Whatca' Reading?

I took a vacation to Valaprasio, Indiana to visit Mason's grandma and brought along a bunch of books because, even though I have revisions I should be working on, I really needed a bit of "input." I read Amy Thompson's THROUGH ALIENS EYES which I enjoyed tremendously, and I started Cherie Priest's FATHOM and sort of start-stopped Sharyn McCrumb's BIMBO'S OF THE DEATH SUN (it's become quite dated or it hasn't aged well, I think.)

Anyway, it got me wondering... what are YOU kids reading these days? Anything fun? Anything mind-blowing? Anything you want to recommend?

Funny enough, I asked this on my own blog yesterday.

I haven't read anything mind-blowing yet, but I just recently finished The Mortal Instruments trilogy (an urban fantasy by Cassandra Clare), and I'd recommend it for an entertaining read - though I rated it a 3 out of 5.

Maybe I'm just hard to please. ;)

Alas, I've gotten to that point where my old genre addiction has worn off, and I haven't quite found my new love. So, nothing terribly satisfying in the reading department. I think my last no sleep, can't eat series was Twilight.

I'm trying to tackle A Clockwork Orange, but wow, that slang is tough.

Ooh, just finished Neil Gaiman's Graveyard Book. Chills. Very good chills.

I just finished reading Marked by PC Cast and Kristin Cast and I'm thinking about starting into The Other Boleyn Girl. I'm 20 pages in but I'm not sure if I can stick with it at the moment.
