Stephen King is so much more than 'one of those' Horror writers. Many don't know this, but he has meangad to make a supernatural connection between most of his books, tying them all together like a tapestry. The more books you read, the more you see this happening, particularly if you read The Dark Tower books. Utter coolness.**Semi-spoiler alert**I have just finished reading: Savvy (Ingrid Law) Unique, great voice, heavy on similies (BUT if you want to see how the perfect simile can paint an instant and memorable image, this is a great book to read) I really enjoyed it, and I hope she writes a sequel.Tattoo (Jennifer Lynn Barnes) First few chapters were waaaay too fluffy, but the rest was pretty awesome and worth reading. Great characters.Golden(Barnes) Great book, great characters (except for Grandma) great plot...really liked this one.Platinum (Barnes) Sequel to Golden, and a completely different feel to this book. I found myself skimming and I couldn't get close to the main character because she didn't 'need' or 'want to need' anyone, and she had a hard outlook on life to some degree. Unfortunately I felt there was an imbalance here--too much internal and not nearly enough action.A Curse as Dark as Gold (Elizabeth C. Bunce) I really enjoyed this one. Setting & characters were well drawn, excellent plot--READ THIS BOOK. The Humming of Numbers (Joni Sensel) This book was very unique, and I mostly enjoyed it. There was one point where the MC's actions were so far out of character that it created some distance for me and it was a bit religion-heavy in the end, but overall worth reading. I liked the whole number thing--very imaginative.Something to Blog About (Shana Norris) Really enjoyed this one!! This one is totally worth reading. My only niggle was how one character (not the MC) does something really bad and isn't made to pay for it, nor does she seem to lose standing in the eyes of those hurt by it (other than the MC). I felt dissatisfied with that, but the rest was fantastic for this type of book and age group.
