I'm the sort of person who reads vast amounts of children's books, despite being much older than the typical user of the juvenile section of the library. I just finished a two-book series: The Blackthorn Key and Mark of the Plague by Kevin Sands. Excellent historical fiction, and I definitely recommend it to anyone who likes ciphers and puzzles. It's also quite the page turner.

I'm reading "Uninvited" for a book club the ladies at church are doing this year. I signed up because, well, I need to read, and my friend is doing it, and I said I'd go if she's going and so... :book:

I've never read it (or seen it) but I've been curious since they talk about it so much in The Lake House. Is it worse than the other Austens??

The only Jane Austen book that I really enjoyed was Emma. I found the others really hard going to read. :P

You guys are making me want to read Pride and Prejudice again.

I just finished 112 Christian Authors and Publishing Professionals Share Their Best Advice for Novelists. It was really good and I highly recommend it.

Now it's on to another book. I just have to decide which one.

I'm currently beta-reading a middle grade novel for someone off of Simbi. (https://simbi.com/sarah-bacavis) It's literally the most adorable thing. :book:

I found a large collection of Christine Feehan books the other day at a local charity shop. Someone had brought almost all her Dark collection in, and I got them all for about ten pounds, which is amazing. (They're usually about £8 each) I haven't started them yet, as I have been working a lot, and having lots of early nights, but they are my next books to read. I am looking forward to seeing what they are like. Has anyone else read them?
