I agree. Finished it yesterday and loved it.

Now reading "Taking Chances". Part way through and the author seems to be a major fan of Beautiful Disaster.  :P

I was thinking of starting Taking Chances next.  How do you like it so far?

Not even half way through, and I see shades of Thoughtless too... If you are looking for something really original dont bother. If you are a major fan of BD, take a chance. Shall be able to let you know more once I am done with it.

I just got done reading On Dublin Street. Wow that was great, totally didnt expect it
to be that good. I love her YA books, but this was so so different and REAL. It
made me laugh out loud and cry like a baby. Loved it!!!

So I was going to read Angelfall, but I've read all of Samantha Young's new book and I think I'll read it instead now.

I am re-reading the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. I constantly read many times over my fave series by fave authors. I just read A Fault With Our Stars by a recommendation from another reader from this site which I enjoyed
“Dying is overrated. Human sentimentality has twisted it into the ultimate act of love. Biggest load of bullshit in the world. Dying for someone isn't the hard thing. The man that dies escapes. Plain and simple. Game over. End of pain...Try living for someone. Through it all-good, bad, thick, thin,

I'm in the middle of reading the debut novel "Hidden" by Kendra Elliot suggested by my best friend who just finished Kendra's second book Chilled.  Hooked pretty quick on this author.  Had me engaged and quickly turning e-pages right from the beginning.   :bravo_2:

How much of an impact can an animal have? How many lives can one cat touch? How is it possible for an abandoned kitten to transform a small library, save a classic American town, and eventually become famous around the world? You can't even begin to answer those questions until you hear the charming story of Dewey Readmore Books, the beloved library cat of Spencer, Iowa.

I needed some light fun reading so Dewey - The Small Town Library Cat by Vicki Myron is tonight's adventure. 

Dewey's story starts in the worst possible way. Only a few weeks old, on the coldest night of the year, he was stuffed into the returned book slot at the Spencer Public Library. He was found the next morning by library director, Vicki Myron, a single mother who had survived the loss of her family farm, a breast cancer scare, and an alcoholic husband. Dewey won her heart, and the hearts of the staff, by pulling himself up and hobbling on frostbitten feet to nudge each of them in a gesture of thanks and love. For the next nineteen years, he never stopped charming the people of Spencer with his enthusiasm, warmth, humility, (for a cat) and, above all, his sixth sense about who needed him most.

As his fame grew from town to town, then state to state, and finally, amazingly, worldwide, Dewey became more than just a friend; he became a source of pride for an extraordinary Heartland farming town pulling its way slowly back from the greatest crisis in its long history.

Im reading manga, currently on chapter 31 of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad

and The Hobbit.
Wrath to Butch: That's you. You shall be called the Black Dagger warrior Dhestroyer....
Rhage: But you'll always be Butch to us, as well as hard-ass. Smart-ass. Royal pain in the ass... I think as long as there's an ASS in there, it'll be accurate.

I am reading the books by Jana DeLeon.  Just finished Trouble in Mudbug and starting Mischief in Mudbug.  The first book is free on Amazon and the next two are on Tuebl.  There is another Mudbug one on Amazon which I will get when I finish these.  The author writes like Janet Evanovich and these books are hilarious so far.

I'm reading Kirsten Ashley's Mystery Man. I'm on the baby pages, so I'm not yet sure if I'll love Hank as much as I'm in love with Lee from Rock Chick.
I finally get a bouquet and it's a goodbye present. That's depressing.
