Whatcha Reading?

I just realized I haven't mentioned what I've been reading recently. I don't get to read as much as I would like during the semester but I have managed to sneak a few good reads in.
Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
LOVED this book! Great characters (Patch *swoon*) and a very intriguing plot. My only complaint was that the ending felt a little rushed. It's the first in a series. The second book comes out next Fall. I'm not sure how many books will be in the series.

Fire by Kristin Cashore
Fire is a companion book to Graceling. It has one overlapping character and it takes place about 30 years before Graceling. I was so excited to get this book into my hot little hands. Graceling is one of my favorite books so I had really high expectations for Fire. I think maybe my sights were set a little too high. I really enjoyed the book and definitely recommend it but it didn't sweep me away like Graceling did. It is a great story, strong characters and has an important message so it was worth the read.

Forest Born by Shannon Hale
Forest Born is the fourth book in the Bayern Series by Shannon Hale. If you haven't read her books I highly recommend them! She is a great writer! I really enjoyed Forest Born. I loved getting reacquainted with the characters from the other books and meeting new ones. Shannon can do no wrong in my eyes so of course I loved this book.

Next up on my list: Gone by Lisa McMann and Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater.
