Stacks on Stacks on Stacks

Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two. A book lover, music geek who loves the written word. I'll read anything that sounds good to me.

Damn, this book rocked. I'm a huge music geek, so this book definitely appealed to me, even though I'm not the same kind of music geek Allie is. This book went nice and slow, pacing just right and hitting you with twists when you least expect it. Then when you're finally finished with the book you realize "huh, the clues were there the whole time." I loved every moment, savoring them.

Allie is a really cool character. Like I said, we're both music geeks, and also have blogs! Plus we share the same sense of humor. She's very real, and you become attached to her and want her to be happy. I love the journey she goes on, developing little by little and realizing her mistakes, owning up to them. Her coworkers at Bob and Bobs are so eclectic, and you want to know more about them, especially Laz. I feel like Laz has this whole history behind him, and I'd love for there to be a spin-off book all about him. Zach definitely was a wonderful character to fall for. He was charming and quirky, but not overtly so.

Damn, Ms. Prinz is amazing. You can feel her love of music permeating through the novel. She creates these characters you fall in love with, as well as getting you into these artists and albums. She has such a love for what she's writing, you just want to jump on that bandwagon.
