I've had this on my kindle forever! I kept putting it off because it's so long, so thanks for getting me to read it. I think I have only seen one person give it less than 5 stars, and she gave it 4! I'm excited to start reading it, and I'm doing it as soon as I make some more progress on my TBR Twins book.
