What are you reading?

I don't know if it has anything to do with the fall weather, or if I'm just always like this and I never noticed, but I've been loving reading like crazy lately. The only problem with this is re-reading everything I own, but still wishing for new books.

Sure, there are plenty of good ones that are fun to read the second time around too, but a new book right now is like cheesecake. A new book that is super wonderful is like chocolate cheesecake.

What's on my plate right now? I'm re-reading Pretties by Scott Westerfeld. I just finished Uglies, again. I finished Firelight (which I loved) by Sophie Jordan and I'm reading My Double Life by Janette Rallison.
I went to Costco on Saturday and found a stack of books I wanted. Not that I bought, mind you, just that I wanted. A nice hundred dollar or so stack. Aaahhhh. I love books.

On Amazon last week I ordered The Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook: From Cauldron Cakes to Knickerbocker Glory--More Than 150 Magical Recipes for Muggles and Wizards by Dinah Bucholz.

Because it sounded so cool and I can't imagine how fun it's going to be to eat Harry Potter food for Halloween.
I'm still waiting for that one to arrive. I hardly ever buy cookbooks. It takes something pretty creative, like Chocolate Never Faileth, by Annette Lyon or something equally alluring to catch my attention.
I'm not so good with keeping up with Goodreads or Shelfari, but I do read. A lot. And, let's face it, I would rather spend my time writing books that giving public reviews books I've read.

Hope you find a good book to lose yourself in. I only mention books I think would do the trick, so be brave. Try one out. Well, take into consideration that I love Middle Grade and Young Adult. And yummy food that I may never figure out how to make. But I'll try anyway.

And tell me what you're reading. I'm always on the hunt for another good book.

I'm pretty much dying to get both of those cookbooks. ;)

I've been reading up a storm lately too and it feels wonderful. I hate being without stuff to read. You wouldn't think that's a problem, with so much out there, but when it comes to hundred-dollar-stacks...well, let's just say that I'm loving my local library right now.

I'm really enjoying "Luck of the Draw" and have heard good things about "The Roadshow" so that's next on my list.
