So this is officially the first post on the Smartypants Book Blog website. I am Amanda and you can check out more about us in that page above. I am currently on vacation for another 4 weeks so I am excited to start this as it is something Heather and I have discussed numerous times. I have already read quite a few books in the last couple of weeks most were re-reads to prepare for the newest in the series. I will make sure to upload a post about the books so far later today. The one I am most excited to tell you about is Independence by Shelly Crane. It is the last book in her significance series and it did come out last month but as I had to take my national veterinary licensing exam I was a little busy and behind in my reading. I will make up for it later today.
