    1. Hi Diane! Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. It was tough narrowing down my top 10 favorite books for 2012, there were so many good ones that I had read.

      I stopped by and followed your site!

      Happy New Year!

  2. I love anything Suzanne Jenkins writes, amazing writing and great characters. Reading Family Dynamics right now.

    On the Island was also a favorite of mine, it was my first kindle purchase as well as Pam of Babylon.

    Happy 2013!

    1. Hi! Thank you for stopping by! I so agree with you about Suzanne. She creates simply amazing stories!

      Happy New Year! :)

  3. I am on the last book of the Pam of Babylon series, Family Dynamics. I love her series so much and felt like I was right there with them. I hate to see it end but all good things must come to an end at some point and this series was wonderful and Family Dynamics is just as good as I thought it would be. I love all of her books and will start the Greeks series next. I agree with you that it is the best series of 2012. Great reading.

    1. Thank you for stopping by! I love this series and will hate to see it end. I will be starting the Greeks series too. :)
