Goodreads Results – Kudos


I can’t believe that I read 153 books this year. How did you do? What were you favorite books? I would love to discover more good books.

diabolicJust finished my first book of 2017 – DIABOLIC.

Have to say, it is an excellent book. Lots of action, twists, friendships, love, enemies, good writing, and a satisfying ending. I can see why it has gotten so much buzz. I was so good.

If you liked Hunger Game, The Red Queen, The Silver Sword, An Ember in the Ashes, or A Torch in the Night, you will love this book.

Some of our book giveaway authors have been nominated for the Cybils Award. Congratulations:

  2. Thanks for these titles. I was just looking for some PB mentor texts.


  3. Happy New Year! I read 57 books last year, but I didn’t include the picture books I read.


  4. We’re counting on you Kathy! Thanks for all the great posts, and looking forward to reading you every day (or nearly every day) in the coming year.
    Here’s to a good one. xo
