    I’m reading Coldest Girl right now. Taking it slow, because I just know I’m going to be dissatisfied with all the things when it’s over.

    I still need to read Patrick Ness’s “More Than This.” I had my intro to his writing fairly recently, and it left my hungry for more. Luckily, I have a copy of “More Than This,” so I have no excuse not to read it!
