Saturday SOOP: Hot 20 Book Ideas for 2/26/2017

 Sorry for my tardiness readers! Central VA, the place I call home, was wolloped yesterday by a terrific storm that knocked out my internet. It was rough, guys, I barely survived… the boredom. Just kidding! It turned into a perfect night for reading a real-life hardcover novel tucked up in bed, listening to the thunder. It was a good night for a slightly spooky YA novel, “Midnight For Charlie Brown.” I may not be a teenager anymore, but so many Young Adult novels are my go-to way to spend a few hours. They’re not as complex as their more literary cousins, and they usually end happily, but they’re no less engrossing or thought-provoking. 

But enough of my defense of reading books written for people half my age – on to the Hot 20 Book Ideas for February 26, 2017.
