Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

The Westing Game

The Westing Game - This is one of my FAVORITE books, and I tend to reread it every year or so. [...] It’s still just as good a book as the first time I read it way back when. I’ve read it so many times that the answer to the mystery is ingrained into my memory, I can almost quote lines by heart, and I know each and every plot twist by heart. And yet it’s not BORING. I’m still just as entertained reading it now as I was the first time. The characters, the writing, the STORY! All of them are so freakin’ good. If you HAVEN’T read The Westing Game yet, you need to get on it STAT.(This review was originally posted on Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog.)
