 Last but not least, yours truly just polished off Admission, by Jean Hanff Korelitz, and just picked up Entwined, by Heather Dixon and Princess of the Midnight Ball, by Jessica Day George. (I seem to have a "Twelve Dancing Princesses" fixation at the moment, so we'll see what comes of it....)

Thanks for your lists. I promise to keep recording them if you keep sending me updates. It's always nice to know what people are reading. Have a great week. May your nightstands buckle under the weight of their many tomes....
