Over the past year or so, many of you have sent me secret notes on the side to let me know that you've read the "Twilight" series. I think "read" is a pretty delicate term for the way in which you read the books - quickly, in secret, and using every free moment you had available. The "angel food cake of books" one of you told me. And now that I'm halfway through the second in the series, I can say in all honesty that I agree with you completely. Who knew that a teenage vampire book would be so enjoyable?
Anyway, now that I've publicly confessed, I just wanted to tell you that I've taken your recommendation and am working my way through the series. What else should we be reading? Any other vampire series we might enjoy? Teenage angst that we should literarily relive? Did I just make that word up? Have I turned into the bookclub version of W?
Tell me what I should be reading. Please be sure to add the title, author's name, and a brief description of the book, your thoughts and comments.
Have you finished reading Lottery? If you finished it long ago (as I did), do you remember what you thought of the book? If the answer to either question "yes", give the book your final rating. What did you think? Did you like it? What did you think of the style, turn of events, characters?
