"A Taste of Temptation"
by Amelia Grey

Another quick trashy read. "A Taste of Temptation" is about a moment of temptation which sends a notorious rogue and a darling of the ton to the altar. Just as their marriage is becoming a true romance, a mysterious presence raises mischief in their home. A delightful read.

"The Perfect Waltz"
by Anne Gracie

After a few books which increased my knowledge and lifted my soul, I decided that I needed something that would entertain more than educate. "The Perfect Waltz" was the perfect read for perfect entertainment. "The Perfect Waltz" is about society rogue Sebastian Reyne's search for a practical wife which comes to a crashing halt when he dances with Hope Merridew--and is seduced into a delicious intrigue of sensuality and desire.

Insightful Hound

"Sight Hound"
by Pam Houston

Meg gave me this book for my birthday since she knows I love dogs and since Pam Houston is her favorite author. This was one of those books where you are not sure if you like it while you are reading but then the ending makes you love it. The basis of the book is about an Irish Wolfhound, Dante who has to teach his human (Rae) how to love. During all of this, he develops cancer which devastates his human. It left me wondering what Zubin has to teach Julie, like Dante had his lessons to teach Rae.

by Elie Wiesel

Last night after watching Grey's Anatomy, I picked up Night" -- the latest Oprah pick. This short memoir tells of Wiesel's time at Auschwitz and the horrors he saw and experienced. World War II history was my minor in college and so I was suprised that I hadn't read this important work before. Wiesel never sensationalizes anything about his experience and talks about what he remembers from this time. He doesn't hold any answers to why the Holocaust happened or why his family didn't get out in time. Wiesel does tell the reader what happened to him and why it is important to remember this horrible time in our world's history. Wiesel drew me into his memoir and didn't let me go until the last page was turned. I ended up going to sleep a lot later than I should have but I needed to hear this story and so if missing some sleep was the payment, then I'm glad I made it.
