You have a lot of great books on here. I'm also a huge fan of James Patterson. I will be reading a lot of his books this time around as well.

Good Luck.

Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite writers. I'll be interested to know what you think of her books. Do you plan on posting reviews?

What did you think of The Hour I First Believed? I'm thinking about reading it.

I really did enjoy reading it. I was a bit worried at first because of the reference to Columbine but I believe the author did an amazing job with what was included. It wasn't a book about the tragedy of Columbine but rather what they did in the face of tragedy.

Let me know what you thing about it if you read it.
