Reading Round-Up

During Christmas vacation, I unexpectedly managed to read a lot of books.  For anyone who needs some ideas, here is what I read.
1.  The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz--A fun detective type book.  The family of characters are hilarious!
2.  Goliath by Scott Westerfeld--The third and final in the Leviathan series.
3.  Fly by Night by Frances Hardinge--A long book and a sequel still to read.
4.  Liesl & Po by Lauren Oliver--Very cute story and a huge genre change from Lauren Oliver
5.  Divergent by Veronica Roth--AMAZING go get it right now and start reading.....or wait, the sequel won't be out til at least March.
6.  LIfe's a Beach by Claire Cook--Fun "beach" read
7.  13 Little Envelopes by Maureen Johnson--I got this is a free download.  It was a cute quick YA read.
8.  The House of Silk a Sherlock Holmes Novel by Anthony Horrowitz--Love Horrowitz and intrigued the by the Sherlock Holmes content. 
9.  Crossed by Ally Conde--Loving this series.  I did like the first one, Matched, better, but am looking forward to #3.

Sad to have my hours of unending reading cut, and having to be at school at the very early morning, but excited to hear what my students have been up to!
