Great list! Twilight and Dewey are both in my TBR. I’ve heard nothing but good things about them.
Have a great day!
Hmm, you must be the first person I’ve heard of who actually liked Where the Red Fern Grows!
I liked Keeping the House.
I picked up KEEPING THE HOUSE on your recommendation, and hope to dig it out of TBR Purgatory this year :-). Happy New Year!
Am I the only one who hasn’t read “Twilight”? 🙂 Maybe I should! Great list
I should have put The Art of Racing in the Rain on my list. I hope Enzo will forgive me.
Can’t wait to read The Art of Racing in the Rain! My book club is waiting for the paperback to come out.
The Art of Racing was in my top 3! i love Enzo!
