Spring Break! Yay! I have very little to do and a whole bunch of time for reading. It’s the best. Next week, however, I will be back in school. That sucks. But for now: no school! Yay!
Here’s this week’s book:
Genre: YA Supernatural/Paranormal (Light-Romance)
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co.
Publish Date: 2012

Goodreads Synopsis:

With the defeat of the evil Douglas behind him, Sam LaCroix is getting used to his new life. Okay, so he hadn’t exactly planned on being a powerful necromancer with a seat on the local magical council and a capricious werewolf sort-of-girlfriend, but things are going fine, right?

Well . . . not really. He’s pretty tired of getting beat up by everyone and their mother, for one thing, and he can’t help but feel that his new house hates him. His best friend is a werebear, someone is threatening his sister, and while Sam realizes that he himself has a lot of power at his fingertips, he’s not exactly sure how to use it. Which, he has to admit, is a bit disconcerting.

But when everything starts falling apart, he decides it’s time to step up and take control. His attempts to do so just bring up more questions, though, the most important of which is more than a little alarming: Is Douglas really dead?


“‘Um, are you watching Murder, She Wrote?’
‘I find it to be…soothing.’” (Hardback, pg. 149)

“Douglas was next to him, a hand resting on the boy’s shoulders. Douglas was smiling a little. It was creepy.” (Hardback, pg. 149)

So, what are you reading right now, or, how are you spending your free time (or did you spend it, if you’re break is over already)?
