    I know! Isn't she awesome? I finished Twilight about a day ago and thought it was the best book I have ever read. I also sent her an e-mail today and got a reply! I am so excited about that. I hear she's on this site here and there too.

    One of my newest fave authors: Christopher Moore. The guy is completely irreverent, sarcastic, and absolutely hilarious! I've read his L.A.M.B and am reading his newest, A Dirty Job and I think I'm in love. I'll definitely have to catch up on the in-between books.

    I agree - John Irving is amazing. Hotel New Hampshire is one of my favourite novels of all time. Have you read his latest novel, Until I Find You, yet? I keep meaning to pick it up but it's so big, I'm afraid I might injure myself while reading it. Better wait for the paperback.
