Welcome BACK to my Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today!
I know, I know, I switched to In Bed With a Book meme, but I’m switching back. I’m done trying to make this a blog hop, but still feel free to participate! Maybe someday I’ll try to make it happen as a blog hop again, but right now I feel like Gretchen trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.
This morning I’m reading:
Fallout (Lois Lane #1) by Gwenda Bond
Move over Veronica Mars, Lois Lane is the OG and she’s here to right wrongs!
I am so enjoying this book, because I really love how independent and tough Lois is. She’s not afraid to stand up for what’s right, even though she’s supposed to be flying under the radar. Getting picked to work for the Daily Planet’s teen paper, Lois is in her element. She’s also in contact with an online friend, Smallville Guy, after meeting him on a website for supernatural encounters (it seems she might have seen some dude flying, hmm). I like the mix of science and science fiction, as well as a heroine that not only cares about bullying, but does something to stop it. I often envy my fictional characters their hot boyfriends, or their wealth, but I can honestly say I most envy Lois is gumption and moxie. I could use more gumption and moxie in my dna.
Also, I get to meet Gwenda Bond for the first time this Thursday! She’s one of the YA authors coming to my bookstore (along with Megan Shepherd, Megan Miranda and Beth Revis, whom I’ve all seen before at signings or BEA). I don’t know if I’ll get the chance to read the second Lois Lane book by then, but dammit, I’m going to try!
What are you reading (or wish you had time to read) this morning? Are you reading the book you thought you’d be reading, or has today found you with a surprise?
