I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

The Vinyl Princess

The Vinyl Princess - Yvonne Prinz I really liked this one. I couldn't help it, no matter how the author described Allie, somehow I pictured her as Watts from Some Kind of Wonderful. She even had some of the same attitude.

I really liked that this was more than just a romance. So many things happen in this, all of it feeling well connected to the story. I really hadn't seen a few things coming, like things with Mystery Guy. This was more of a coming of age story than a romance, and I think the novel was better for it. I liked seeing Allie and her growing blog. I liked seeing her deal with things that would have been hard on anyone. I just really enjoyed her story.

I really liked the setting of this. The record store, the feel of neighborhood. It didn't feel like I was reading a book that was just like a ton of others I have read.
