  1. Having a long list to choose from is a great idea. You'll surely have an option for every mood and fancy.

  2. Yep! And I might even add more once I visit the library.

  3. Yay, you're in!!! I'm so excited. You've got a huge, and cool, list. I look forward to seeing what you get to. I've been in the mood to re-read Coraline after reading the book about the making of the film recently. It is one of the few books of Gaiman's that I don't have on audio and would love to track down a copy of it. I should check There is a version with him reading it and one with Dawn French reading it and I'd actually love to have them both.

    thanks for joining in again Annie. Love having you and your family as part of it.

  4. Thanks! :) I've been wanting to reread Coraline for a while too.

  5. Hooray!! Rereading Coraline is a great idea :) And I'm happy to see Curse of the Wolf Girl on there too! You should totally read The Stand! It would make your mom happy :p I'm reading it right now and it's REALLY good!

  6. Enjoy your pick, Annie :D The only ones I've read are Coraline and Curse of the Wolf Girl, which are of course awesome.

  7. You'll be reading some for school that will definitely count, too. :) Hope you enjoy, Annie!

  13. Excellent list! I'm a huge fan of L.J. Smith myself having read those when I was growing up. I've got my 14-year-old stepdaughter reading them now, and I'm happy to report that she loves them, too.

    Good luck with RIP V!
