Just finished Amazing Grace by Megan Shull. Had heard about it on Ally Carter's blog and decided to go ahead and add it to my already overflowing list of library books to reserve and check out. Loved it! Absolutely loved everything about it. The writing style was so light and hip and fun. The characters were all quirky and unique and so very real. Really, I can't say enough.

I'd like to read Ms. Shull's other books--I really would, but I don't envision myself getting to them anytime soon. This is a total and compute turn-around for me. I used to be the sort of person who discovered a great new author and then bought up or checked out his/her entire backlist. Then I'd sit waiting impatiently for the author's next release. There are still authors that I feel this way about, but these dates, it's pretty irregular for this to happen. And it's not because I didn't love that first discovery from a new author. It's more that I now know what to expect and would like the thrill of 'discovering' someone else.

Since becoming addicted to the magical, enchanted world of blogging, I am discovering so many new authors and great books--I can barely keep up with them. Well, that's just not true. I can't keep up. I'm way behind. But I vow to remember names. And when I decide to take a break from it all and use all my spare time to read, I'll have a whole list of authors to tap into.
