25 is probably safe; I've been reading a lot of short story anthologies lately, and those take a while since I read and try to spend time analyzing the story afterward. I'm also using audio books on the drive into work, so I'll be "reading" longer works then.

Not too bad. Says YA, but it feels much younger. Maybe it's beginner YA, if there is such a thing.

Audio again. Thank goodness for audio or I'd never have the chance to read anymore.

This is the first I've read of Ms. Hoag's work. Her characters are incredibly human, with their own flaws and problems, and the story she tells is one horrible event after another, but the strength of character in surviving what happened... will definiately be looking for more of her books.

I know Koontz often ventures into horror but this one was nightmare producing creepy. *shiver* I can't imagine even reading this on audio - thank goodness it was a paperback.

Audio again. Interesting character. I wasn't sure I liked the actor's voice at first or if it was just his portrayal of the character. It was a good story, and of course I loved the inclusion of the german shepards.

Another audio. Very much enjoyed this one - the character was interestly rough around the edges yet sympathetic enough that I liked her spunk.

I really enjoy her writing! She's a great person, too -- I've had the pleasure of hearing her on various panels at Orycon - the annual Oregon SF convention.

Happy reading!

If ever there was a series I should have and could have written, it's the Rainbow Fairies. I just read the first book to my daughter and it's obvious that if I don't continue, I'll be the worst mother EVER. So. There will be many more. Thank you Daisy Meadows.
