Time for more "book blurbing" of recent reads I haven't fully reviewed...head's up!

The Zookeeper's Wife by Diane Ackerman

A memoir set in Poland during World War II about a Warsaw zoo, and the story of the family who lived there, and served as part of the Jewish "underground railroad".

The Girl She Left Behind by Karen Brichoux

Novel of the big city girl who goes home again to Montana. Fast, fast read - unexpected ending, but satisfying after all.

Masquerade by Melissa de la Cruz

Second in the YA series "Blue Bloods" about vampires in NYC society. Another good addition to the series - stay tuned!

Dead As a Doornail by Charlaine Harris

Book five in the Sookie Stackhouse "Southern Vampire" series explores a lot more about the werewolf and werepanther part of Sookie's locale.

Definitely Dead by Charlaine Harris

Book six in the same series - and this time, Sookie is dating a weretiger. Hot, huh? :-)

Sex With Kings by Eleanor Herman

A really interesting non-fiction read about mistresses, power, revenge, marriages and more over 500 years of kings in Europe. A companion to Sex With the Queen, another great non-fiction read!

Wild Card by Lora Leigh

*wipes steam from the monitor after reading this erotica-filled adventure novel*

Sucks To Be Me by Kimberly Pauley

Cute YA novel about teens who choose to become vampires - it's in their DNA, after all. Cute premise, cute story.

Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

It has to do with Harry Potter. I had to read it. Cute - but very short.

Cracked Up To Be by Courtney Summers

Kind of depressing YA novel with an unlikeable heroine - which, I suppose, is the point.

A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb

Interesting twist on the typical ghost love story in this inventive YA novel. Didn't end as I expected, but a nice premise.
