Welcome to Gaia! ::

stacy_medina
I have another suggestion for you. Mind Games by Kiersten White.
Also, I read the first few chapters of Mila 2.0 by Debra Dirza and holy crap it is amazing so far. I can't wait to get to actually read it when it is released in two weeks.

Mind games definitely sounds interesting (and I see you've blogged about it! ^^)) Distopia's are always so hit n miss with me, but this sounds like something way different. Ill definitely have to give it a try.
Mila 2.0 sounds pretty cool too. You'll have to let me know what you think when you're finished. And I'll definitely put them both on my list! Thanks! heart

Added three more books! I found a wonderful website called "Daily Lit" that will send you an e-mail with a daily excerpt from their selection of books at any time you request. c: I have mine set for about 12:30, 12:40, and 12:50pm EST for the three I selected. It's really neat. Sure, it's slow reading, but there's something nice about just receiving a nice piece of literature daily that you can read in a few minutes then anticipate the following bit the next day! And if you want, you can request the next excerpt sooner. c:

Sorry to butt in, but I just wanted to say that I used to love reading JP's books (the only reason I don't so much any more is a time aspect since I'm so busy with university reading, haha). I've read:

Songs of the Humpback Whale
The Pact
Keeping Faith
Plain Truth
Salem Falls
Perfect Match
Second Glance
My Sister's Keeper
Vanishing Acts
The Tenth Circle
Nineteen Minutes

If you guys haven't read Plain Truth or Salem Falls, I would totally recommend them. They were my favourites (especially Salem Falls, for some reason). :3 Vanishing Acts was the first one I read and I loved that one too. <3

I've read;
My Sister's Keeper
Vanishing Acts
The Pact
Nineteen Minutes
House Rules
Lone Wolf
Sing You home
Change of Heart
Handle with Care

*thinks* that looks about right..

I own;
All listed above &;
Mercy
Salem Falls
Second Glance (Currently reading. But stopped since I got distracted by another book and I have a new book on the way so Second Glance is on hiatus lol)
Plain Truth
The Tenth Circle
Keeping Faith
Perfect Match

Ugh. Longest day ever today... I finished Think Twice sooner that I had originally thought so now I have no book for tomorrow at work.... Well.. That's a lie. I have like 3, but I don't wanna start them, then get Frost Burned then stop reading the one book halfway through so I can read Frost Burned... 'Sides, I guess I don't need to read anyway; We have an event going on anyway.. *shrug*
Idk. I'll probably take something anyway. Thinking about wither a Jodi Picoult or a new Lisa Garner book I got last weekend...
