Reading Update

So, just yesterday, I finally finished the Life As We Knew It series by Susan Beth Pfeffer! Over the past couple weeks I went through the adventures of Miranda and Alex in Life As We Knew It, The Dead and the Gone, and This World We Live In. Although I don't plan to review these books, you can look forward to a book comparison between the first two!

Now that those books are done, what am I reading now? I've started Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli, a short but intriguing book which is followed by Love, Stargirl, which I will read next!

Bookshelf Tour

This is partly random, but hopefully still interesting. After re-organizing my bookshelf (more like just cleaning it and finding books scattered around the house), I recorded a tour of my bookshelf! Hope you enjoy :).

Life As We Knew It - Done!

If you keep up to date with the sidebar thingy that says what I'm reading, you may know that I was reading Life As We Knew It, by Susan Beth Pfeffer. I believe I started it on Monday, and today, Saturday, I finished it! It was a fantastic read, so check back for a book review! Anyways, time to get started on The Dead and the Gone!

MY RATING (for Life As We Knew It): ******* 7/10

Bibliophilic Contentment

With so many books out there, some wonderful, some horrible, and some so so, it's always a struggle to decide on books to read. Time is of the essence, so I LOVE knowing what books I plan to read, because then I can jump right into a new world, and then feel accomplishment when I finish books on my list. Lately, I've been obsessing over http://www.goodreads.com, forming a clearer understanding of what books I want to read. With an ever-growing and already lengthy to-read list, I finally got around to sort of organising it. Fall break is right in front of me, and I can't wait to sit on my pillow pile, on the couch, or on a bench surrounded by trees, reading books, books, and more books! So, the master short-term list is.......


  1. Life As We Knew It -Susan Beth Pfeffer
  2. The Dead and the Gone -Susan Beth Pfeffer
  3. This World We Live In -Susan Beth Pfeffer
  4. Stargirl -Jerry Spinelli
  5. Love, Stargirl -Jerry Spinelli
  6. Inside Out -Maria V. Snyder
  7. Outside In -Maria V. Snyder
  8. The Declaration -Gemma Malley
  9. Blood Red Road -Moira Young
  10. Divergent -Veronica Roth
  11. Insurgent -Veronica Roth
Oh, and I forgot to mention! Not only do I have a wonderful list of wonderful books, I have a reason to make frequent trips to the library! I've already gotten the first 5, plus Blood Red Road, and so I'm all set, but I will of course enjoy the journey to the library when it comes time to return what I have read, and pick up more!!! Always so exciting!
