Spring Fever: Top Ten Books I'd Play Hooky With

  1. Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta - I've heard so much good stuff about this book and I haven't gotten around to reading it! Everytime I see the title I think, why haven't I read that yet?  Playing hooky with this book might just get my butt around to doing it!
  2. Fever by Lauren DeStefano - Loved the first, am anxiously trying to get my hands on the second without going broke (aka, waiting for it to come to the library)
  3. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta - I GOT MY HANDS ON THIS PRETTY. Searched my library and found it! I will be playing hooky (actually for me just in bed for prolonged periods of time) with this puppy as soon as I finish the next book on my list (found in the library as well.. it was a good haul)
  4. The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness - I'm in the middle of this one and it most certainly is a drop everything you have and read right now kind of book.
  5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins - I know, I know. "Zoe, that book is so overdone right now!" And I agree. But that doesn't mean I wouldn't play hooky with the entire series. The are just too awesome to read.
  6. I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter - I have the entire series on my nook, yet I haven't touched them. Why? I'm waiting for the right moment to just blow through the series  with extreme enjoyment. Like, for example, a day when I play hooky!
  7. Unearthly by Cynthia Hand - Another one I hear great things, yet haven't gotten around to finding it.
  8. Divergent by Veronica Roth - Let's play hooky to be prepared for Insurgent. There is nothing wrong with being prepared!
  9. Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers - The more I read about it, the more I wanna read it!
  10. Anything by Tamora Pierce - And I mean ANYTHING. It is almost ridiculous how much I enjoy her writing and I have no issues with rereading them frequently! #iregretnothing
