Borrowed on Kindle:

I know, I know. Why am I reading a sequel of a book I wasn’t crazy about to begin with? Because it was free. When I saw it was available via the new Kindle lending feature, I decided to give it a shot.

Borrowed from my local library:

I’m reading this with a few others in the Nothing But Reading Challenges group at Goodreads. I loved the first steampunk book from last week (The Alchemy of Stone) so I was excited to read another. I may have to up my participation level in the Steampunk challenge!

These two are for the YA Series Challenge. I keep reading too much about The Mortal Instruments series, so I figured I should get cracking on catching up, especially with City of Fallen Angels coming out soon. I’ve been eyeing the Uglies series for awhile now, so when I saw it was available I thought it would be a nice contrast to the other stuff I’m reading right now.

These three are for the YA Historical Fiction Challenge. It had been so long since I last read a historical fiction novel that when I read The Vespertine last week I realized how much I had been depriving myself. These should keep me occupied the next few weeks, and hopefully sate my hunger for a good, old-fashioned love story.


These two I bought because they were available for under $3 on for my Kindle. I’ve been meaning to read them anyway, and I’m a sucker for a good deal. 🙂
