"Well, we kinda face to the north and real subtle-like turn left."*

The Grand Sophy – Georgette Heyer
Cocktails for Three – Madeline Wickham
Geyser Life – Edward Hardy

And now you know.
And so do I.
(And thanks to Jess for the inside scoop on canceled hold records.)

Now go read Lauren Groff’s Monsters of Templeton.
It’s (so far) the best modern novel I have read in a very long time.

I knew you would like Monsters. She's all of 30 so let's hope she has a few more in her like that.

Freaky! I JUST finished The Grand Sophy this afternoon, sigh, so funny, so romantic, so satisfying. My first Heyer. I'm hooked. Why hadn't I read her as a teenager? Because I was reading Jean Plaidy instead.

I can't believe I out-librarianed you! I thought for sure it would turn out your library doesn't do that.

The Grand Sophy is my all-time favorite. I also adore Venetia and Arabella.

Love your quote up there.

Done! I actually just started Monsters of Templeton yesterday and it seems very promising. I've had it for a few days but had to finish the new Stephen King first...in retrospect this was not a strategic decision. Hindsight is always 20/20.

I'm just beginning Monsters of Templeton today. I added it to my blog then came here and you were telling us to go read it!

I'll go order the Monsters book. Woo hoo for Millenium, there are a few things to love (but only a few) about our ILS, yay librarians!

I had Monsters in my hand at Borders. Put it back for...what? Who remembers! Guess I'm going back for it.
