Past, Present, & Future Reads #33

Past, Present & Future Reading Pile is a feature I do on my blog every Sunday to keep track of the books I read the week before, the book I'm currently reading, and the books I'm hoping to read in the upcoming week. 
Pretty Crooked, by Elisa Ludwig
(Pretty Crooked, #1)
Publisher: Katherine Tegen 
Release Date: March 23, 2012
Willa’s secret plan seems all too simple: take from the rich kids at Valley Prep and give to the poor ones.
Yet Willa’s turn as Robin Hood at her ultra-exclusive high school is anything but. Bilking her “friends”-known to everyone as the Glitterati-without them suspecting a thing, is far from easy. Learning how to pick pockets and break into lockers is as difficult as she’d thought it’d be. Delivering care packages to the scholarship girls, who are ostracized just for being from the “wrong” side of town, is way more fun than she’d expected.
The complication Willa didn’t expect, though, is Aidan Murphy, Valley Prep’s most notorious (and gorgeous) ace-degenerate. His mere existence is distracting Willa from what matters most to her-evening the social playing field between the have and have-nots. There’s no time for crushes and flirting with boys, especially conceited and obnoxious trust-funders like Aidan.
But when the cops start investigating the string of burglaries at Valley Prep and the Glitterati begin to seek revenge, could he wind up being the person that Willa trusts most?
Being stuck in a rut sucks. It took me nearly 2 weeks to finish this book, even though it was really good. I finished it Monday. You can read my review here

Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: February 7, 2012
Sutton Mercer watches from the afterlife as her long-lost twin, Emma Paxton, takes over her identity to solve her murder. But after ruling out her early leads, Emma still hasn’t found Sutton’s killer. A lot of people wanted her dead—but one name keeps popping up: Thayer Vega. When the gorgeous and mysterious Thayer returns to town, Emma has to move fast to figure out whether he’s back for revenge…or if he already got it.
Set in a town where friends can turn into dangerous enemies and everyone harbors dark secrets, The Lying Game is a juicy new series that fans of the #1 New York Times bestselling Pretty Little Liars series—and the hit ABC Family show—will love.
I'm currently on page 110. Going to try and finish today so I can have my review up on time tomorrow! =D


Born Wicked, by Jessica Spotswood
(The Cahill Witch Chronicles, #1)
Publisher: Putnam Juvenile
Release Date: February 7, 2012
Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they’re witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.
Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word... especially after she finds her mother’s diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family’s destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.
If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren’t safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other.
After I finish Two Truths and a Lie, I'm going to start this. =) Very excited!

The Vampire Diaries; Stefan's Diaries: Origins
(Vampire Diaries: Stefan's Diaries, #1)
Publisher: HarperTeen
Release Date: November 2, 2010
A love triangle that will span eternity...
The year is 1864 and the Civil War rages on. But seventeen-year-old Stefan Salvatore is fighting a battle all his own. Engaged to marry someone he does not love, Stefan falls for a mysterious girl names Katherine. With her gleaming gurls and mischievous brown eyes, Katherine is beautiful and seductive...but she also harbors a dark secret: She's a vampire.
Based on the popular CW TV show inspired by the bestselling novels, Stefan's Siaries reveals what really happened between Stefan, Damon, and Katherine - and how the Vampire Diaries love triangle began.
I've been meaning to read this for a while. I love the Vampire Diaries, and it will be awesome to read Stefan's point-of-view.
