I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Reading for my RL book club as part of our year of YA.
Not the best of the books we've read this year, but certainly not the worst book I've ever read either.
Each section has a heading: "XX days before." Each time I see it, I wonder, "Before what?" And that is what is keeping me reading right now.
