reading and wishing

My name is Gaby, I'm 21 and from Miami. I'm an english major who loves to read (duh!)

Currently reading

The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Lauren Oliver
The Name of the Star - Maureen Johnson This is more like 3.5 stars. I love the story and the plot, not so much the execution of it. Maureen Johnson has all these books with great ideas but writing that doesn't blow me away. Her main characters were a bit bland (I didn't care for the "love" interest, her main female characters are typically a bit annoying) but the history about jack the ripper was really interesting and I liked the concept of a group of ghost buster teenagers. I'm looking forward to the second part, but I wish her writing has a little less mediocre (because the plots she comes up with rock!)
