Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier
It's a fantasty novel, which incorporates fairytales such as the 12 dancing princesses (or whatever it's called)
It's a nice book, none of that twilight paranormal/fantasy crap!
I recently finished The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. It was (in short) 800+ pages of brooding, nihilistic brilliance and now anything I read seems terrible because it never quite lives up to my expectations...
