I love the anticipation of finding the “my next favorite author” whenever I wander the library shelves. I enjoy reading the book cover descriptions or sampling the first chapter of a book, as I’m on a quest for the perfect book for me.
I was thrilled last week as I looked through the books on the new book racks at the Central Library and discovered something new.

And what is she going to do about the paparazzi and all those fans? If you want to find out what happens next, read the book. Continue reading “Staff Review: The Stage Dive Novel series”
