I would like to recommend Desert Flower by Waris Dirie.
I'm in a sci-fi/mystical phase. My favorite books, lately, are vampire novels/series. I just finished up the House of Night series and the Sookie Stackhouse series. I'm currently finishing up the Vampire Diaries series. Anyone else into vampires? :-) I am a serious Twilighter.
Try Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter. Good Read.
I just finished Beach House Memories - loved it!! Now I am into A Discovery of Witches and I can not put it down; I'm stirring the soup while I read, trying to fold laundry while reading, etc I'm a person who reads magazines from the back cover to the front cover and I usually read the last few pages of a book before I begin reading, however, not this time. I am determined to be surprised. I am going to order the next book so I won't have to wait too long. Love your list of books! Thanks
Ooooh, I loved a Discovery of Witches (book 2 is out too). Enjoy every yummy sentence!
