One of these days I need to read EC. I keep meaning to but her books generally take too long to ship and I am the impatient sort. I can't walk in the stores here and buy her, so, yeah... One of these days. Maybe if I get gift cards for my birthday!

I don't know when I learned to read, I just sort of always have! Even when I wasn't sure what it was that I was doing I had a book in my hands... Actually, my first word was 'book'. A fact that my parents remind me of from time to time. I guess I had my priorities straight... Ahem... I was reading b...

See how backwards we have become! Even if men marry women that are not virgins or have children already, there are always those people in the background whispering about the scandal of it all! We think we are a more advanced society, but in many ways civilizations were better off. You can't do anyth...

I used to hate first person POV, but it is growing on me. I find I am also a fan of books that change back and forth with each chapter, so that sometimes it is first-person and other times it is third. The only first-person POV I have not got over is when it is young kids narrating their own stories...

Wideacre by Philippa Gregory is the first one that comes to mind. That was an atrocious book! I also didn't like The Queen's Fool by her. And then, like Marg, I did not like Madame Victorine. That disappointed me because it sounded promising and just did not work.

I read this book at the beginning of the year! It was pretty good. She had another book out in the summer and I preordered it, but I never received it. Now it is saying currently unavailable.

[quote=""SonjaMarie""]If they're true ghost stories, send me titles, of course I usually get my books mainly from BF, so it will mainly depend on if they have it or not, that's where I found "Haunted Harbours" and it was a bit of a bust. Thanks!
