This is a brand spankin' NEW FEATURE sprung from the mind of my fellow SKULLBLOGGERY buddy BRITTERSWEET at PLEASE FEED THE BOOKWORM, and I will be co-hosting it with her!! *twirls*
We want you to TELL US what you are reading NOW and what you are thinking about reading NEXT. We are curious about what choices you make from your TBR pile and WHY.
So join us here and on PLEASE FEED the BOOKWORM!
I usually have 3 - 4 books going at a time: one ARC, one slow read (something I can only handle a chapter or two at a time time), a pleasure read (mostly YA Fantasy or Scifi); and since my New Years "resolution" to have at least one Adult book going, one adult book. The number varies because sometimes my reads fill more than one niche. For example my ARC might be a YA Scifi pleasure read, or my Adult novel might be my slow read. Currently I am reading four stories.
I was so happy to receive this book from First Reads. I have been trying to read more diverse stories.

THE PLEASURE READ...
I have wanted to read Dorothy Must Die for ages. I don't like paying a lot for books when I am not familiar with the Author's writing, so if I am interested, I first try to get an ARC or win it in a giveaway. If that fails I keep checking for a Kindle deal (usually $2.99 or less) and at the library. I was lucky and won a signed copy (personalized to La La!!), but the author was touring, and it was taking forever for it to arrive, so I picked up this prequel novella for $1.99 to tide me over. My Dorothy Must Die came the same day. Lol.
MY SLOW READ...
Anne Serling is a casual friend of mine, and I am reading this book slowly because her father Rod Serling (The Twilight Zone) grew up in Binghamton N.Y., where I grew up, and currently live, and I am slowly savoring it. Usually my slow reads are very dense adult novels that fry my brain if I try to read more than a chapter at a time, or review books I have been sent that are not quite my cup of tea. However, reading this memoir set in places I am familiar with, about father-daughter bonds from my era, and through memories of the man who envisioned and wrote one of my all time favorite television shows, makes this book a treasure for me to read.

AN ADULT READ...
I originally saw THE GOLDFINCH in the ballots for the Goodreads Favorite Books of 2013 voting. The blurb intrigued me so I put it on my GR TR shelf as a maybe for my adult reading New Years "resolution", and then promptly forgot about it. It popped up on one of the many discount ebook emailings I subscribe to as "free for a limited time", so I nabbed it. I love this book.
IN THE FUTURE...
Of course I will be reading my beautiful copy of Dorothy Must Die as soon as I finish the prequel novella No Place Like Oz.
I also just joined EDELWEISS and my first eARC request was A Thousand Pieces of You, so we will see how that goes. It is a YA Scifi I have seen quite a few bloggers tweeting about.
