Gee . . . can't tell what genre you like to read. ;-)

I have several of those books on my "hope to read someday" list. Hopefully someday I will have time to start reading again and can catch up with all of these great books!

Oh my goodness! When I read Julie's comment, I'm thinking...DOB? Date of birth!? What!? But THEN I figured out it's her series(Daughters of Boston) : D Just had to tell you that : )

Nice list. I have to check out a lot of these because I haven't read them.

No new college news. Just the Castleton acceptance, which I assume you saw on my blog(though I'm not positive).
I'll keep you posted and talk to you later!!

Daughters of Boston? No way! lol Somehow I knew that was going to make your list. :o) I just re-read A Passion Most Pure myself last week... I tell you, those have got to be my favorite love stories of all time.
