I started a new book the other day, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig.

I only really read on the subway when I don't have company, so I usually only get 20 pages or so done each day. At this moment, I'm not even 100 pages into the tale, but --

BUT! I am so loving it!

It's so much fun! The characters are cute, the descriptions are all vivid, poetic, and succinct. Miss Willig demonstrates a real playfulness in tone and diction that I really thoroughly enjoy.

Buddhista recommended this book and its sequel to me and I am very happy that I bought them both on the spot. I am only sorry at the moment of having waited so long to start them. And now that I looked them up on Amazon, I've found that there is a third book in the series! I do so hope that the entire book and the others live up to the expectations set in the first 63 pages of this one!
