Delirium by Lauren Oliver
What I love the most about this book is the amount of poetic language it contains. I'm sad that I have less time to read now because I really want to know what happens!
Please Understand Me II by David Keirsey
I'm reading this book because Jeff Gerke recommends it (in his book Plot Versus Character) for finding your character's core personality and developing that personality further. It talks about the four personality types included in the Myers-Briggs test. I've also always loved all things psychology, so I find it extremely interesting.
A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein
Still reading a few of these poems each night! To really enjoy poetry I have to read it out loud, and that takes quite a bit longer.
And of course, there are the teaching books:
A Different Mirror For Young People by Ronald Takaki
Black Ants and Buddhists by Mary Cowhey
The Writing Workshop by Katie Wood Ray
