February Reads

Margins are acting crazy again. Sorry!  
Me and Mr. Darcy Alexandra Potter 2/4/2011 Good Fiction Bookstore manager goes on Jane Austen tour on a whim and, through a twist in time, meets the real Darcy. But he's not all she imagined. Interesting, if you need something light and Austen-related.  

Emma Jane Austen 2/8/2011 Good Classic Spoiled rich Emma Woodhouse tries to make matches for everyone but herself. Loved Emma this time!

The Postcard Killers James Patterson & Liza Marklund 2/8/2011 Good Suspense A pair of killers roams Europe killing young lovers. Gory but interesting.  

Northanger Abbey Jane Austen 2/10/2011 Good Classic Catherine Morland visits Bath for the 1st time and meets Henry Tilney Tilney is my fav. Austen hero!!!  

One Tough Mother: it's time to step up and be the Mom Julie Barnhill 2/11/2011 Good Parenting Tips on parenting Took me forever to read this. Really, I started it a couple years ago and then it sat in my basket for a long time. It reinforced a lot of what I was doing but not too much new ground in this. This was recently reprinted with a new title.  

Dragonfly in Amber Diana Gabaldon 2/15/2011 Good Romance 3rd RE-READ; Jamie and Claire must find their place in Bonny Prince Charlie's attempt to regain his throne. I just adore listening to Davina Porter read Gabaldon. LOVE LOVE LOVE!  

400 Calorie Fix: The Easy New Rule for Permanent Weight Loss Liz Vaccariello with Mindy Hermann 2/15/2011 Fair Nonfiction Beautifully presented, but not very practical in my opinion. Includes pictures and recipes for four hundred 400-calorie meals, as well as a rationale for eating that way Pretty book. Not very helpful.  

Secrets to the Grave Tami Hoag 2/19/2011 Good Suspense Someone has killed a young mother and left her 4yo daughter for dead. Seriously? I don't remember this at all from my description. LOL
