Hey there Mariel. I've missed ya too. Glad to see you are reading Dead in the Family. It was a quick and easy read. I am thinking of going back and reading the 3rd book in the series again, as True Blood season 3 is about to start up. It will be interesting to see how they handle the Bill situation on the television show. I am reading Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter right now, and will read Eclipse again before I see the movie at the end of June. I hope you are doing well.

I just started "Real Vampires Have Curves" so it is too soon to tell whether it's good or not. Glad to hear you are enjoying The Time Traveler's Wife. I understand about it being a bit confusing at times, but the more you pay attention to the dates at the beginning of each chapter/section the easier it gets. :)
