    Default What are you reading right now?

    I'm still working on Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilema"

    I love it. I'll be sad when I'm done it. I never knew corn, yield, farming, political policy, grain elevators, HFCS could be so fascinating.
    Stop thinking you’re not ready. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises. Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.

    I switched it up from my recent fantasy run... I had been immersed in lots of fairies and witches and magicians for awhile.

    I'm in the middle of Carl Hiaasen's new novel, “Star Island“. I was so excited to see he had a new one out; I adore his writing, he is so good for some laugh out loud fun.

    I'm about to start this book:

    The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1) by Patrick Ness - Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists

    I've been on a bit of a kick with the dystopian YA novels as of late.

    I am reading a book from my classroom library called, “Heir Apparent“. I try to read all of the books that I have in my classroom so that I can easily match up students with books that I think will interest them.

    I have “The Book of Negroes“ sitting on my bedside table waiting for me, though. I am excited to start it soon!

    You'll have to give me your review when you're done! Would love a good YA dystopian novel! I miss Katniss. (By the way, I still have your copy of Catching Fire, it's safe on my bookshelf!)

    Have you read Graceling yet, Book Worm? It's by Kristin Cashore.

    I will, for sure.
    I know you'll take good care of my book and I'll get it one of these days when it's not a blizzard. I'm not concerned

    I loved Graceling. I have the companion novel, Fire, on my TBR shelf here at home. Have you read it??

    Started it, but got side-tracked by something else and then it was due at the library so I brought it back. Figured I'd pick it up again soon; I was about 1/4 way through and it's really not as good as Graceling. I'll get back to it, though.

    I'm finishing up James Patterson's Sail right now. It' a little soap opera-ish for my taste, but I do like soaps, too! LOL Just not what I normally read. The last one I read was The Memory Keeper's Daughter...soo good!

    The YA section is my first stop when I go to the library.

    Another great YA read, if you haven't picked it up yet, is The Forest of Hands and Teeth, by Carrie Ryan. There are two companion novels as well, the Dead Tossed Waves, and the newest one... crap I have to look it up, I haven't read it yet but it's on my to read list.

    eta: looked it up... The Dark and Hallow Places. The first two were excellent, I'm hoping this is just as good. It's dytopian zombie fiction.
