    husband and I have been on a reading binge. Is anyone reading something new
    that we might enjoy?

    by the way, I ordered the Adult Aspie book that Fran recommended and it is really
    really valuable. I wish I had been able to read it years ago. DDD

    I love the Kellerman's. Faye and her husband Jonathan. They also have a son named Steven I believe who has started writing. They are psychological mystery writers.

    I just read the latest from Carol O'Connel. She has a series featuring Kathy Mallory but this one was a stand alone in a different "world". (Not sci-fi, just not Kathy's world)

    Dana Stabenow is a good one too.

    Diana Gabaldon, Kay Hooper, Linda Lael Miller, Nevada Barr, Carol Nelson Douglas, Diane Mott Davidson, Stephenie Meyer...

    I read a lot too, these are just the ones I could think of off the top of my head. Historical fiction, time travel, murder mysteries, cats, vampires and cooking. In no particular order... LOL

    Dana Stabenow, Carol O'Connel, Sue Grafton, James Patterson, PJ Tracey, JD Robb, Jeffrey Deaver, Jeff Lindsay, Janet Evanovitch, Patricia Cornwell, Charlaine Harris.

    Like Step, this is what I came up with off the top of my head.

    I recently read the following and I found them to be good for the most part. The ones with astericks were my faves:

    *My Enemy's Cradle by Sara Young

    **The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly (Read Daughter of York first though)

    The Rest of her Life by Laura Moriarty

    *The Third Angel by Alice Hoffman

    Songs of the HUmback Whale by Jodi Picult - one of all her books that I've read that I really didn't enjoy, but it was still good because I like her style of writing.

    Currently, I am reading, The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Baeurmeister. I like it so far. It's very interesting, though not a fast read.

    I tend to donate or give away most of the books I read, so I often can't remember the titles until I take an interest in them at the library or book store. I can't tell you how many times I've take a book out only to discover I've already read it!!!

    I'm reading a young adult fantasy series called Gregor the Overlander and it's been excellent. I read the first book Saturday and went back to the library yesterday for the rest.
