      Kathy – thanks! My library doesn’t have it, so I’ll have to wait a bit. :(

    My brain is going to explode if they do end up making The Chaos Trilogy. That could go very good or very bad (similar to Life of Pi). I’m also pretty excited about The Husband’s Secret. Now THAT one I can totally see happening. After all these reviews of Help for the Haunted, I’ve added it to my wish list.

  3. Yes, The Twenty Stages of Reading is great!

    Time between us looks really good…I have it on my wishlist too and I loved The Testing despite it being so similar to The Hunger Games!

    I didn’t know they were making Husband’s Secret into a movie — It should be good.
