OK, I have a blog post/review swirling in my head about these Eden books by Marilyn Harris (Deb, you MUST read these). I want to draw a comparison to these older, darker oh so much better written novels compared to today's bubblegum as in,

Now, just what muscician, song shall I pick as an example for a better writte *novel*? I'm leaning towards the Beatles' Yesterday but opinions gladly accepted.

ETA: HUGE FACEPALM. I put the wrong link into the post at first. This is the video I wanted to use to draw a comparison.

Deb, if a series is scaring you take a look at a single she wrote called Warrick.

If your trying for annoying bubble gum music then your right on the mark!   Another would be the Archie's Sugar Sugar,  :)

Now this is in my head I really hate you right now.  Going to wash out my head with something I can stand.

I find if you listen to something else right away it helps.  :)  BTW  I like you again.  A little Cat Stevens did the trick. :)
