Hello everybody! I've come with arms full of book recommendations. 2, anyways; they are: The Secret History of the Pink Carnation and The Masque of the Black Tulip by Lauren Willig. They are the first 2 books out of a series containing 5 books.

They're actually amazing, I read them each in only a day or so, or a few hours. They're basically about what happens to a group of English spies during the Napoleonic Wars/around that time (late 1700's into the first decade of the 1800's). It's kind of loosely based on spies such as the Scarlet Pimpernel.
Either way, the books are insanely and irrevocably hilarious, romantic, entertaining, suspensful, interesting, sexy, even...oh and there's tons of adventure!

So other than this recommendation, let this be a LAUREN WILLIG FRIENDING MEME.
I've looked all over livejournal and I can't find a single community devoted to any of her books, or her personally! So I was just wondering if I was the only one out here who genuinely liked her, or the only one who would join and participate in a community on her/her amazing books.

I like Lauren Willig's books! Part of me finds them silly, but they're also very endearing and make me smile. :) Can't wait for the 6th book, but it probably won't come out until next year, alas.
