Book Binge Results

Here is my list of books that I read in May. I've never kept track of the books I'd read before, and I may well continue to do so now that the Book Binge has finished. I was hoping to have finished a book that I own myself so I could give it away.. but sadly, only library books so far. Maybe next month. Maybe I'll try and do it every month from now on.. we'll see. On with the list.

1. Queen of Babble in the Big City by Meg Cabot (I heart Meg Cabot)
2. Gossip Girl: Because I'm Worth it by Cecily von Ziegesar (I will never read another book in this series)(but I love the TV series)
3. After Dark by Haruki Murakami (Murakami is one of my favouritest authors ever)
4. Size Doesn't Matter by Meg Cabot (another Meg Cabot!)
5. The V Club by Kate Brian (I did a LOT of YA reading this month!)
6. Broken Soup by Jenny Valentine (I really want to read her other book)
7. Before I Die by Jenny Downham (I ended up bawling at 2am finishing this book)
8. Skin by AM Vrettos (a family torn apart by an eating disorder)
9. Good Girls by Laura Ruby (felt a bit dated to me)
10. America Is Me by ER Frank (powerful stuff)
11. Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka (probably shouldn't be counted as a book, but I always meant to read this)
12. An Offer You Can't Refuse by Jill Mansell (have enjoyed all of the books I've read of hers)
13. Follow the Blue by Brigid Lowry (not what I was expecting)
14. Blue Skies and Gunfire by KM Peyton (I felt it needed more about the war, but heyho)
15. Before Wings by Beth Goobie (magical)
16. Leaving Poppy by Kate Cann (a little on the creepy side)
17. Specials by Scott Westerfeld (a great way to end the series)


  1. That's quite the list! Since I have a house of teens, which YA book would you recommend? (Currently there are three girls and two boys (down from five and three, respectively: two are now no longer teens; those two and one other now live on their own.))

  2. I love keeping a list of the books I've read. I just think it's a fun thing to look back on and also helps if I'm not sure if I've read something!

    Twilight was my first adventure into YA sci fi and I'm enjoying it. I've wondered if Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series would be an easy leap to make. Do you think it is? I think I might like to give them a try.
