Let me get the most embarrassing book out of the way first...
The House by Danielle Steel: A library patron saw me putting this out and said it was her favorite DS book, so I tried it. Um. Yeah. Predictable I can live with, but repetitive is annoying.
Murphy's Law by Rhys Bown: I'm still reading the other Rhys Bowen series (Evan Evans), but branched off into the Molly Murphy series now. I wasn't sure I'd like it, because it's both a mystery and historical, but I really enjoyed it because the historical stuff wasn't overwhelming.
The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own by Nina Garcia: In my dreams! It was an interesting read, just way out there. The illustrations by Ruben Toledo are fun!
An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination by Elizabeth McCracken: A memoir about losing a baby and then becoming pregnant again. Not the downer it sounds like! I had a little trouble getting started, but it was a good read.
Sapphira and the Slave Girl by Willa Cather: Imagine that--I don't only read crap! Interesting thoughts about slavery.
The Beach House by Jane Green: Actually had a lot more substance than I expected. Enjoyed it.
The Floating Circus by Tracie Zimmer: A kids' book about a boy who jumps from an orphan train and joins the circus. Great characters!
