YA Indie Carnival: Whatchya Readin?

For this week of the YA Indie Carnival, we're supposed to talk about three indie books that we're reading.

*looks sheepish* I don't have three. :(

Okay, before you slay me completely, let me explain. I only started reading regularly about two years ago. Then I decided to write a book and my reading took a back seat. Now I read about as often as I write, so there's a better balance. But because I went so many years watching movies instead of reading books, there are a gajillion awesome books out there that I haven't read. I have a TBR pile that touches the ceiling, so I don't really have to *search* for something to read.

So the only indie books I've read have been because of a connection to the author, or upon recommendation from someone I know. And when I say "indie" I am talking small-press as well (since one I know in particular uses Createspace to publish).

I've read Elizabeth Isaac's Light of Asteria, Jessica Degarmo's How to Meet a Guy at the Supermarket, and Molly Ringle's What Scotland Taught Me.

But in the spirit of the carnival, I have downloaded Warriors of the Cross by our very own T.R. Graves.

So, just because I haven't read much indie doesn't mean I don't want to or that I won't!
