I love Laurie King's Mary Russell series. A new one recently came out and I found it on the rental shelf at the library. The Language of Bees. It wasn't her best, but I loved it nonetheless and was sad when it came to an end. It always seems too long til the next one is slated to publish. (and this one had a decidedly "unfinished" feel to it, a to-be-continued vibe). At the end of the novel, I was missing the characters enough that I had to go back and re-read the first novel in the series: The Beekeeper's Appentice. Loved it all over again.
Also read three Martha Grimes mysteries. Pretty much disliked them all ... vehemently (surprising for me, as I usually enjoy MG's books).
Against my better judgment, I read a couple Sophie Kinsella books: Shopaholic & Baby and Remember Me?. Hated them both.
And somehow I ended up reading a bunch of random books that all revolved around war-torn WWII Europe:
I am David by Anne Holm and L. W. Kingsland - excellent.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak - also excellent.
Pictures at an Exhibition by Sara Houghteling - so-so literature, but fascinating story of the looting of Europe's art treasures by Adolph & his gang of thugs...
