The mystery of a fantastic book.

Last Tuesday at the library:  I’ll just skim over the titles in the YA section, just to see. Oh look, Under The Never Sky. But it’s vacation next week. The kids will be home. I have a ton of stuff to do. I’ll just stick it in my bag. Eh, just another dystopian.

Wednesday:  Didn’t even look at the library bag.

Thursday: Fine, I’ll read the first chapter. Yep. Just what I thought. Another dystopian. Seriously? Do we need another? I should’ve left it on the shelves. What was I thinking?

Friday: All the boys gone on a cub scout overnight. No time to read. Make dinner for four middle school girls on a sleepover, then go to bed early so they can be silly and talk without “the mom” eavesdropping. In bed, plot the second book after A Spy Like Me. I guess I’ll bring that book up with me, just in case. Didn’t read it.

Saturday: Clearly, I’m not going to get any work done. I’ll read one more chapter. Wha? What just happened? Hmm. This just got a lot better. I’ll read the next one just to see. Chapter three introduces Peregrine’s pov (the boy). Seriously. I’m a goner.

Saturday night: I leave watching a great movie with thirty minutes to go because I need to read more before bed. I’ll be grumpy because I wasn’t even going to watch the movie! Stayed up too late reading.

Sunday: Church. Dinner at the parents. All I want to do is stay home and read. Couldn’t.

Sunday night: The kids are in bed. Just a few more pages. Then I’ll going to write my blog post for today.


Finished an incredible book that I couldn’t put down. Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi was not another dystopian. It was incredibly written with amazing tension…and it was one of the best love stories I’ve read in a while.

News: The big reveal of the cover for A Spy Like Me will be Next Monday at YA Confidential, and a giveaway here!

Have you read a great book lately?
