Good list- I have a few on hold myself! What did you think of the Night Circus ?

Red Ruby Heart in a Cold, Blue Sea- really liked it.

THe Miseducation of Cameron Post- YA but very well told, about a young girl who is gay, living in small town Montana and is "outed"

Catch Me- good mystery -the latest by Lisa Gardner

AFterwards- Rosamund Lupton- not sure if you read 'Sister" by her- very good -b ut this is her latest and I devoured it this weekend- another mystery, told in a different voice and really liked it as well!
