Noticed you liked Lovely Bones, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here, as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it also contains a young female narrator struggling with a series of tragic circumstances. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the book before you commit:

Oh, and right now I'm reading about London during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I. It's very fascinating.
The first in that series is "Outlander". It's about time travel and Scottish history. The heroine, Clare, lives in England during World War II, and she and her husband visit Scotland where she accidentally steps back in time the times right before the second, and ultimately unsuccessful, Jacobite uprising. And she meets Jamie, and falls in love with him in the past, even though she's married in her time. I find the history part very interesting. The books are technically classified as Romance and there are some mushy love and sex scenes, but otherwise I like them because I love historical fiction. But the first three in the series are really the best ones. I never even finished the fifth book because it was sooo boring, so I never read the last one, the one you have. The author is actually working on the next book right now, so the series is still in progress and the last two books deal with the American Revolution.
Diana Gabaldon has a huge following, and everyone I've recommended these books to has loved them, so you'll probably like them. Unless you can't get past the romancy stuff! ;)
Why do you have A Breath of Snow and Ashes? It's the latest book in that series and you don't have any of the other ones.
Hey there, Ophelia! Glad to join you here! I can see that this site will be addictive. I may have to get some hobbies that don't involve books, soon... Maybe later!
Thanks for joining the 20-Something LibraryThingers group!
