The Villa, by Nora Roberts
What? I was looking for something light and it was exactly what the situation called for. Also: someone left it in the house, and I couldn't just let it sit there, all lonely :-)
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson
The Summoning, by Kelley Armstrong
Graceling, by Kristin Cashore
If I could write Talents as well as Ms. Cashore can write Graces, maybe I'd have a book deal for Untalented by now. I really enjoyed this read.
