  1. Hi Weasel – We have very similar taste, you and I. Many of your books are some of my past favorites, and you also list several that have grabbed my interest, but I haven’t read them yet. For instance, I keep meaning to read Deanna Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey (am I remembering that correctly?). I think it would be perfect for me. I’m also glad to see someone else appreciated FATED. I thought it was pretty clever and inventive. That twist at the end was amazing.


  2. Rebecca, thank you for commenting!

    The Lady Julia Grey books are wonderful! How can one NOT love a book that starts “To say that I met Nicholas Brisbane over my husband’s dead body is not entirely accurate. Edward, it should be noted, was still twitching upon the floor.”

    We do seem to have very similar taste in books. I love the Vorkosigan series by Bujold (though was somewhat disappointed by “Cryoburn”), and “Shards of Honor” is my favorite.

    I did have some disagreements with your list – Balogh’s “A Matter of Class” did not impress me as much as it did you, though usually I really enjoy her writing. It could be that I just read it at a bad time in my life. I just finished “The Poison Throne,” and have “The Crowded Shadows” in my TBR pile. So far, so good… On the waiting list for “The Iron Duke,” and can’t wait to get my greedy hands on it 🙂


    1. Shara, I really enjoyed White Cat. Lots of “did not see this coming!” moments.

      Hope you’ll like “Unholy Ghosts” and its sequels. I was blown away, but some other reviewers had an issue with the heroine’s drug use.
