Hes GoneDeb Caletti



  1. It is really unfair to increase my to-read list. After looking over the synopsis of Caletti’s books I’m sure I would have loved to have found them when i was sixteen. Almost fifty will need to suffice.

  2. Who knew we’re the same age, DaNae? :) (Depending on exactly what you mean by “almost.”) Maybe we can meet up at ALA Annual….

    I’m kind of trying to avoid the descriptions of the books, because my TBR pile is way unmanageable. Though I know I’d been wanting to read some of her books….

  3. I’ve only read one of her books, but I really loved it. I keep meaning to go back and read more of her stuff, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet.

  4. @Sondy, by almost, meaning this June. Alas, the next ALA event I have a chance of attending is Las Vegas, as it is a driveable distance. At some point our little club needs to find a clubhouse.
