I'm reading "Glazed Murder" by Jessica Beck, it's a cozy mystery and so far good.
Next I plan to read "For Darkness Shows the Stars" by Diana Peterfreund. I'm super excited for it because it's a post-apocalyptic YA retelling of "Persuasion" by Jane Austen.

The Innocent by David Baldacci. It's really good if you're into thrillers. It's got a pretty clever story line.

Now I am reading Carlos Ruiz Zafón new book called
The Prisoner of Heaven.

Only few pages left and then I will read

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenster.

I have heard mixed reviews from it, but still, i have found circus world interesting.
I first tought this is book for teenagers age or something like that,
but it is book for adults.

I just finished The Night Circus and I loved it! The style is sort of magical realism, and the timeline isn't completely linear which I think turns some people off. I think it's one of those books where if you give yourself up to the atmosphere and experience, is very enjoyable. If you can't/aren't willing to do that, then you like it a lot less. I think initially the book was written for adults but it was marketed to teens to cash in on the whole YA fantasy craze. But really I wouldn't call it a "teen book". It doesn't alientate younger readers in any way, but it doesn't specifically cater to them either.

I'm currently reading The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles.

Hot Stuff: Disco and the Remaking of American Culture by Alice Echols

It's sad that I have to read this book while I'm sitting at my computer, I feel compelled look up almost every song that's mentioned on youtube.
