Sherrie I picked this one because it seemed to be the lighthearted one. I will email you later today and you can tell me what you would like from the freebie pile.

I just finished reading The Host. I admit that it is the first of her books that I've read. Paranormal is not one of my favorites. Maybe that's why I loved it so much.I did find it a little hard to get into but by page 65, I was totally hooked!!If you haven't read it yet, give it a shot!


MJ I have actually read The Host (my review) and really liked it. I can't wait for the sequel to it.

One of my favorite books by far this year is Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. http://www.perfectchemistrythebook.com/It's a YA book about a boy & girl from very different backgrounds who are thrown together as lab partners. And what starts out as just a star crossed romance turns into a story about how people's lives & goals aren't always how they seem. This is one of the few books since Twilight that really just pulled me in and didn't want to let me go. I was still thinking about it days after I finished it. It's really good. :0)

It not that I don't like the idea of retelling romeo and juilet I feel like I have read a lot of them or seen movies of them often.

Did you ever have one of those books that you just can't get into? By about page 50 or 60 you are ready to toss it back on the bookshelf and grab something new. This was how I started out with All God's Children - the story of the Boskett family. The introduction was a bit challenging to follow but once I got into the "story", I couldn't put the book down. Here is a link for a summary:

This one just didn't interest me. Sorry
