Hope you're feeling better. Starting off the new year under the weather is awful.

That's an ambitious list of books to read. My list would be incomplete, but would include a lot of mysteries in the endless search for enligthenment on how to off people with style. (Kind of a sick thought there.)

Birthday time is nearing. I better get my favorite meal or I'll have to find a creative way to... nope, can't give away plot yet.

Write on!

Carole - Oh definitely! I think I may be hooked on Juno books if they all read like yours and Sylvia's! :-D

Rick - Thanks! I'm getting better now. I don't feel like I'm going to collapse when I lean over haha.

Yeah, I'm still catching up on 07's before all the '08s start shipping in. I'm already hooked on one series and Book 2 comes out this summer so I have some time! hehe.

I hope your day was awesome! As always, I'm left hanging in anticipation. :-)

Tempest Knight - #1 is definitely my fave for last year. Such awesome work. I'm a Zinnia fan for life! I can't wait to get to the other ones. I keep hearing awesome things about The Vampire Shrink and Caridad Pineiro's work!

Book Review ~ Who R U Really? ~ A Highly Recommended Read

Who R U Really? by Margo Kelly

Thea's overprotective parents are driving her insane. They invade her privacy, ask too many questions, and restrict her online time so severely that Thea feels she has no life at all. When she discovers a new role-playing game online, Thea breaks the rules by staying up late to play. She's living a double life: on one hand, the obedient daughter; on the other, a girl slipping deeper into darkness. In the world of the game, Thea falls under the spell of Kit, an older boy whose smarts and savvy can't defeat his loneliness and near-suicidal despair. As Kit draws soft-hearted Thea into his drama, she creates a full plate of cover stories for her parents and then even her friends.

Soon, Thea is all alone in the dark world with Kit, who worries her more and more, but also seems to be the only person who really "gets" her. Is he frightening, the way he seems sometimes, or only terribly sad? Should Thea fear Kit, or pity him? And now, Kit wan…
