  1. Wow, liking 48 out of 50 books is a pretty great record. Congrats on meeting (and exceeding) your goal!

    I see Concord Hill on your list...I'm in the middle of the Caroline series right now. None of the spinoffs are as great as Laura's, of course, but it's nice to get kind of close.

    I love Warm Bodies, btw.

    1. I have two books left to go in the Caroline Series and then I have finished the series. It is a pretty great record to like 48 of now 52 books. I'm hoping to keep loving the books I read.
