What I'm Reading This Week #4

image source:  amazon.com

I am reading Beautiful Creatures by Kami Gacia and Margaret Stohl.  I saw the movie first, so I have a pretty good idea of what is going to happen in the story.  I know, I know, it's like breaking a rule: watching the movie before reading the book.  Truth be told, it's a rule that I break more often than I follow :)  

I'm really bad at keeping track of current book releases and often miss the great ones until everyone and their mother is reading it.  I am constantly surprised by tv shows and movies when the credits list the book that inspired the storyline.  I just keep adding them all to my reading list :)  No matter how much I read, my to-be-read list keeps getting longer.

Speaking of reading lists, here is the list of books I read in the past year, 2013:
