I'm reading THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE by Jandy Nelson. The language is beautiful and it's a sad, refreshing look at unexpected death and the aftermath on a family.

I'm reading SELF-EDITING FOR FICTION WRITERS by Renni Browne and Dave King. I've browsed through it before, but I'm paying closer attention this time around now that I'm editing seriously.
I'm reading CRACKED, by fellow 2012 debut author K.M. Walton. Immediately the characters pulled me in. Their stories are heartbreaking, but hopeful too. Tough subjects here - bullying, suicide, abuse - but important ones. The kind that need to be talked about. CRACKED is so, so good.
