Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Hi Lois!
I'm so glad you're enjoying using librarything. I think it's a wonderful invention and I love being able to look back on the books I've read. Thanks for the all the books you loaned me a few weeks ago. I'm slowing making my way through them. I guess I'll have to loan you the next 6 books in John Marsden's Tomorrow Series. I'm glad you enjoyed the first one so much. The others are just as good!
