Past, Present, & Future #13

Past, Present, & Future Reading Pile is a  feature on my blog where I do a post every Sunday to keep track of the books I've read the week before, what I'm currently reading and which books I hope to start and finish during that week. 
The Past

Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Release Date: December 29, 2009
When Kaylee Cavanaugh screams, someone dies. 
So when teen pop star Eden croaks onstage and Kaylee doesn’t wail, she knows something is dead wrong. She can’t cry for someone who has no soul. 
The last thing Kaylee needs right now is to be skipping school, breaking her dad’s ironclad curfew and putting her too-hot-to-be-real boyfriend’s loyalty to the test. But starry-eyed teens are trading their souls: a flickering lifetime of fame and fortune in exchange for eternity in the Netherworld—a consequence they can’t possibly understand. 
Kaylee can’t let that happen, even if trying to save their souls means putting her own at risk...

I can't wait to read book 3! =D I love Rachel Vincent! Read my review here
Never Have I Ever, by Sara Shepard
(The Lying Game, #2)
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: August 2, 2011
My perfect life was a lie. 
Now I’d do anything to uncover the truth. 
Not long ago, I had everything a girl could wish for: amazing friends, an adorable boyfriend, a loving family. But none of them know that I’m gone—that I’m dead. To solve my murder, my long-lost twin sister, Emma, has taken my place. She sleeps in my room, wears my clothes, and calls my parents Mom and Dad. 
And my killer is watching her every move. 
I remember little from my life, just flashes and flickers, so all I can do is follow along as Emma tries to solve the mystery of my disappearance. But the deeper she digs, the more suspects she uncovers. It turns out my friends and I played a lot of games—games that ruined people’s lives. Anyone could want revenge . . . anyone could want me—and now Emma—dead. 
More please?! Great YA mystery series! Read my review here

I am SO happy to finally be starting this! I haven't officially "started" it yet, but I will tonight before I go to bed. =) I've been dying to read this book for some time. I've heard great things!

After I finish Born at Midnight, I'm going to start Firelight. I normally post two back ups after the book I'm "currently reading", but since I haven't really been getting through all of them I decided to post only one this week. =) I know, I am SO late on reading Firelight. I'm probably the only person in the blog-o-sphere who hasn't read it. It's been on my list FOREVER and I'm finally getting to it. Yay!!

What books do you plan on reading this week? Also, by the way, I've signed up for April Page Count Contest over at Angela @ Reading Angel's blog. You should check it out!! You can find out more information on the contest here
