  • Thanks for sharing your list with us! You are a prolific reader! I guess you would have to be to be a book blogger. A quick question: Have you read the Vampire Diary Series? What are your thoughts?

  • Why yes I have read the Vampire Diaries series! I read them over and over again while I was in High School because I wanted so desperately to be Elena, who by the way, is supposed to be a blond! As always, the books are better and more magical than the shows. But maybe I’m biased because L.J. Smith’s vampire world takes me back to the good old days. I heard a rumor that the Secret Circle, another series by L.J. Smith that dates back to the early 90s, is going to be the next big WB hit series.

  • Hi, I am reading a trilogy by Linda Francis Lee. You might have read them, they were written early 2000. They are titled:
    1. Suddenly Sexy
    2. Sinfully Sexy
    3. Simply Sexy
    Not only are they really good romantic reads, the covers of each book when put next to eachother are a puzzle forming a woman. I really was impressed by this concept and don’t know of it being done before. As you and others like the cover art of books, I too like it and many times it is what grabs my attention to pick up the book and decide to read it! If by chance you haven’t read these books, I thought I would pass this info along. Would like to hear your take of my post. Thanks, Maria.

  • OMGOsh! I just finished “Disappearance at Devil’s Rock” and Love it! Thanks for suggesting it to me! It kept me reading past my bedtime and beyond. I loved how the characters weave in and out…Natalie
