You read the Fug Girls' book! Was it good? I love that website.

The Fug Girls' book is fabulous! It's so so funny. I highly recommend it.

78. The White Queen by Phillippa Gregory
When this book started out, I did not enjoy it as much as her others. But then it picked up like crazy and I could not put it down. It inspired me to learn more about the "princes in the Tower", and I can't wait for the next book of this series.

79. A Body to Die For by Kate White
A fun, light book with a great twist ending. Far superior to her other books I've read.

80. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
I actually read this book in less than half a day. I absolutely couldn't put it down, and when I wasn't reading it I was thinking about it. This series has me so emotionally involved I had to physically stop myself from flipping ahead. By far one of the best books I have ever read. I cannot wait for the next book in this incredible series.

81. Murder in Volume by D.R. Meredith
Merely "meh". Characters were not well-developed, and often acted in ways that seemed abrupt and out of character, and the writing style was far too frequently cliched and/or over the top.

82. The Cat Who Went into the Closet by Lillian Jackson Braun
A fun, quick, light read. I find her books enjoyable and fun, but nothing really special.

83. Murder in a Mummy Case by K.K. Beck
I found myself really enjoying this book, possibly enough to grab the first one in the series. The setting and characters were really fun, though I did find the end got wrapped up a little too conveniently for my tastes. But still, a really fun quick read.

84. The Cat Who Came to Breakfast by Lillian Jackson Braun
I'm realizing as I read more and more of these that they are a real comfort book. You know nothing bad is going to happen to the main characters, and things will get resolved in the end. That makes them really great, fun books, at least to me, and special in their own right.

85. Death of a Mystery Writer by Robert Barnard
A good book, with interesting characters and writing style. Could see myself reading more of his work someday in the future.

86. The Cat Who Wasn't There by Lillian Jackson Braun
Not one of her best by far, but got good at the end.

87. The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold
A brutal read, but also one I couldn't put down. Her writing style and characters are incredible.

88. Standoff by Sandra Brown
A quick, engrossing read. Her books are always suspenseful, and full of characters you get invested in. Towards the end, I couldn't put it down.

89. Seasons of the Machete by James Patterson
Definitely not his best work-all over the place and confusing. Still, interesting enough to make me finish it.

90. Southern Ghost by Carolyn G. Hart
Great characters, interesting solution.

91. The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
I didn't love this like I loved Angels and Demons and The DaVinci Code but I still really liked this. There was a great twist in there I never saw coming, which just made the book even better.

92. Crooked House by Agatha Christie
Another great book of hers, with a fabulous twist ending I never saw coming.

93. Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
One of the best books I have ever read. I read it in one day, and when I wasn't reading it (only when I wasn't able to be thanks to school) I was thinking about it and how much I wanted to be reading it. I almost completely missed my train stop I was so engrossed in this book.

94. Hollywood Urban Legends by Richard Roeper
I loved this! Just really fun, and really interesting. I'm getting his other urban legends book today.

95. Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich
Though this one was a little too ridiculous for my tastes, it was hilarious, and really fun to read. I prefer the regular books in this series, as opposed to these between-the-numbers ones, but all the books are great.

96. Urban Legends by Richard Roeper
I love his urban legends books!!! I just found out that he did another one about the 21st century, and I can't wait to get it from the library. I've read the other two in a day each, they're so addicting.

97. Julie and Julia by Julie Powell
Not as good as I hoped, but still fun, and very interesting.

98. Debunked by Richard Roeper
Another really fun, interesting, informative book of his. I preferred the urban legends ones, but still really enjoyed this one as well.

99. The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey
Even though this wasn't a traditional mystery, I really enjoyed it. It was so interesting to read a fictional mystery about the Princes in the Tower. This book made me want to find more fictional books about the subject, and to read more Josephine Tey work.

Still Life by Louise Penny
I am completely hooked on this incredible series. The writing style, the characters, the relationships, the mystery-these are the perfect cozies.

101. A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny
Another incredible one. I love the conspiracy/secrets thread now being woven through.
