on my nightstand, June 2011

I finally finished several great books in May and wanted to report back to your before showing you my reading list for June.

Interestingly enough I discovered 2 new authors and look forward to reading more of their completed works.  Went beyond my comfort zone (light historical romances) to embrace a few new story lines.

So here goes....
