A Morbid Taste for Bones: The First Chronicle of Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters
The first Brother Cadfael mystery of Ellis Peters classic mystery series is quite engaging. It launches off in an interesting direction and carries the entanglements of the characters to a very interesting conclusion. I don't know how accurate Peters' portrayal of Medieval life is, but this book is fun, engaging and a book I recommend.

One Corpse Too Many: The Second Chronicle of Brother Cadfael by Ellis Peters
Fun Medieval mystery that's sometimes a bit too sentimental.

North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
A period book just the way I like it: a tall, dark and broody hero; a charming, intelligent and feisty heroine; and of course, Victorian England. Also, despite anachronisms, the BBC miniseries of the same name is also as good.

Music For Landing Planes By: Poems by Eireann Lorsung
This was a very satisfactory collection of poems by Eireann Lorsung. The collection reminded my of a musical montage...You know how the singer will be in an apartment in New York, then step through a door and enter...Paris? Something similar here but more...poetic, quiet and aware of the common. The work didn't blow me away. I walked away from it without much of a recollection of what I read. But while I was there, I enjoyed myself.

Austenland by Shannon Hale
I was asleep before I even started.

House of Many Ways by Dianne Wynne Jones
Read Howl's Moving Castle and Castle in the Air, then stop. Really.

Tell Me a Riddle: Short Stories by Tillie Olsen
A very dear friend recommended this read. She loved it. Unfortunately, I didn't even finish it. My interest in the book was quite short-lived. That's the way the cookie crumbles.
