  1. I have never read anything horror I don't think I could handle it. I am kinda a wimp I am beginning to realize.

  2. Skirting the Grave looks and sounds cute. Enjoy!

  3. I got Itsy Bitsy and haven't had a chance to read it yet - let me know if it's any good :)

  4. Tananarive Due is great -- enjoy it!

    I absolutely have quit reading a series based on bad changes in a character and writing. Most notably, the company books by Kage Baker -- it just got weirder and crazier as the books went on. Too bad for me because I'm dying to know how the series ended!

  5. A vintage, magic mystery sounds like a good read!
