Teaser Tuesday (4)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

•Grab your current read
•Open to a random page
•Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
•BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
•Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"Lucky knew Lincoln had a hard time talking on the phone because he needed both hands for tying knots on a string or a cord. When he was about seven, Lincoln's brain had begun squeezing out a powerful knot-tying secretion that went through his capillaries and made his hands want to tie knots."
~The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron with illustrations by Matt Phelan (pg. 17)

It's Monday! What are you reading? (11)

It's Monday: What are you reading? is a weekly meme from BookJourney.

Long time, no blog! I took a little time off from reading and blogging during and after vacation, mainly to give my brain some time off since school starts this week. My trip was awesome, and if I have time, what with all the homework, I'll try to post some pictures.

Until then, here's what I've been reading:

I finished:
Cast in Chaos (Chronicles of Elantra, #6), by Michelle Sagara West
I love this series and this book doesn't disappoint. I love the characters and the way the Elantran world shifts and expands with each new book. Sagara-West has created an amazing world, and Kaylin is one of my favorite characters.

I'm reading:
Nothing! But give me a day or two for this change.

To be read:
For the next several months, I'll be blogging on mostly children's and YA books for my Materials for Youth class (can you say, "awesome"?!?).
