Blood and Chocolate  by Annette Curtis Klause.  My best friend worships the book!!!  I won't read anything with werewolves in it, and Harry Potter was the exception.

"Harmony" by POW

I'm not a fan of Prince Charles per se, but I've maintained an ongoing interest in environmental issues since I was a teenager. My son picked it out, without any help, as a gift for my birthday. ... I'll do a book review synopsis after I've finished the book, if anyone's interested. ...

'Now you know royalty' by Doug Lennox
It's a cool fun facts book about royalty and it explains a lot of things like: What is the civil list? or What is the Act of Settlement?
They focus mainly on Canada (the writer is Canadian) and how the RF and the commonwealth affected their history and how much it still affects modern life.
 thumbsup good read!
BTW did you know that it was rumoured that queen Anne Boleyn had six fingers on her right hand? (one of the little fun fact from the book! tehe)

I'm in reading:

-Kitty Kelley's The Royals
which is banned for sale in the UK unabridged due to libel laws, includes details on their Nazi ties and German roots and how they sacrificed the Romanovs to save themselves, HM was conceived by artificial means, courtship of HM and PP which George VI was against, PP's visits to brothels and affairs, racism, and other uncomfortable things (don't know if they're true, but I'm about 20% through and it's interesting). review: http://www.salon.com/sept97/royalsb970917.html

-Anchee Min's Empress Orchid
Fictionalized autobiography of the last empress of China. Really good.

-Max Brooks' World War Z
An series of short stories of people who lived through a zombie apocalypse. Fun, but depressing in a weird way.

I devour books and have no attention span so those are the main ones I'm on right now. I'm totally bookmarking this thread for material later!

@Princess Alucard: I've heard good things about Alice Borchardt's Wolf series. She's Anne Rice's sister, but I don't know if their styles are similar. Never read them myself though, so I don't know how good they are...

Sir A. C. Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, Sign of the Four

And, as much as I *despise* to admit it, The Diana Chronicles. 

To redeem myself, The Autobiography of Mark Twain (really good book)
