The Orphanmaster by Jean Zimmerman. I'm only two chapters into the book, but it's very intriguing. This is from Goodreads:

"Itís 1663 in the tiny, hardscrabble Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, now present-day southern Manhattan. Orphan children are going missing, and among those looking into the mysterious state of affairs are a quick-witted twenty-two-year-old trader, Blandine von Couvering, herself an orphan, and a dashing British spy named Edward Drummond....

Jean Zimmerman brings New Amsterdam and its surrounding wilderness alive for modern-day readers with exacting period detail."

Invasion of the Tearling, 2nd book in the Queen of the Tearling series by Erika Johansen. Liked the first, liking this one too. Just anxious that the final (?) book doesn't come out until June. And I needed something light and fun (and short!) after Atlas Shrugged.

Side note: absolutely hated The Carrie Diaries. The show was cute before the CW cancelled it, but the book was just horrible.

May need to reread the Outlander series. I miss so much on previous reads. I happened upon this series via my public library. Gabaldon's released the second Outlandish Companion. Bummed my library doesn't have it yet.

I bought the second Companion on Nook, but I think it would be much better in hard copy format...the graphics for some of the items, like family trees and some of the maps, are really hard to read on the Nook, and you can't zoom in. Also, I think a book format works better for a reference type resource...it's a pain to skip around and go to the spot you want with the Nook.

I'm rereading the series, and I'm a little ways into Written in my Own Heart's Blood.
