12 Question of the Week: What Books Are You Reading Right Now?

Hey everyone! It’s Clara Kensie, back with a new Question of the Week! Pretty much the only thing writers love as much as writing is talking about writing. So each week here at Adventures in YA Publishing, I post a question for you to answer. The questions cover all topics important to writers: craft, career, writers’ life, reading and books. Together we’ll become better writers by sharing tips and discussing our habits and practices.

WHAT BOOKS ARE YOU READING RIGHT NOW?


Hey folks! I’m eyeballs-deep in revisions for the sequel to RUN TO YOU, so I’m keeping this week’s question short and sweet: What book(s) are you reading right now?

  8. I finished Lauren Myracle's SHINE this morning, and I absolutely loved it. I'm thinking I might do a reread of a childhood favorite next: Judy Blume's JUST AS LONG AS WE'RE TOGETHER. And of course, I'm anxiously awaiting ALLEGIANT's release!

  9. Great titles, everyone! It's so hard to find time to read during revisions, sometimes my only chance is while I'm drying my hair in the morning. Ha!

  10. Best of luck with the revision! I just finished EVERY DAY by David Leviathan--very intriguing premise (guy waking up in someone else's body, a different person each day). :)

  11. Love seeing what others are reading! I just started DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS by CJ Omolulu, am partway though UNDER THE EMPYREAN SKY by Chuck Wendig, and MONEYBALL by Michael Lewis, and need to loop back to THE LAST DRAGONSLAYER by Jasper Fforde.

  12. The book I am reading right now (that I can't stop talking about) is YA thriller "The Riddle of Prague" by author Laura DeBruce (http://theriddleofprague.com/about/). It is book one of the Quicksilver Legacy series and the "to be continued" at the end has caused me to reread the book 10x and anxiously await book 2, "The Temple of Paris." The book follows leading lady Hana Silna and her trip to Prague to reclaim her family home, "The Rockery." It seems that a lot of suspicion and mystery surround this home and a break in leads Hana to the discovery of an old notebook with a cryptic riddle and clues from an alchemist about an elixir of immortality. Hana's family in Prague are all linked to this grand experiment of immortality and it's up to Hana to figure things out. The book is a thrilling page turner that really is the complete package! Murder, mystery, romance and SO much suspense I can't recommend it enough :)
