Random Reads: Youth in Revolt by C.D. Payne

"Basically it’s a meme where we pick a random book from our shelf to read. I’m on Goodreads so I’m using a combination of the sorting feature and Random.org to pick the book I’m going to read."
Since this meme was mentioned in the first post, I was looking forward to it. I think it's a great and fun new way to pick at least one of the books on my TBR list each month. I am always adding more books, but the list never seems to decrease. So I decided to give this a go! Like Sarah, I also used Goodreads and Random.org to pick my new read. Here's what I got:

I have owned Youth in Revolt since 2010 and I still haven't read it! I am glad I got a book I own this time, because for my first Random Reads post, I got Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen and I didn't read it. I placed a hold at the library, but they never contacted me so I knew they didn't have by the end of the month. This month, I will definitely be reading this book. I am excited. Especially since I also have the movie recorded on my DVR and haven't watched because I haven't read the book. Yay! Want to join in? Check out this month's Random Reads post.


  1. That sucks about your first random reads book not coming in at the library. I haven't had that problem yet, but I'm sure it'll happen for me one of these days! lol

    I saw the Youth in Revolt movie previews and it looks really good. I didn't know it was a book though...sweet! I hope you enjoy it and thanks for participating. :)

  2. Hi! Youth in Revolt was a cool movie. I did not know it was a book. I wish I knew I would of read it first.
    I got a dud for my first "RR" and am happy I got a pretty cool read for this month. I think I am gonna go through my TBR on Goodreads to weed out the duds. Not many of them thankfully!

  3. I use my own shelve on goodreads to make sure I have the books. Although I still haven't read my December one, cause I left it in my hometown...maybe on Easter :P
