I've always loved the smell and feel for books. When I was a teen, I would go to the library practically every day after school and on the weekends. For me, there was nothing greater then getting a stack of books and reading through all of them in a couple of days. By the time I hit college I could make it through 2 or 3 books a day.
Age 5: As boring as they are, I loved the Dick and Jane books. Reading wasn't easy for me when I was younger, and these books gave me the confidence to keep trying.
Age 11: Ahh, the days of Babysitter's Club, and Sweet Valley High. They dominated my bookshelf, but my true favorite was Anne of Green Gables. Anne with an 'e' was so spunky and I was convinced that I needed to dye my hair bright red and marry Gilbert.
Age 15: This is when I discovered VC Andrews. I spent spring break that year lying on the couch, reading through two of her seven series. After that I bought every other series published under her name. About a year later, I discovered the pattern to her stories and moved on before I grew to hate the repetitiveness.
Age 20: At this age I had immersed myself in the romance category, and it's still my favorite genre. There's something to be said about love and happy endings. My shelf was filled with a variety of romance novels, although it was, and still is, heavily dominated by Diana Palmer, Linda Howard, and Lori Foster. If Twilight and The Hunger Games series had been around I'm sure they would have been on my shelf as well.
Thank you for this book list! I remember the days of the BSC well. =)

There are defining moments in life when everything changes. For Dani Mays, it was the day she witnessed her father kill her brother. Now seventeen years-old, she still hasn't put it behind her.
After Jace's death, she bounced between her alcoholic mother and foster homes, until she found a permanent place. And a reason to stay: Reece Tyler. He's her best friend, yet Dani wants more from Reece.
Faced with possibly losing Reece, Dani struggles to define his place in her life and escape the memories of her brother's death and the influence it has over her choices. Even as she weaves the pieces of her heart back together, the past becomes more than a memory when a former foster brother reappears and Dani begins receiving threatening phone calls.
