LethalLovely~Maybe I've Always Been More Comfortable in Chaos (LethalLovely) | 1361 comments Thanks, Judithe! No way in hells I'm going to be able to read 10+ books this month with the fall semester started but I figured I can knock out 3.

Judithe | 5844 comments My thoughts exactly...have awhile before I start fall (second semester) but have classes to plan, etc., and tempting as it may be ( and so fun to book hunt), I'm resisting the longer challenges.

Good luck with classes!

Dana (Erato) | 922 comments It is not that often that I really get into YA books, and it is incredibly rare that I enjoy Juv stories. However, I just finished Airborn (Matt Cruse, #1) by Kenneth Oppel and it was awesome! What a fun story, truly. :) I haven't enjoyed juv fiction this much since Harry Potter. I'm so glad it's a series!
