I'm supposed to be reading Still Sucks to Be Me, but I got Glimmerglass in the mail today and I'm already on the 3rd chapter!  It's sure sucked me in...

I loved Willow and thought the ending was great. I love books with a happy ending. I am starting Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins.

Yes I was a big fan of R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike when I was younger too =)

And yes! I love that site! I can't wait for pay day because there's a sweet print I want to buy! I just painted our bedroom so it will match perfectly.....and my boyfriend will just have to deal =)

I just got Endless Summer from the library and the book is THICK - thankfully it's YA, so it should read fast.

Tracie, it's both books in the series in one book - The Boys Next Door and Endless Summer.  I liked both of them!

I've had reading ADD this week.  I've started two books that I haven't made it more than 10 pages.  I am now starting The Cardturner by Louis Sachar.

I really liked Hex Hall.

I'm halfway through Glimmerglass.  It's a good book!

Next up for me is Jekyl Loves Hyde.

I finished The Reckoning and I liked it, but didn't LOVE it like I did the first 2.  It seemed a bit sloppy in the plot, somehow.  Not that I know how to write lol, but I just thought some random things happened too easily and didn't really fit into the plot.  I still liked it though, and was especially happy with the ending.

I'm #1 on the wishlist for Hex Hall so I'm glad to hear it's good, but the line stopped moving! =) I finished Spirit Bound last night and loved it! Hmmm not sure what to start next though..

Kelly - I agree with you on The Reckoning. There was one point that I was so confused I had to re-read some of it, and still was not sure what happened. I did love the series but the third book was not as clear to me towards the end. Please don't let that discourage anyone, because is was still a great series and I love Kelley Armstrong's writing.

Kelly and Debbie, I agree with y'all about the Reckoning.  I didn't like it quite as much as I liked the first two in the series.

I just finished The Cardturner and it was really good.  It's about the card game Bridge, so I don't know if everyone would enjoy it, but I really liked the way the game play was meshed into the story.

I am starting Sisters Red by Jackson Pearce now.

Oh, I love Bridge! I've read other Sachar books and liked them. I'll have to put it on my WL!

Lacy, do you like the Red Pyramid?  I'm listening to it on CD and I love it!  It's a very good audio.
