Read anything good this month?
A Hint of Wicked, by Jennifer Haymore
A great twist on the Regency Romance, with a lot of spice.
A Matter of Class, by Mary Balogh
Short, sweet and with a surprise ending! (Unusual for a romance.)
Prince of Darkness, by Sharon Kay Penman
Book 4 in Penman’s series, this one finds Justin de Quincy working with the Prince of Darkness himself – Prince John of Mortain.
A Company of Swans, by Charlotte Ibbotsen
A trite and foolish story of a wanna-be-ballerina who escapes to Brazil and gives it all up for love.
Empress Orchid, by Anchee Min
Coming of age story of the young girl who would become China’s Empress in the mid-nineteenth century. It’s no Becoming Madam Mao.
Shiver, by Maggie Stiefvater
Everything Twilight could have been and so much more. Highly recommend for all interested in good YA lit and/or paranormals.
When Things Fall Apart, by Pema Chödrön
A powerful little book about how to navigate the grieving process or anytime in your life you feel lost.
Radical Acceptance, by Tara Brach
Despite the uber-feminist, new-agey title, this is a fantastic book for self-acceptance and self-awareness. Highly recommended for all women.
