First off, I'm surprised by how many books I read. Two of them were audiobooks that I listened to while traveling, but I would've thought I was too busy writing this summer to have read so many books.
And there were so many good ones on this list! I liked most of them, but really enjoyed SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE, AN EMBER IN THE ASHES, and EXILE FOR DREAMERS. My favorite of the whole bunch, though, has to be MY LADY JANE. It's just such a crazy, wild-ride of a book that kept me chuckling practically the entire time. I highly recommend it!
