Karol | 1776 comments Kelly, I really liked "Marley", too. I'm tempted to see the movie - are you a movie goer?

Kelly Lamb (hk10) | 18 comments After reading the book, I'm not so sure I will want to see the movie...so emotional!! haha. I might be tempted though.


message 4: by Merri (new)

Merri Kelly- I am about 1/2 way through Twilight- I am reading it just to see what all the media hype is about! So far so good- an easy read.


message 5: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Lamb (hk10) | 18 comments Merri, I was reading it for the same reason...haha! I got drawn in pretty quickly though. Definitely made me curious to read the others in the series (I'm working on New Moon now).

I've been meaning to read this book since I got the ARC last year, but never got around to it. How was it?


message 24: by Kelly (new)

Kelly Lamb (hk10) | 18 comments Ahrcadia, I really enjoyed it. I was surprised because I don't read a ton of non-fic, but I won it through goodreads and gave it a try. You can read through my GR review if you want, I gave it 4 stars.
