance she’s losing her mind completely—just like her mother did. How else to explain seeing (and falling in love all over again with) someone who isn’t really there?



Ten by Gretchen Mcneill

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.


Ebooks

Grave Mercy by Robin Lefevers

Seventeen-year-old Ismae escapes from the brutality of an arranged marriage into the sanctuary of the convent of St. Mortain, where the sisters still serve the gods of old. Here she learns that the god of Death Himself has blessed her with dangerous gifts—and a violent destiny. If she chooses to stay at the convent, she will be trained as an assassin and serve as a handmaiden to Death. To claim her new life, she must destroy the lives of others.

Blood Rights by Kristen Painter
Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle's body bears the telltale marks of a comarré—a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her running into the mortal world...and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks.

  1. Well, hope this helps: I hear Grave Mercy is just AWESOME and I've read Notes from a Ghost Town - the mystery kept me guessing and turning pages at a rapid pace - should be a quick read for you!

    1. I'm really enjoying Grave Mercy or what I've read of it, but it's just finding the time for me right now.

      I think I kinda stopped Ghost town because I wasn't finding it to interesting, but maybe I need to read further along.

  2. I do the same thing. I have heaps of books that I start and then don't finish and half the time they belong to the library so I have to give them back. I did that to The Darkest Minds. I think I read about a chapter and then put it down. Good luck finishing everything!

    1. I really enjoy the darkest minds because I like the whole kids with powers and what not it reminds me of xmen. It's just the whole time issue for me now. (and the 20 billion books I seem to read at once) It's nice to hear from you.
