The Lost Hero (Heroes of Olympus, Book 1)    Peter and the Starcatchers Box Set (The Starcatchers)Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 (Book 1)

City of Bones (Mortal Instruments)  Matched

Recently I have kind of given up on adult fiction. Nothing really good out there these days. So I have turned to youth fiction. The first seven I have listed have been read by Grace and myself but the last four I will have her wait till 16 or so because of some adult like themes. I just finished the second book in the Divergent series and I really like it. But hands down the one book that a lot of people may be overlooking is Michael Vey the Prisoner of Cell 25. The second book in this series just came out and I hope to purchase it in the next couple of weeks. I read a wide variety of book, fiction and non-fiction, if I don't have at least 2-3 books going at once something is wrong. I definitely need to read right before bed to relax and get in sleeping mode. If you haven't checked out some of these please give them a try, they won't disappoint.

I am reading this and smiling. I think I have told you I am a HUGE fan of Young Adult! Have Maze Runner on Kindle to read, reading Divergent right now, read the 2 "Matched" books. City of Bones is on my 'to read' list. Hunger Games..we both read those last year before the hoopla of the movie. Keilee was Katniss for Halloween and only 1 person knew who she was. I am sure there will be TONS of Katnisses this Halloween.

I also liked the "Delirium" series. I think I liked those more than the "Matched" ones. Also "Starcrossed" was good. I have read FOUR series the last few months that have 2 books and the 3rd to be released in the future. I swore after Harry Potter I would NEVER read a series until all the books are out. ;)
