A couple of "Young Adults" novels: "Virus", that I just finished, and "Flood", that I'm beginning. By Diane Hoh.

Hm, kind of interesting story but the emo-details were boring. I guess I'll stick to my murder mysteries. xD

Yeah, it is! We discussed it here...a year or more ago? Look it up when you are done.

Currently I am reading Wicked again, after reading the 2 sequels.

Also listening to The Hour I First Believed, by Wally Lamb. I intended to "read", not listen, to it...but it was in on CD. Very good so far! He is a great writer!

Lola - when I don't have time to read but need to do other things like cleaning or cooking or driving to and from work I always have an audio book in the CD player. That's really relaxing.

I've listened to so many books by now. It's too bad I don't have the time to devour them by reading...

I've never read any of hers -- didn't even know she wrote. What are they like?

I'm reading a book called Dragonfly by Frederic Durbin. I picked it up at a thrift store because the cover art caught my eye. It's a fascinating fantasy horror story of an strange spooky underworld where the evil aspects of Halloween exist year round. The dangerous underworld is beneath the basement of her uncle's funeral parlor. This book remind me of Nightmare Before Christmas.

Eh... IMO, "The Lovely Bones" was hyped up to be way more than it delivered. It's one of those books that when I finished it I was like, "Eh... that took up a couple days of my life".

I'm now reading a book called "Jennifer Johnson Is Sick And Tired Of Being Single". It's gonna be just a filler until I decide what good book I wanna read next.
