  • A new Janet Evanovich book just came out on Tuesday. It's book 15 in the series. My mom and a friend recommended them to me. They are funny, easy reads about a female bail bond enforcer in New Jersey who is torn between two men and whose sidekick is a former prostitute. The first one is One for the Money.

    If you love chick lit, try Marian Keyes or the Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella.

  • Circle of Stones by Anna Lee Waldo (followed by Circle of Stars)
    Wales, the 12th Century: As told by Brenda, a mistress of Owain, the Prince of Wales, the court of Gwynedd faces the threat of amalgamation by the English realm and the Christian religion. Afraid of a fateful prophecy about her newborn son, Brenda flees Owain and Wales for the safety of a druid camp in Ireland. Comforted by their spiritual beliefs and the handsome Sein, Brenda begins to adapt to druid ways and to study druid knowledge. But when Owain's men recapture her, she claims that her son Madoc has died and reluctantly returns to court. Disgusted with Owain's bloodlust and the rivalry among his mistresses and sons, Brenda dreams of the day she'll return to her son and the druid community. But Madoc is fostered to a local druid teacher, just as the danger of external invasion and internal betrayal threaten Owain's power.
