This summer I started the Wolves of Mercy Falls series, and I LOVE it! I wish I hadn't waited so long to read those books =D


Birgit said...

I've been reading quite a bit this summer, mostly for review and only little "for fun" (as far as the latter goes I finished Dean Koontz' "What the Night Knows" last week - it was great).
