Me too! I enjoyed a couple of the earlier books first, but I absolutely fell for Memory. Sadly it was just 
before a 2 month backpacking trip so I couldn't read any others until I got back :)

I enjoy Mirror Dance for similar reasons as Memory. But I also adore A Civil Campaign, for the same 
reasons as Robyn (?) - it's reminiscent of other authors I love and is so funny! Which is why I felt a bit let 
down by Diplomatic Immunity. I liked it, but it felt like one of the earlier books.
