  1. I'd be interested to know about The Tenth Circle. I haven't read the book but I've seen it around at a friend's.

    Happy reading this week!

  2. I recently read The Diva Paints the Town. Although it wasn't my favorite in the series (I thought there were too many characters to keep track of), I still am enjoying it. I need to read The Diva Cooks a Goose soon.

  8. I'm reading The Paris Wife right now...along with Freedom. One during the day, the other at night.

    Enjoyed The Last Time I Saw You...but then, I love all Berg novels.

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  10. 3 books at a time ... I envy those who can read more than one and keep the plot straight :-)

  11. @Kah Woei It helps that one is an audio book. Cleopatra is great, but slow-going so I only read a little at a time.

  19. I'm interested in Cleopatra, I've heard good things about this one. I have had Major Pettigrew sitting on my ipod for months and it never interests me when I'm getting ready to pick my next book... I can't explain why... I'm sure I will love it.

    have a great week
