  1. I really enjoyed The Restorer! The King's Mistress is on my wishlist; I will be looking forward to your review. Happy Reading!

  2. I've heard lots of good things about the  Parasol Protectorate series. 

    Here's my post:

    It's Monday! What Are You Reading

    Happy Reading!!

  4. Some good looking books there.  The King's Mistress has caught my eye.

    I need to check some of those titles.

    Have a good reading week


  5. Holy smokes woman - you are a reading machine!  LOL

    I am so jealous of the books you are into... I really need book time... :)

  6. The reading will of necessity slow way down soon .. classes start bakck for me this week, and Bebe Boy James will be out of school for the summer with VBS, Boy Scouts and soccer camp, and Not-So-Bebe-Girl Autumn will be going  to college this fall, so I will be spending as much time as I can with my last girl before she leaves the nest ... and it's summer, which means a lot of time outside, and even though I always take a book with me, there are so many things to do!  :)

  7. War and Peace is brilliant.  Happy reading all your books and have a wonderful week.  My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2011/05/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-41.html

  8. I need to get back to Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. This coming week is my last week off before summer session. I have a few books I want to finish before school begins. Come see what they are.

  9. SO many wonderful looking books there Julie - I'll admit I am slightly jealous! The Parasol Protectorate series sounds interesting. ENJOY!


Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
