This is the meme I was talking about before where I get to show you what I am currently reading and what I plan to read. It is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey.
Past Week Reads
Okay For Now by Gary D. Schmidt is about a boy named Doug moving into a new home with an abusive father, a juvenile delinquent brother, and a mother he loves. When things start to go missing everyone turns away from him. This book was hilarious and the fourth book I've read by Schmidt which means he is one of my favorite authors.
I'm Down by Mishna Wolff is a memoir that accounts the authors childhood with a father who thought he was black and being too white for the black kids and too black for the white kids. Another hilarious yet meaningful read.
Book Club Read
So far we are at page 97 of The Night Circus about a mysterious night circus that is there one day and vanishes the next and about a magician's challenge. I'm captivated so far. It's getting close to a particular point that I can't wait to see what happens to the two main characters. There is so much mystery about the circus and I'm wondering when was it created?
Possible Reads For This Week
Stuck On Earth by David Klass is about an alien taking over a fourteen year old's brain to see if the world is worth saving or needs to be destroyed. Klass wrote a favorite of mine called You Don't Know Me so I expect greatness.
The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells is a classic about a scientist who's experiment goes wrong when he was able to turn himself invisible but unable to turn himself back. So far I'm liking it and hope to read the others like it like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Glitch by Heather Anastasiu is about Zoe and the world she lives in where everything is controlled through computer chips but then she starts glitching and she discovers having her own thoughts and feelings and... telekinesis. Got a girl here with powers. Awesomeness.
The Fine Color of Rust by P.A. O'Reilly has the most fantastic cover where a mother of two who lives in Australia campaigns to save the local primary school. I really just got this book because I love the cover but the story is different then what I'm used to. I've also never read a book that had the setting in Australia so that should be interesting.
Reviews Coming Up
Since I've already read this book I decided to put the title of Reviews Coming Up for it. Tall Story is about a boy and a wishing stone. He grows to an abnormal height and everyone in his small village consider him their savior. He is finally able to move to where his mother lives in London with his sister who loves basketball and doesn't understand why her mother is freaking out and saying how tall her brother is every chance she gets. She's about to find out.
