Hi Shannon!

Welcome to Book Blogs! I also don't normally read books twice. If you are looking for a good book recommendation I highly suggest A Fraction of the Whole by Steve Toltz. I'm not sure what your taste is, but it's hilarious, intelligent, absurd, and poignant all at the same time :) When you get a chance come visit me at
