Favorite Line in a Book from Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon


A little romance, a battle between good & evil, and friendship. Top that with hot guys and sword play. What more could you want in a book.

Deranged Homecoming Queen  was not the look for me.

Find the line in the book. Be the first to comment to this post, email, call or see Pat Schwartz at the West Branch with the answer of where is the line and receive a surprise.

One more thing, Destined for Doon is book 2.

As April (Poetry Month) comes to a close I have been thinking about books in verse a lot. Some people love them! Others can’t stand them. Me, I’m on the fence. There are some that make a really good story like The Language Inside by Holly Thompson and others that I just can’t get myself to read the whole way through (even inf they are only 150 pages).  Where do you stand on the idea of books written in verse? Love them? Hate them? OK with some?
