Did you know that Book 4 of the Mistress series is out next month? I've never felt that any of the books lived up to the first but I still read and love them.

I'm reading a lot of Heyer and also just finished Megan Whalen Turner's latest. Bernice McFadden is next on my list.

Just finished Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Enjoyed it immensely :)
Book before that was Jonathan Tropper's This is Where I Leave You which I HIGHLY recommend.
