Ah, from now on I'm probably just going to have to use the library to get the ones I don't have.
I don't have as much money as I used to, though I will hopefully continue to get all of her books.

I think my favorite so far is probably either My Sister's Keeper or Nineteen Minutes.
I actually didn't love Cara as a character in Lone Wolf, which is partly why I didn't love love love that one.
But at the same time, it's okay because I love love love Edward from that one as well.

Yeah, I know it's around here somewhere I'm just not sure where. (I mean Songs of the Humpback Whale)

What about you, do you have a favorite?

I've actually gotten most of the books I own from thrift stores, usually like, $1.50 ea. The most expensive thrift store ones were $6...

I really loved Cara as a character in Lone Wolf actually.

I quite enjoyed Vanishing Acts and I really enjoyed Nineteen Minutes too. If I had to pick a favorite; I realllllly wouldn't be able to choose between Handle With Care and Sing You Home.

I really want to read SofHW. But I can't seem to have any luck finding it in thrift stores anywhere and me and Barnes and Noble have a love hate relationship.

Ah that's cool.
Usually I buy them from like Barnes and Noble or Borders (before they went bankrupt).
Now I either use my library card or kindle.
Though, I just went to put The Storyteller on hold at the library.
Then decided against it when I found out that I would be 88th in line.

I liked her at the start and the end, but somewhere in the middle she was kind of annoying me.
Maybe it's just that I really enjoyed Edward.

Ah, I also really enjoyed Perfect Match.
It had what's his name from Nineteen Minutes in it.
Well, it had him in it before Nineteen Minutes was written, but that's beside the point.

I have another suggestion for you. Mind Games by Kiersten White.
Also, I read the first few chapters of Mila 2.0 by Debra Dirza and holy crap it is amazing so far. I can't wait to get to actually read it when it is released in two weeks.
