Lots of books this past few weeks!

Jamaica Inn by Daphne DuMaurier.
I know it looks a bit like a typical (porn) romance but it's totally not. I've read Rebecca and My Cousin Rachel by DuMaurier and loved both. Her writing is fantastic and very clean.

The Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson
I just finished his novel Elantris and really enjoyed it. It's great scifi/fantasy with tons of action and intrigue but also very clean. No sex, no swearing. I'm excited to start this trilogy.

I also got Magic Study and Fire Study by Maria V. Snyder. They are books two and three in a trilogy. Book one is called Poison Study.

I've already finished all three and really enjoyed this series. It's a fun and intriguing mystery/adventure. I really like the heroine and adored the hero opposite her. They were all pretty clean. There was some sex. As in you knew that they were going to have sex but it's not descriptive at all. In the first book there is also a part where she has a memory of rape but it wasn't descriptive. I would still recommend the series. I really liked it!

I also ordered The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale.
I liked her book Book of a Thousand Days and this one was recommended on Good Reads so I thought I would give it a shot. I'll let you know how it goes.

These all sound like great books. I have wanted to read Daphne DuMaurier but I still haven't gotten around to it. So many good books out there!
