    I’m reading Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett.

  2. Elizabeth aka Miss Eliza on October 24, 2009 at 3:36 am

    Oh, I just picked that up, can’t wait to read that! I just finished the 2nd Amelia Peabody mystery and have started the new Elizabeth Kostova book.

  3. Sheila on October 24, 2009 at 8:38 am

    Her Royal Spyness, by Rhys Bowen…so far, great fun.

  4. Sonia on October 24, 2009 at 9:06 am

    “Hometown Appetites: The Story of Clementine Paddleford, the Forgotten Food Writer Who Chronicled how America Ate” by Kelly Alexander and Cynthia Harris

    A mouthful to say, yes. Very fascinating. Who knew that America actually had a food culture?

    Just finished “The Unexpected Bride” by Elizabeth Rolls – lovely. Also just completed the ‘Desperate Duchesses’ series by Eloisa James which were all excellent. (Especially loved the last book, “This Duchess of Mine.”) Now just starting another Elizabeth Rolls book, “A Compromised Lady.”

  6. Liz on October 24, 2009 at 4:11 pm

    ‘The King’s Favorite’ ‘Tears of Pearl’ and ‘Pistols for Two’

  7. Julie on October 24, 2009 at 10:40 pm

    Second Glance by Jodi Picoult. It is my favorite of hers. Its got ghosts, lost love, new love, murder, flash backs, rare diseases,and tons of other stuff. Plus like twelve different characters to follow, but if you can keep up with them, it is a great book to read.

    Prada and Prejudice, which turned out to be not so good (if you land your character in 1815 with a handsome duke who kisses her, you DO NOT bring her back to the present!), and Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, which was quite enjoyable.

  9. Brittanie on October 25, 2009 at 11:21 am

    I just finished the 24 hour read a thon. I have discovered for the first time the Betsy/Tacy series by Maud Hart Lovelace. I just finished book four and they good sweet clean books. 🙂

  10. Elizabeth aka Miss Eliza on October 25, 2009 at 4:26 pm

    Yeah, I saw that Harper Perenniel had re-released all the Betsy/Tacy series in pretty new editions.

  11. am7 on October 25, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    I love Betsy-Tacy. Have you read the three side novels? (Books featuring side characters from the ten Betsy books.)

  12. Gina on October 25, 2009 at 11:22 pm

    The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson has been suggested to me, but I haven’t had time to pick it up. I was planning on it, though…It sounds really, really good.

  13. Elissa on October 25, 2009 at 11:51 pm

    Hood by Stephen Lawhead…and all my history texts. Mostly my history texts.

  14. Katie on October 26, 2009 at 1:00 am

    I have been getting through “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and “Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters”. They are a bit ridiculous, but kind of fun. After I finish these I plan on finally finishing “Bleak House”.

  15. Kristen on October 26, 2009 at 11:49 am

    Miss Eliza- Kostova has a new one?!?!? oh I’m so excitied now… 🙂

    I finished “A Match for Mary Bennet” by Eucharista Ward. It was lovely. It made me like Mary more not only from this book, but also as she is in P&P. I understand her more, and she’s delusional but lovely. 🙂

  16. Elizabeth aka Miss Eliza on October 26, 2009 at 4:18 pm

    Yeah, Kostova’s new book comes out in January…sad to say, I’m really not liking it, the characters are unlikable in the extreme and not an an interesting so you can get past the unlikable…

  17. Liz on October 26, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    I’m reading The Condition by Jennifer Haigh- not really a period piece but I’m loving the family drama. I’d highly recommend it even though the writing style takes a little getting used to!

  18. Sunny on October 28, 2009 at 5:11 pm

    I just blew thru the complete Megan McCafferty Jess Darling series, loved it. I also read Moonlight in Odessa by Janet Skeslien Charles, very nice. And just completed the new Diana Gabaldon Echo in the Bone. Never heard of the Betsy/Tacy so going to look them up.

  19. Alicia on October 28, 2009 at 11:37 pm

    The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. It’s almost creepy how this book just speaks to me and my recent life path. I know that probably sounds corny, but it’s… serendipitous really.

  20. Chelsey on October 29, 2009 at 12:24 pm

    I’m reading (yet again 🙂 Jane Austen’s “Emma”. It’s my favorite!
