I've never read Ellen Hopkins' novels in verse, but I'll be getting immersed. I have Perfect, a YA novel, as an audiobook, and her first adult novel Triangles to read in this upcoming month.
Falling Together, and am quite intrigued of A Thousand Lives: The Untold Story of Hope, Deception, and Survival at Jonestown, which is loaded on my Kindle.
I also hope to participate in the Maud Hart Lovelace challenge at A Library is a Hospital for the Mind (one of the best blog names ever!!). It's good timing, because the next book in the Mother-Daughter Bookclub series Home for the Holidays features Betsy-Tacy (and that will be mine and Amanda's next read-aloud)! I read some of the younger books I think, and I know Amanda read one or two, so at the author Heather Vogel Frederick's suggestion as the best tie-in to the new book, I will for sure read Betsy in Spite of Herself.
