The Compulsive Reader: Tis the Season...

Tis the Season...

...for yearning for great 2010 releases, so it seems. I stumbles across one today thanks to a tweet on Twitter that looks absolutely fabulous.

Now, I have to admit, I can be a sucker for bad made-for-TV movies. Especially those of the Hallmark channel variety (yeah, I know, don't ask me why). And one common plot that is overdone quite a bit is the whole heart transplant drama...you know, woman gets a heart transplant and then starts falling in love with the donor's husband or something like that because the HEART made her do it? Total sucker for it. Once again, don't ask me why.

So I was positively THRILLED to discover this book:

In a Heartbeat by Loretta Ellsworth
February 2010

Story of a heart transplant told in alternating chapters between two girls: the heart transplant recipient and the heart transplant donor. When Eagan dies during a figure skating competition, Amelia receives her heart, but when she experiences new personality traits, she questions whether she's received more than just a heart.

It's not much, but I think it sounds WONDERFUL! I can't wait to read it!

Okay, signing off now, and the next book I talk about will not be a 2010 release, I PROMISE!
