    • What we have here, Gem Stone, is a serious generation gap. 😀 I read the Vampire Diaries, too, or at least the first of them. (I leaned more toward Vampire Academy, I’m afraid.) But I was somewhere around 68 or so when I read both series. So I can’t say they are from my youth, though they do still reside on my bookshelves. 😀

      Books from my earlier years included The Black Stallion Series, Lassie Come Home, and all of the Mary Poppins books. Books from when I was 12 or so would have included Atlas Shrugged, On the Beach, Ol’ Yeller, and Bang the Drum Slowly. . Also, when I was twelve, I discovered my favorite writer of all time, Daphne du Maurier, and her stunningly beautiful book, Rebecca. Plus Brarn Stoker’s Dracula, which is why I love vampire stories until this very day, and why I segued into Urban Fantasy a few years ago, where vampires aren’t the only things going bump in the night. 😀 Some of these books, I still have on my shelves, and a few of them are just as compelling as they were when I first read them.

      Somewhere around 18 to 20, it was The Bell Jar, The Collector, Something Wicked This Way Comes, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Ship of Fools, A Clockwork Orange, Silent Spring, The Spy Who Loved Me, The Prize, Seven Days in May . . . oh, THAT was a good period for reading. 😀

      Just think, in another 50 years or so, you’ll have a list this long, too. And when you remember it, they will ALL seem like part of your youth, because like me, it will seem like just yesterday that you were a sweet, young thing! 😀 Good to have you here tonight, to give me an excuse to remember some very good reads from over the decades.

    • Well, hi there, Patty! Good to see you. Hope you’ll enjoy Finding Hunter. Hunter Painter is almost my favorite character. (He gets beat out by Rabbit.) I’m currently getting ready to start the edit of Harbinger, Wake-Robin Ridge Book 3. It’s about the legend of the black dog, known in the Appalachians as Ol’ Shuck. He’s considered to be a harbinger of death, so you don’t want to find him on your front porch. 😀
      Hope all is well with you.
