thank you

I wanted to thank everyone who included some suggestions for ficiton titles in their comments. Wow! Some I'd never even heard of, but I'm adding them to my list. As I try to broaden my reading horizons, it is so helpful to learn about other people's favorites.

I went with Blackbringer, a first YA fantasy novel by Laini Taylor. I first heard of Taylor in this author interview on Shannon Hales' website. I love Taylor's personal website and blog as well as her thoughts on writing in the Not for Robots blog.

I've only read four chapters, but I'm already very impressed with the writing. This is good stuff! No wonder it's so touted. It's about a devil-hunting fairy named Magpie.
