MY THOUGHTS:
When I first began to read the book, Celia's Puppies, I have to say that I was a bit confused with the characters as Celia's Puppies is the second installment of Denver Cereal. But with the wonders of the internet I was able to read the first book as it is a "serial fiction" book.  What is "serial fiction" you ask? Serial fiction is the practice of publishing a work of fiction while it's written. The evolving nature of serial fiction lends to depth looks are people's lives, complex relationships and lots of drama.


Once I had read the first story I realized that Claudia’s characters aren’t the type you can leave. Luckily I already had the second book in hand and I could take it anywhere I went. Yes, I love the fact that I can get on the computer and read a chapter every week but I also love to take the book with me.


Celia's Puppies was the second book of the series. Both the Denver Cereal books are available for free download here.


I was instantly hooked once I started this book. I didn't really want to put it down! I found myself engrossed with the characters lives and wanted to read more. Remember, I'm a busy mom and that makes it harder to put a good book down. I would recommend this book to anyone! It's that good!


Would you like to win your own hard copy of it? Well now you can! One lucky reader will win a copy of Celia's Puppies in Paperback.
