So I am 23 years old and have been over the whole young adult high school books since about a year after I graduated. So there has been a lull in books I was interested in reading, and I really didn't know where to state at all. At my office we have a book drop box, where you bring in books, take books, return or don't, it doesn't matter, but we all share. Well I decided to pick up a book (judge it by its cover "HA" "HA") and give it a try. (psst...I did happen to read the back as well.) Little did I know that the books was one in the middle of the series, although it did not read as if it were one. I love those kind of books; they can stand alone or you can read them in order. The new author I like is Susan Mallery, and the book series is Fool's Gold.
Here is the link to her site.
link so you can see all the books in the series.
I loved book #7 Summer Days. I just bought #1 on my nook!
PS if anyone wants to be nook friends let me know. I don't currently have lend-able books, but I am still building my collection.
