  1. Verse fans should really like Falling for You because poetry plays such an important part in the plot, plus there are a ton of poems in it. So while it’s not a verse novel, I definitely felt like I got my usual Lisa Schroeder fix reading it.

    Thanks for these roundups! I love reading all the verse novel reviews.

  2. I’m all signed up for the second challenge! 😀

    I have a verse novel review scheduled to go up on Friday, so how should I get it to you to be linked up next week?
