Teen Tuesday

*Teen Tuesday is the day we set aside for teen book lovers to visit with each other to find out what's being read in the world of young adult literature. You can comment whether you are a participant or not. Visit all the posters at*

In the past week, I have read two books.

At least, I think it's two. Now I'm wondering when I finished Violet in Private...

Okay, now that I have reminded myself of what I posted about last week, I realized I read more than I expected.

First I finished What the Storyteller Brings, which picked up tremendously towards the end. There won't be an official review on my blog, but if you would like to read my review it's posted on amazon, right here. It'll be easy to find, it's the most recent review (as of this blog post) and it's got my name on it. =D

After that (literally the very same day) I started and finished Violet in Private, which was absolutely freaking amazing and I can't wait for the next book. It seems like the books just keep getting better as they go! At first I was a little iffy, wondering if I'd enjoy the series, but now I know I love it, and I am really extremely excited to read more!

I would definitely recommend this series. Even if you don't think it's your thing, the books are definitely worth trying. Expect a review of it on my blog sometime either tomorrow or Wednesday. Which means that everyone who entered in my contest gets their last opportunity for extra entries =D

And after that, I took a break from my important to-be-reviewed books and read a smaller, younger book called Locomotion. It's by Jacqueline Woodson, and I picked it up at the library because I was looking for something short, and different. It's written in poems, and it was actually a very good book. Once again, I'm not going to have an official review on my blog, but eventually I might get to posting a small, simple review on Amazon. The book was nothing spectacular, but it was certainly interesting and extremely quick, so if you wanna read something quick and easy then I'd say go for it.

After that, I took a very short break from reading, and started up again with my copy of Nailed by Jennifer Laurens (to be released on September 22). After reading the first fifty pages or so slowly, I really got into it. There were some passages that I really loved, because they relate to my current guy situation (which is pretty sticky, if I do say so myself, but that's not something I should get into on Teen Tuesday... =P) so well. I am planning on posting those passages on my personal blog, Almost Available, even though I don't expect anyone to read them. I just want to keep them in my head...

So, as for the book itself, I don't need a long period of reflection to understand how I felt about it. I finished it about 45 minutes ago now, and my feelings are like this: it was cute, it was fun, it was interesting. Worth the read, but nothing extremely spectacular. A good time-waster with a happily-ever-after.

And now that concludes my reading week. I'd say it's been pretty successful... and I thought I only read two books =P Now I'm onto either Unbelievable by Sara Shepard or The Midnight Twins by Jacquelyn Mitchard. Not sure which yet. Any suggestions?
