I love to read and I blog about it.


Choker - Elizabeth Woods Excerpt from Linus's Blanket - 3 and 1/2 stars. In addition to heavy doses of teenage angst and parents on the periphery of the action, Choker has a heavy and effective thriller element. The fact that Zoe has a potentially explosive secret, which she isn’t telling, makes for relentless uneasiness as the search for the missing girl intensifies, and the pressure doesn’t let up until the last page. Recommended.
