Excellent advice for such bitterly cold weather, my lord.

Current TBR list.

Cruel Beauty, by Rosamund Hodge (About to start it.)
Divergent, by Veronica Roth
Insurgent, by Veronica Roth
Allegiant, by Veronica Roth
Four, by Veronica Roth
(^If I can track down a new, hardcover edition by the time I get to it.)
Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon
Dragonfly in Amber, by Diana Gabaldon

This will be my first time reading the Divergent series. I haven't seen the movie, and this is one of those rare times where I'll be reading the books first. (A friend of mine is curious about it, too, but he's not a reader, and is waiting to see what I think about the series before he buys it.)

I've seen the first episode of Outlander since it was free via OnDemand, I really enjoyed it, especially the second half. I also read the first chapter of the mass market paperback and enjoyed it as well. I won't get to see the rest of the first season until it comes out on DVD, so I have some time to get through the first two or three novels before then. 

I'm also already thinking about what classics to read in 2015. Right now, the top two are A Little Princess, and re-reading Romeo and Juliet. (And watching John Green's videos discussing it on Crash Course on YouTube.)

So all of these should tide me over until (probably) mid-spring.

49 Signs You're Addicted To Reading

Excellently written counter-point...

to this article, we now have this article.

While not exactly a die-hard fan of the current YA craze? I suppose when I think on it, the only thing I feel for the author of the original article, is pity. Not to personally attack her, but how insecure someone must be that they have to try to make others feel bad about what they enjoy, even if she doesn't like the same thing.

I grew up part tomboy, part girly-girl, and nerd. So I'm used to this kind of opinion-and not caring about it when it comes to my fandoms and interests.

Like what YOU like. Read what YOU want to read, and don't let someone else make you feel bad for doing so. Don't give them that kind of power over you.

Unmasked, by C.J. Barry (The Unforgetables #4.)

Unmasked - C.J. Barry Four stars for all of the books. I really enjoyed this entire series.

Summer reading plans.

(At the moment, anyway.)

Pride and Prejudice
, by Jane Austen
(I'm currently re-watching the 1995 BBC miniseries. This is my first time reading the book.)
The Fault In Our Stars, by John Green
The Windflower, by Sharon and Tom Curtis

I have no idea what I'll read after that. Hopefully my friend will have shipped the first novel in Lisa Kleypas' Hathaway series back to me by then.
