Hi Everyone :) Tracy again! Friday is going to be my regularly scheduled blog day from now on, which means you might actually get a regular blog from me, LOL-- or at least, that's my hope.
I loved Emily's blog yesterday, especially the book part, so I thought I'd take a couple of minutes and let you know what YA books I have been devouring this summer.
Early in the summer, I fell in love with Veronica Roth's Divergent. She gives us a really interesting heroine and a futuristic, dystopin world that absolutely fascinated me.
Sophie Jordan's Firelight. I did the whole Chills and Thrills Teen Book Tour with Sophie Jordan this summer and had so much fun with her-- she's such a great person. In preparationg for book two in the series, I reread Firelight, which was just as good the second time around!
Fins are Forever by Tera Lynn Childs, because, as you know, I love me a mermaid book ;) This one is just as fun and lighthearted as Forgive My Fins and just as wild a ride!
Jenny Han's series, Summer series. I devoured these three books, starting with The Summer I Turned Pretty, in about two days-- while on deadline. Which says a whole lot about how much I liked them!
Kody Keplinger's The Duff, which ended up being a really great love story, despite the title and marketing. The narrator had a great voice and it was a really enjoyable read.
Oh, and since I'm in the middle of writing Tempest Unleashed, I did just go back and read Tempest Rising for the first time since I wrote it, to make sure I've got Tempest's voice down (she's a lot different than Pandor, obviously ;)
So that's some of what I've been reading this summer. How about you? What are you reading?
