recently finished: Nothing new, but I still have a few I haven't written up yet. 

currently reading: Leave No Trace, by Mindy Mejia. She wrote last year's Everything You Want Me to Be, which I loved, and this one is drawing me in as well. A speech therapist in a psychiatric institute is tasked with communicating with the young man who was arrested for breaking into a camping store. He refuses to talk to anyone since he was picked up, but they know who he is. He and his father disappeared ten years ago in the woods. Now she has to figure out how to get this newly found young man to speak, to open up, and to trust her so that she can find out what has been happening to him for the last ten years. I'm not very far in yet, but it's crazy good. It just came out last week, so snatch it up soon while it's still hot! 

up next: A bunch of middle grade books that I have been looking forward to! Playing Atari with Saddam Hussein, Born Scared, and Merci Suarez Changes Gears. Excited!
