My Favorite Recent Reads

   Since this time of year is my marathon running downtime, I have been able to catch up on a few great books that I have been wanting to read.  I would love to write a review on each, but that would require time that I seem to not have right now with wedding season beginning.

     So, here are a few of my most recent FAVORITE reads, that I highly recommend to anyone.  FYI, you'll probably notice they are all YA.  Hey I can't help it, there is just some great YA stuff out there right now.


Ruby Red - By Kierstin Gier
Blood Red Road and it's sequel Dust Lands - By Moira Young
The Selection by Kiera Cass
The Birthmarked Trilogy by Caragh M. O'brien
Variant & Feedback by Robison Wells
Reached by Ally Condie
Breath by Sarah Crossan
The Hunt by Andrew Fukuda


I'd love to hear about some of your favorite reads or book suggestions.  So if you have a minute please leave me a comment:)

But keep going and you will understand whats going on. Also The Pledge was a great read. Oh and Darkness Before Dawn is awesome!! I have the second book and I need to read that one. But these are just a few books I really loved reading.
