    Mumford & Sons

    So, I loved their first album, beginning to end. I enjoyed their second album but there are songs that I consistently skip. But this new album...I can't even bring myself to watch the whole video for "Believe"; it just sound so much like so many other bands! Have any of you listened to "Believe"? What did you think?

    Jane Eyre

    I love Jane Eyre! Although sometimes I kinda wanted to smack Jane upside the head and tell her to just TELL St. John that she wasn't eager to die. Have any of you read Jasper Fforde's The Eyre Affair?
  3. Guy Gabriel Kay put out a fantasy trilogy called The Fionavar Tapestry, and I start to cry about halfway into each book. So sad, but so beautiful!
  4. I love Courtney Milan; she writes mostly historical romances but always with a twist (suffragettes, female scientists and mathematicians, peers who want to abolish the peerage...that kind of thing). She recently put out a contemporary called Trade Me that includes a transgender best friend and someone rather unexpected suffering from an eating disorder. She overturns expectations, but keeps the story focused closely on the characters.
  5. Gorgeous new layout! A+ for the redesign!
