Guest Post: Jacquelyn Wheeler (Rising Shadow)

Today we are happy to welcome Jacquelyn Wheeler, author of the paranormal YA novel Rising Shadow (The Soterians #1). Jacquelyn is here to talk about her top ten favorite books.  We love hearing about which books authors love.  Knowing authors enjoy reading as much as we do makes reading their novels even more fun and special.  Welcome to I'd So Rather Be Reading, Jacquelyn!

  1. Great list of books (besides Twilight in my humble opinion haha) Love this :)

  2. First, I want to read this book based on the cover alone.
    Second, I have read most of her top ten books, which means are reading tastes are in line, so means I have to read this book.

  3. Great to see Jacquelyn's favorite books :) I read Rising Shadow last year and I loved it!


Word verification stinks--- but spammers are worse. Thank you for your patience!
