"Georgia on My Mind"

(Ray Charles, anyone?)
(please tell me u know that song???
A classic I tell you! A classic!)
My Read o' the Week:
Fallen by Kate Lauren
If u can't get enough of that whole
eternally tortured love thang,
this one's for you!
(i mock, yet stayed up muy last night...)
FYI: Wider audience appeal than her last book,
The Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove.
I give it 3.5-4.0 / 5 stars --
& I'm a harsh critic!
Oh, and I am sooo gonna make it to Savannah, GA 1 day!

FYI: (Finally!) One HOT Read!

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margie Stohl
1 of the latest installments to
the modern gothic/tortured romance genre--
and this time it's a good one.
I've got the sleep deprivation to prove it!
Note: the HOLD list is GROWING,
So, GET ON IT! :)

Top Picks: 2009
Mine, that is, but feel free to cast your vote!
I'd love to read those that I've missed!!!

Is It Just Me?

Or, is there simply 5 not-so-hotso books
published per 1 wowzer?
Still sadly waiting to be blown away...! :(
Nevertheless, a few recent reads (in order of enjoyment!):

1. Rosie & Skate by Beth Ann Bauman (yes, I really, really liked this one!)

2. Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler (better than avg chick lit)

3. Breathless by Jessica Warman (quite interesting)

4. Viola in Reel Life by Andriana Trigani (cute & artsy)

5. Girl to the Core by Stacey Goldblatt (yep, it's girly!)

6. Betrayal of Natalie Hargrove by Lauren Kate (4 older readers!)

7. Swoon by Nina Malkin (again, 4 older readers!)

8. The Seven Rays by Jessica Bendinger (have a feeling that others' will like more than I...)

Up Next: Beautiful Creatures; The Uninvited; Fallen; & Once Was Lost

I'll keep you posted...
