I really enjoyed Deanna's Silent in the Grave. And Crimson Petal and the White took my breath away with its period detail.

Cool! We should start a thread with all our Listmania's and screen names for other websites!!

I agree about the listmania. That could be helpful and didnt we have a thread like that over on the other forum.

I absolutely loved Crimson Petal and the White, The Meaning of Night (both of which I found very atmospheric) and The Tea Rose. I have The Observations, Kept, Fingersmith, Affinity and Silent in the Grave on my TBR pile. I can remember enjoying Shadow of the Moon years ago, I still have an old copy of it. There are several on that list which I must make a note of - on my wish list they go!

Oh, you'll love Affinity if you like atmospheric!

I can hardly wait to read Crimson Petal and the White.

I've never read a book by Sarah Waters, but loads of people rave about them. I shall bump Affinity up my TBR pile! :)
