1. For the Fourth of July I decided to go to a movie and so I watched this:
2. Finished reading this:
One word: LOVED. I'm a huge fan of this series. I love it so much that I went back to ALA on Sunday just so I could get a galley during Sourcebook's giveaway.
So worth it
YA Books Central review coming soon!
3. Finished reading this:
Omg, this book is creepy, good! Think YA meets SUPERNATURAL. Only in this case the protagonist, Cas, kills the dead.
This was one of those books where I had to stand in a line to get the signed author galley during ALA. So worth it!

4. Very happy that I got this galley:
5. And over halfway through with this non-fiction book:
I can relate with so much of this memoir. I grew up with my mother wanting us to be raised in the Mormon faith. My father was agnostic. Also what's kind of ironic is my parents weren't married. So I grew up being told a good Mormon girl doesn't do certain things while in my home other non-Mormon things like drinking, having coffee, and other things were practiced. Very confusing.
Still I could relate with so much of this book. I was a lot like the author too in that I questioned what I saw and what I found out. I guess I still am.
Very courageous account of a woman's struggle with her faith and her decision to come back.
Ooh, and here's a photo of the galleys I did get at ALA. I want to thank all the publicists and publishers who were so sweet and shared with me! And I do share afterwards with my local libraries for their Teen Summer Reading Program and also have giveaways.
We hope to see this this weekend:
