quality literature: if i stay (where she went)

at some point last january i decided that reading 52 books this year was a worthy goal.  at some point in november i realized that i still had 20 books to read to meet that goal and less than two months to do it in.  i wasn't scared.  i am a bookworm.  i devour books.  last night i stayed up till 2:40a.m. reading this one.  then i stayed in bed till 11:00a.m. this morning finishing the sequel.  today i proudly stand at 49 books read this year.  three more to go and three days to do it.  i'm still not scared, but i may cheat a little.

this is another young adult novel recommended by the librarians at my high school.  it is a beautiful little book (yes, i chose to read it last night because it was the smallest in the stack. don't judge ;).  it's about love, family, music, and life.  very enjoyable.  the sequel was good too, although i had the urge to skim in several places.  the angst was totally understandable, i just wasn't in the mood to read it today.

and now i'm off to see what the next skinniest book in the stack is . . .
