I was never one that was really into young adult novels until the Twilight series.  It was then that I became one of those thirty-something year old adults that read the books late into the wee morning hours.  I'm not ashamed to say that I love the book series and can't wait until my daughter is old enough to read them with me.

Dont Go

Don’t Go by Lisa Scottoline Audiobook Review

Anytime I begin a book, it is important to me that it grabs me right from the start.  Since I had never read a Lisa Scottoline book, I wasn't sure what to expect in her writing.  It didn't take her longer than the first chapter with Don't Go to create a book that I knew I couldn't put down. Actually, I wasn't reading, I was listening to the book on audio.  That has become one of my favorite … [Read more...]
