I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

I am struggling with the star rating on this one. I want to love it because so many people do. This series has a fan club to rival the followers of Justin Bieber. I just couldn't get there. I had to keep going over and over the same parts because I couldn't keep my attention on the story. I don't hate it. But I just couldn't love it. My mom actually read it twice. When she shared that with me I gawped at her in awe and admiration- "How did you manage it TWICE?!," I exclaimed in utter disbelief. I have the second one and I'm going to give it a go over the next couple of weeks. My hope is that now that I am familiar with the characters and have a basic idea of the premise, things will pick up and I will be able to count myself among the masses of adoring fans. So many people can't be wrong... I hope.
