I am reading Fourth Comings by Megan Mccafferty. It is her 4th book in the Jessica Darling series. I love it! I am also reading all of Oscar Wilde's short stories. Good stuff. /smile.gif" style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=":)" border="0" alt="smile.gif" />

For HP fans who like Science I recommed My Teacher is An Alien (it is not a baby book it is for grades 6 an up) and The Young Wizard Series by Diane Duane.

I just started Ballet Shoes. Emma Watson is going to be in the film adaptation, so I thought I should read it because I obviously like ballet so much. It is really good.

I just started a new book, The Exchange Student by Katie Gilmore. It is a good book....but not the best I've read.

Currently I am finishing up Splendor, the last of the Luxe series. I really enjoyed these books more than I originally thought I would. They take place in a socialite class that no longer exists and I love the character connections between sisters. It's a great series if anyone is interested!

Currently I'm reading Bearing an Hourglass by Piers Anthony.
I think after I finish this book I am going to start The Hobbit along with the other Lorn of the Rings series.
