Hope you don't mind if I follow you on Shelfari. I like a lot of the books on your shelf and I am from Mishawaka and South Bend also. I really miss HOME at this time of year. I would love to have a white Christmas again. As long as I don't have to shovel it.
Merry Christmas and happy reading,
Songs of Love and Death by George R. R. Martin is the newest and fills in a number of blanks. Warriors, also by George R. R. Martin has a short story about Lord John. The Lord John series also contains some references to Jamie and Claire, though the only one I've read is Lord John and the Private Matter and it does not. Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade and Lord John and the Hand of the Devils I've heard that they mention them as characters. There is another book due out late this year, The Scottish Prisoner, which is specifically about Jamie and Lord John. I suspect there are others. I'm always looking to sniff things out that Diana Gabaldon has authored as I really enjoy her writings. Hellfire, Phoenix Noir, Mothers and Daughters, Fathers and Daughters, Naked Came the Phoenix are others she's authored. Interestingly, the Into the Wilderness series by Sara Donati mentions Jamie and Claire. Book five of that series is my 700+ page mini challenge for July. There is also a book six.
I have read (and own) the graphic novel, The Exile. I put a short review in my book shelf listing. To make it easy, I'll copy it here.
Not being used to the graphic book genre, I found the second reading a lot more enjoyable than the first. With most of the men wearing the same clothing, and most having long, brown hair, i found it difficult to follow who was who the first time through. The story line itself was a delightful addition to other books in the Outlander series.
Hope that helps in your decision. :)
I've read one and have the two others waiting. I also have four anthologies with Diana Gabaldon short stories. I've read that several of them fill in some questions that have been left hanging in the Outlander series. I'm currently re-listening to that series in anticipation of a new release next year.

Dear Booktivity member. We have a tie at our vote between school and emotions and as you have voted for magic we (the adimins) kindly ask you to re-vote for either school or emotions to get a decision. You have time until tomorrow. No offense if you don't like to vote again. Have a great weekend!
