Books!

I've started working my way through my BooKrushers 11 from 11 during 11 reading list, and I'm really excited about my most recent arrivals!

I read to my kids before they go to bed. We're all fantasy fans, and we pretty much always read MG fantasy, but this time I suggested we try something different:
I'll tell you more about this soon, as I intend to review it when we're finished, but for now I'll just say "Bravo, Terry Lynn!" And if you haven't checked out her blog, you really should!

I've just finished The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting and am now reading Desires of the Dead from my BooKrushers list. These books have all the stuff I love best in my YA: romance, paranormal, and lots of suspense.

I recently received J'adore New York by Isabelle Lafleche from the awesome Talli Roland:

And Delirium by Lauren Oliver from the wonderful Becky Taylor:

Also on my BooKrushers list, Across the Universe by Beth Revis:

Update: I just won a copy of The Hating Game on Talli Roland's blog!!! I've been dying to read this one and just waiting for the publication date (today - 3/9!) to get my own copy. If by some chance you don't know Talli yet, be sure to stop by her blog and tell her congratulations!
So much to read, so little time. *sigh*

What are you reading?

I'll be taking a little unplugged break while my kids are on spring break. I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Have a great Tuesday, Everyone!

Great reads! Terry rawks!! I have ATU; haven't finished it yet. So much to read; so little time. lol The others look awesome. I'm currently reading a manuscript for two writers, and then Haunted and Bandits - both for official book reviews.

Enjoy Spring Break!!! You have some great reading to do!

Have fun with the fam. I'm reading 1491. It's about America before Columbus. It's kind of scattershot details but still fascinating.

Old Kitty said...

I love reading with my kids too and usually we read MG Fantasy, but right now we are reading "Esperanza Rising" which is sort of like a Mexican version of Little House on the Prairie - it's so good!!! And bonus, some Spanish words for us all to learn. I'd like to read Dogsled Dreams, too. And I think you will love AtU. It's so dark and intense, but what an amazing plot! (and some romance, too)

Talli Roland said...

Look at all those lovely books! Hope you enjoy J'Adore, and have a great break!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I bet your kids like Terry's book!

Dawn Simon said...

Awesome books! I hope you and your family have a blast during Spring Break! :)

DEZMOND said...

I love Terry Lynn, she is such a nice person!
And love the cover for DESIRES OF THE DEAD book!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

I have Terry's book on my TBR list too. Right now I'm reading (blogging buddy) Heidi Willis' book Some Kind of Normal. It's really good! I have several other blog buddies books in my TBR pile right now...Plus Lenny sent me Hook for my birthday and I'm reading it. :) Have a great spring break....Miss you!

Jemi Fraser said...

LOVED Dogsled Dreams - read it to my students and they adored it!

Right now I'm reading Liar Society which is also awesome! :)

The Happy Whisk said...

Happy Reading.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh, great books! I hadn't seen that cover of Delirium! I hope you have a fantastic spring break with the family!

Deniz Bevan said...

Sounds like a great combination of books! I'd like to read Dogsled Dreams, too. Working my way through Dorothy Dunnett at the moment, and reading a Linda Howard romance. I've never read her before and I don't normally read in the genre I'm writing, so it counts as research, right? [g]

Lynda R Young said...

Wow, that's fantastic! So many books. I'm the same-- I have heaps of books to read and so little time to read them. I must make time.

TerryLynnJohnson said...

AHHHH!! My book is on Susan Field's blog!!!! Woo!

Thanks so much! I sure hope your kids are liking it, even though it's not fantasy!

I just finished Delirious. LOVED it! I haven't seen that cover before! Great books here!

Jennifer Shirk said...

OOOOh, nothing brings a smile on my face than seeing so many great books!! Enjoy!

Madeleine said...

Ooh enjoy your reads. I'm reading 'The Ask and The Answer' by Patrick Ness.(YA fiction) :O)

Lola Sharp said...

I really enjoyed Terry's book. :)

I just finished a few books, but one that I liked was Like Mandarin.
Right now I'm reading Clarity.

Have a wonderful spring break. :)
Love,
Lola

Kari Marie said...

I'm reading Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison and soon to start on Shiver.

Have a lovely spring break.

Jai Joshi said...

Have a great spring break and enjoy those lovely books you listed. "J'adore New York" sounds like my kind of book.

I read Across the Universe and The Hating Game. I'm almost done with Delirium.

Last night, I finished my ARC of Possession by Elana Johnson. I'm also reading Gossip from the Girls' Room. I plan to read Dogsled Dreams next.

Carolyn V said...

Wow! That's a great list of reads! I'm waiting for my copy of Across the Universe! I can't wait to get a hold of it. =)

Hema P. said...

Hope you're having a wonderful time reading and just "spring breaking" with your kids!! :-)

Laura Howard said...

Hope you're having a gret break! I wouldn't be able to choose which book to start with... decisions!! Let me know when you get The Hating Game, ok?

Lynn said...

You have some great reads here! I'm jealous regarding the Hating Game. It's not in stock in my area, and waiting to see if the library can get me a copy sooner than later.

Theresa Milstein said...

Coming over to say, Hi. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Madeleine said...

Dogsled dreams looks like a great story. I'll be interested to know what you thought :O)

Jackee said...

Oh, man, what a great list! I think I might have salivated a little. Sometimes books are better than food. :o) Can't wait to hear what you have to say about Terry's awesome book!

Connie Arnold said...

Hope you're enjoying reading, Susan. Congratulations on winning The Hating Game! I've been visiting my grandchildren and reading lots of kids' books to them.

Michael Offutt said...

Congratulations on winning the book. I wish my parents would have read to me as a child...it just wasn't their thing.

Alison Miller said...

Wow. I'm jealous. I need to enter more giveaways. :) Enjoy your spring break. And your reading!
