I finally finished the Rhapsody series. I liked the PD James and Stardust was very enjoyable. I am looking forward to reading more Neil Gaiman. He must be pretty popular because I rarely find him in the library.

I liked Wicked better than Son of a Witch. I was much more intrigued by the character Elphaba than I thought I would be.

I really really enjoyed The Forgotten Desert Mothers by Laura Swan. So much so I have it on order from our book store. I liked Encountering the Mystery by His Eminence Patriarch BARTHOLOMEW but I fell in love with His Excellency Metropolitan Kallistos Ware. He wrote the introduction to Encountering the Mystery and it was better (in my opinion) than the book itself. I am going to reread The Orthodox Church which I read over 11 years ago.
I enjoyed both YarnHarlot books (Stephanie Pearl-MacPhee) very much. She was such a fun read and very Canadian. I love her use of parentheses. She seems to love them as much as I do.

I am planning on reading Life of Pi to Simon I enjoyed it so much.

I enjoyed the schmoopy romances. Sometimes I just need a little schmoop to get me through life.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Have you read confessions of an Ugly StepSister by Maguire? I liked it too.
I have two Gaimans on my nightstand right now waiting on me to read them.
Not yet. I just got out Mirror Mirror though. I am looking forward to reading it.
I am really looking forward to reading more Gaiman.
I had been trying to remember the title of Mirror, Mirror. He has a new one out too, but I haven't been able to get a copy of it yet. It is some spin on the tooth fairy.
