    Yes, that is the author. Did you read all the books or just Princess?

    ^ Just the Princess one. I didn't know there were others.

    Maybe I misunderstood her. I only found a vague reference in a review at amazon.

    I am reading Big Machine by Victor LaValle. It is my first Kindle purchase! So far it is interesting and I'm curious to know where the story is going to go.

    Re: What are you reading?

    I'm rereading Huck Finn.
    While I like the story, it's difficult to get through because of the speech patterns of the characters. Very true of the period, but difficult for those accustomed to modern day speech.
    The story, however, is still timeless.
    I picked it up again after all the brouhaha over the language in it. I am still glad I did, even though it's taking me quite a while.

    I just read the House of Night series. Interesting take on vampires and nice, light reading.

    I really liked Russian Winter.
    I wanted it to have one more chapter.

    MsDiva, I read all of them, just loved them! Seem we have some same tastes. I'm looking for something new, and finds? Just finished The Other Daughter by Lisa Gardner, good page turning mystery, and Kimberla Lawson Roby A Deep Dark Secret. uncomfortable topic for me, not her usual story, predictible, but needed to be told.
