Austenland by shannon hale, pretty cute. Made me laugh out loud, quite a bit. I got a sample of another book by her because I like to laugh, but it wasn't funny.

It didn't get great reviews - what did you think? Is it just something light & easy to read?

I hated Mark Helprin's recent In Sunlight and In Shadow.

Usually I love his writing.

I am currently reading The Machine of Death, and loving it! My friend bought if for me as a Christmas gift last year. It is a satirical science fiction fantasy about a machine that predicts your death. After giving a finger stick blood sample, it tells you how you will die but not when or where. To give one example from the jacket, "You will die from Aids transmitted via a contaminated needle in the death machine".

It isn't completely dark and out there. It also explores how relationships change, after hearing predictions. Some of the stories (it is a collection of several different ones) are touching.

I adore her Middle Grade books - and I've been wanting to read Austenland for a while now. I think I know what my next book will be
