I am busily reading through the Elly Griffith Ruth Galloway series. I had bought the first book in the series, but it didn't grab me at the time. Now I am gobbling up these books! :)

Just finished reading The Invisible Bridge by Julie Orringer for the second time. It follows a young Jewish Hungarian through the late 30's and through the war. It is another amazing novel that I will probably read again in a few years! :)

Just received a copy of Brian Wainwright's Within the Fetterlock , about the final year or so of Richard II's reign and Henry Lancaster's quest for the throne, as told through the eyes of Constance of York, who was related to both men.
