I am on the 2nd to last of the In Death series by J.D. Robb. I am both thrilled and sad. I think I have been reading these for what seems like six months. I won't know what to do with myself when I finish, but I know there will be another one soon.

I finally broke down & am reading Divergent. It's not bad but it's defiantly not what I usually read. Usually I tend to read something with a more supernatural element to it.

I enjoyed Astonish Me. There is a lot of ballet vocabulary that I didn't really understand, but it didn't slow me down or muddle the story. The characters are well developed and the writing was brisk, creative and not at all laborious. I might take a look at Maggie Shipstead's first novel, Seating Arrangements.

I just finished Gossamer by Lois Lowry. What a sweet little story.

Now I am reading Lakota Woman by Mary Crow Dog and Richard Erdoes. It's an eye opener on how Native Americans have been and still are treated.

Just finished Max Barry's "Machine Man", an endearing romp about a nerd cutting through the bureaucracy of the corporate/high-tech world. Wry and inoffensive, but cynical. I'm looking forward to Barry's "Jennifer Government". Another brilliant and gifted Australian writer -- there seem to be a lot of them.

I just started The Secret History by Donna Tartt. I have read her other two books and am a huge Goldfinch fan, so I'm hopeful that I'm in for an excellent read!
