    I love the first few books in the Pink Carnation series, but I’m on #7 and it’s starting to drag a little. Hope you enjoy that one, though!

      I am looking forward to the 2nd. I hate that I have to wait until January to start, but December is a crazy month. I’m barely reading! Glad to know that they stay interesting for so long!

    I am excited! I am waiting on it to come in from the library, so I picked two different novels, since I have the other novel, but it’s long and I’m not sure that I will like it.
