WWW (24) and Waiting on Wednesday (January 18th, 2012): 52 Reasons to Hate My Father by Jessica Brody

W. W. W. Wednesday is hosted by Should Be Reading a great blog that I subscribe to. Here's how it works... Each Wednesday I will answer the following questions:

What are you currently reading?

What did you recently finish reading?

What do you think you'll read next?

I'm late posting today because I've been trying to get a bunch of reading done, while staying on top of my reviews, but I figure, better late than never...

What are you currently reading?

The Fault In Our Stars by John Green~ You can never go wrong with a little John Green, and this book is no exception.  It takes a great talent to tastefully write humor into a book about cancer, and John Green makes it look easy.  I've just started this and already I can tell that this will be getting a 5-star plus rating.
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor~ How did I wait so long to read this?  It's amazing!  It's one of those books I find myself slow-reading because I really don't want it end.  Laini Taylor has a way of writing that is so beautiful; a gift.

What did you recently finish reading?

Blood Red Road by Moira Young~ I've mentioned before that I could never get into the print version of this book, despite having tried several times.  Finally I got the audio, and it was PHENOMENAL!  Now I understand the hype.  I guess sometimes I just need the story in someone else's voice.
Stolen Away by Alyxandra Harvey~ This book was okay, but not a favorite.  I kind of expected a lot more, to be honest, having heard great things about her other books.  It does have a beautiful cover though, doesn't it?  Read my review HERE.
Fracture by Megan Miranda~ This book was great.  I read it because it was touted as a must-read for fans of If I Stay and Before I Fall but honestly, it was nothing like either of those books (both of which I loved).  That being true, I loved it just as much.  Read my review HERE.

What do you think you'll read next?

Everneath by Brodi Ashton~ This one comes out next week, and in keeping with my "stay on top of NetGalley books" New Year's resolution, I will be reading it next.  I've really been looking forward to this one for awhile, so I'm very excited!

My Awesome/Awful Popularity Plan by Seth Rudesky~ I think I'm going to want a funny book and Seth Rudesky is funny.  Plus it releases on Tuesday, and in keeping with that New Year's resolution...

"Waiting On" Wednesday is another fun blog event. Hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, this event gives us a chance to talk about the books we anxiously await the release of. Since there is ALWAYS a looooooong list of books I'm waiting on (I actually keep a spreadsheet), I figured this is one that I MUST do.

I was thinking of doing a different book this week, but the cover hasn't been revealed, and I hate doing WoW posts without covers.  This book was supposed to be for next week, so hopefully this week's book will have a cover soon...

What's a girl gotta do to earn her dad's trust (fund)? 

Famous teen heiress, Lexington Larrabee, has never had to work a day in her life. But all of that changes on her eighteenth birthday when her ever-absent, mogul father decides to take a more proactive approach to her life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast food restaurant employee, it’s the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her. Readers of all ages are sure to fall in love with Jessica Brody’s delightful riches to rags comedy.

Jessica Brody is great!  I'm not a huge fan of Contemporary YA, but her books always make me laugh because I love her characters.  I've always been a fan of riches-to-rags stories, and this one looks like it has the makings to be hilarious and unpredictable.  This will be a perfect vacation read and I can't wait!

Thanks for visiting my blog! I adore comments since they make me feel special and loved, just please don't spam me. I'm not interested in vacation offers, millions of dollars from Nigeria, or anything not book related!

Also, this is an award-free blog. As flattered as I am, I just don't have time. I'm happy if I have time to post all of my reviews on time, and am a momma of three to boot, but I appreciate the thoughts! XO
