Not much we didn't see coming. Frankie ... Hunger Games ... Shannon Hale ...

I must say I loved The London Eye Mystery. Great choice. Been meaning to write a review, but then I get sidetracked, remembering all Dowd's descriptions of the Tube, which makes me think of riding the Metro in Kiev, and how much I loved loved loved that, and also how much I want to fly to London right this very minute. Will that suffice?

I wasn't impressed by The Hunger Games, but I didn't think it wasn't going to win a Cybil. That was obvious.

It's definitely a crowd favorite! But I have to say I enjoyed it a lot, too.

Thanks for stopping by, Maya.
