Currently reading

L.E. Modesitt Jr.

This Time Next Door

This Time Next Door - Gretchen Galway Plot was ok. Found myself getting irritated with the author though... She spent a lot of time describing how the main female character was beautiful and desirable despite being a plus size, but went for the stereotypical male lead (over 6 foot, muscles everywhere etc) without noticing the irony of it. Think this is possibly an issue I have more with the genre in general - can understand where it comes from with women reading the books and wanting an escape from all the 'normal' men around. Any way, rant aside, it was a good summer time read.
