I just barely started Pig Island by Mo Hayder.
However, my mind and heart are still tied up with K. j. a. Wishnia's Filomena Buscarsela series. This is one of the best series I have ever read.

Matt Beynon Rees, The Collaborator of Bethlehem
I just started it late last night, and then quickly fell asleep on top of it, so no opinons yet.

Because of my financial situation - poor - I try and read books from the library as much as possible. My library often tortures me, however, by not having all the books in a series.

K. J. A. Wishnia, 23 Shades of Black
I spent soooo many hours glued to the NCAA tournament this weekend that I'm having withdrawal symptoms today. But my team survived to play another day - Friday! - and I can hang on until then. Go Heels!
