The Temptation of the Night Jasmine by Lauren Willig
I just finished the 4th book of this series (review to come) and I'm anxious to jump back into the action with the next.
What Angels Fear by C.S. Harris
This is our February book club read, but it's also one that always on my goodreads' recommendations. It's a mystery that takes place in England in the early 1800s.
Definitely an exciting week in our house, both related to books as well as babies. Although considering the new edition (at least the living, breathing one) I have no idea when I'm going to find time to read all of these!
