Lots of new-to-me titles. Isn't great to have co-workers who share. Have a great week, Selena.

Wally Lamb is great--She's Come Undone is one of my favorite coming of age stories. Enjoy!

Apologies to An Apple is such an interesting title. I think the last thing I got was The Carnivore by Mark Sinnet.

Great list!

I'm really in the mood for a good romance today, so Scandal Becomes Her sounds great!

I read SHE'S COME UNDONE years ago.. I think I was a junior in highschool. That is how long ago it was. I couldn't put it down at the time. I am going to have to reread it! It's been so long, I have completely forgotten what it was about!
