Joy This is my first time participating in this group! I usually am part of the 75 book challenge group and have done it for 4 years now, but I think with a toddler it is time to take my challenge down a few books. So only shootin' for 60 next year! (A page goal of 18000.)

5/5 stars. this was a short, fun one, only 100 pages. I read it a few years back so this is a re-read, but I was in the mood for a short one to kick off the New Year...I'm also reading the 1141 page Uncut version of "The Stand", so needed to get a short fun one in there!

Joy #4- Pretty Little Liars
Pretty Little Liars (Pretty Little Liars, #1) by Sara Shepard
4/5 stars

I have been wondering what the hype is all about with these books, and I have never seen the TV show, but I am one of those who would rather read a story than watch it. I liked it, I have the first 4 books in the series, and at this point I am not sure if I like this enough to buy anymore after that, but we will see!

Alison (alisonm23) | 175 comments I just finished read Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac. It's a young adult novel, but since we seem to have similar taste in books, I thought I would recommend it to you. The author is Gabrielle Zevin.
Hope things are going well for you!

Alison (alisonm23) | 175 comments I probably will extend my goal. I made myself read more this school year. I've had some school years that I didn't read at all. But, summer is here, so that means more reading time! Yeah!
