Vampires? wow, I haven't read any vampire books yet, but they seem to be everywhere. I'm planning ot read Twilight or the Colleen Gleason one, at some point.
I loved Shakespeare's Landlord and hope to read some more in that series.
Great picks; there are so many books to read.

They're everywhere right now, it's crazy! Twilight is AWE-SOME! Crazy good. Read it now!!! I once had a teen at my library scold me for not being at home right then reading it when I told her I'd picked it up. That I had to work did not matter in the face of such greatness. :)

I believe that Shakespeare's Landlord ended up on the TBR list because you blogged about it. :)

You're off to a great start!

I love southern fiction. Have you tried any of the Southern Sisters books by Anne George or any of the Biggie books by Nancy Bell?

A mix of southern and vampire I enjoyed were the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris (Same author as the Shakespeare books)

Sharon - I've been hearing lots of great things about all of Charlaine Harris' books, so I'll probably read more of her after Shakespeare's Landlord. But I haven't heard of the other two - I'll have to investigate!
