  1. I'm reading Horse Goddess by Morgan Llywelyn. I've got about 150 pages left until it is done. I'm really liking it though so I hope my feelings keeps up until the end.

  7. The Roar caught my eye. I really enjoy a good dystopian novel and will have to check this one out. Also noticed you have Elizabeth Berg, who I am also a big fan of, but haven't read anything by her in a while. Hope you enjoy all your read this week!

  13. I was on the hold list for the Mischief of the Mistletoe for eons...it was supposed to be ready for pick up when I went to the library on Saturday, but somebody had mixed up the holds. I think now I'm just going to let it fall off the list...Too many books that need reading for 2011 Challenges!

    Hope you enjoy your reads for the week!

  16. I have The Mystery of the Mistletoe here to read. I'm glad you enjoyed it so much!
    I read Into This Air several years ago and found it to be very intense and readable, too. An amazing story!

    I hope to start reading The History of Love in the next week or so. I'm really looking forward to it!

    Enjoy!
