The Masque of the Black Tulip

So, I finished The Secret History of the Pink Carnation today. It was as good as always. :) I got sick in my first class this morning so I decided to utilize my time by reading. So, needless to say, I have already begun rereading The Masque of the Black Tulip. This was done in place of the math test I should have been preparing for. I think it was a more than fair trade and am quite happy with my decision.

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation

So, I am currently rereading Lauren Willig's fantastic Pink Carnation series in preparation for the newest release in January, The Betrayal of the Blood Lily. Every time I open one of Lauren Willig's books, I am drawn in. I've read this series countless times but I continually turn back to read it again. I can't wait until the next book is released. I preordered it online and it seems like January 10th can't come fast enough. So, I'm passing the time by going back to the beginning, back to Amy and Richard. I'm excited at that prospect, too. I'm even having Nick, my boyfriend, read the series. He's not too thrilled (he doesn't like "girly books" and apparently if it has a flower in the title, it's girly.), but I agreed to read a Star Wars book in return, which will doubtlessly be an interesting endeavor.
