It's been awhile since I talked about what I'm reading, mostly because I haven't read anything lately that blew me away. But that's recently changed as I picked up Shelter by Harlan Coben. Now Harlan's other Myron Bolitar series is one of my favorites. I love his cast of characters, especially Win.
The last book in the series, Live Wire didn't disappoint. We were introduced to Mickey Bolitar, Myron's nephew. Now I am not a YA reader. In fact, it's been a really, really, really long time since I was even mistaken for a young adult. However, I picked up Shelter (Mickey's story) to see how Harlan made the switch to YA. Damn how I wished I had books like this when I was a pre/teen. Yeah, Judy Bloom rocks and all, and I learned how to increase my breast size, but Shelter offers so much more. The story is engaging. Mickey is a true hero with Myron's wit and charm. The stakes are high. No sparkly vampires to be seen.
Any other Coben fans reading Shelter? How about other YA series, anything out there I should pick up next?
