I'm a 32 year old mom of two who loves to read (obviously)! I'll read just about anything - if it sounds interesting, it makes it's way to my to-read pile!

Currently reading

How My Summer Went Up in Flames
Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
The Cuckoo's Calling
Robert Galbraith
Someone Like You - Sarah Dessen This one was just OK for me...I think that the characters were not quite as drawn out as I'd have liked, and it read more like a book for a VERY young kid (think Babysitter's Club or something along those lines), except that the subject matter was beyond their scope. Parts of it seemed quite unbelievable for me, and I was 17 when this book was written, so it should have felt quite realistic.

To be fair, it's been a while since I've read a "true" young-adult book (as compared to the paranormal YA, or dystopian YA that is predominant right now), but still it just felt juvenile to me.

I have several books by Sarah Dessen on my to-read shelf, but I hope that they are better than this one...
