Blind Date With A Book

 

Looking for something fun to do tonight? How about letting us “set you up” on a blind date. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we are setting young adult book lovers up on blind dates with books from our YA collection. Since it is a blind date, you will not know the genre, title, plot, or anything else for that matter until you take the book home. Read it, and give it a chance to make an impression. The dating will start on Saturday February 2nd and end on February 14th. If you fill a short survey out about your date and turn it in, you will get a sweet treat. It’s fast, easy, and fun! The great thing is, if you don’t like the book or it turned out to be “not the one” you can always return it and exchange it for another.  You won’t hurt our or it’s feelings.  Take a chance, and have fun!

Shocking!!!

The time has finally come; the end of one of my favorite series. Sure it was a trilogy, but it was just so darn fun! The characters, the setting, the action, the plot; every element about the story was amazing. It was a great way to finish the series. Alan Cumming is once again narrating the story, and once again he does an outstanding job.

Neither teen knows all of the other's secrets, but they have become friends.
