I really recommend reading Hearts at stake (or My Love Lies Bleeding in the UK), and Beautiful Dead by Eden Maguire.
Bad Girls Don't Die sounds interesting :)

Great books! Going Bovine was one of my favorites of 2009. Libba Bray is an amazing writer. I read Hearts at Stake last week, it's a very fun read. Have a great reading week!

That is such a great list of books! I hear Going Bovine is excellent, but I haven't had the chance to read it yet :)

Kathy Martin said...

I really liked Hearts at Stake when I read it. Wish is still on my TBR pile waiting for me to find some time. I am also looking longingly at Going Bovine but my TBR stack is too tall for me to add anything to it for a while.

Happy reading!

Rebecca said...

These posts are really interesting. I've read Meridian before and it was pretty good.

Sheila (Bookjourney) said...

Jake, your reading Our Town for school brings me back -- I was Emily in my HS production, back when there were no iPods, Razor Scooters, or PSPs. Imagine the horror?!?
