I've started compiling a list of books that my school library needs to get, and if our very kind librarian is willing to bring them in, then I would literally jump out of my seat in excitement.
Here are some books I'm reading at the moment:
Shiver by Maggie Steifvater:
I've heard about the awesomeness of this one for a while. And the cover is absolutely amazing. It's a simple theme, but really meaningful. The branches are a net, a barrier between the protags' love. The drop of blood, and the wolf lurking in the background are also significant to the story.
Liar by Justine Larbaleister:
This book was also released a while ago, and the blurb really interested me. Then I saw it at my library today, and immediately picked it up. One of the librarians was looking at me weirdly when I started whooping. ><
Gallagher Girls 4: Only the Good Spy Young by Ally Carter:
Yay! I've been looking forward to reading this for ages, ever since it came out. I've been bugging my mum into getting it for me, and she finally relented! I'm going to do a review on the Gallagher Girls series later, because everyone should read it. And my school library doesn't have it yet, so this is going on the List.
(Personally, I like the Australian cover - the one on the right - better)
Some books I want to read:
Fallen by Lauren Kate:
This book has been out for a couple of months, and there's like 20 reserves at my library The school library doesn't have it either, so that's a bummer. But it's on the List. And I heart the covers!
The Chronicles of Vlad Tod by Heather Brewer:
It's been out in America for a while, and only got released in Australia on the 2nd of August. (Aaah, Australia...!) But the buzz about it has been really good, it's so exciting.
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins:
A friend of mine recently read it, lots of bloggers recommended it, so I'm going to read it. It's a sci-fi novel from what I can tell, and you know me, I'm a sucker for anything Sci Fi.
What books are you looking forward to reading?
