Sunday Salon: Reading, Read, To Read #5

Happy Sunday everyone! I'll be posting my monthly 'accomplishments' later in the day. If you should be so curious to want to know every little thing I've read and reviewed this week. It also includes my favorite 'first' lines of the month and my top six favorite books. (I gave up on narrowing it to a top five. It seems there is always *one* more book that just begs to be on the list.)

What was your favorite book that you read this month? I'd love to know! I think mine would probably be Tiger Moon. I just loved this one.
