I will definitely be watching this come fall.

Right now I'm watching The White Queen. I was so excited about the show since Spartacus is no more. Then I found out it's based on Phillipa Gregory novels! Oh well, at least I get my period piece fix every week.

I read this years ago and loved it! It went onto my special "to be read again" bookshelf.

I'm reading Cleopatra's Moon by Vicky Alvear Shecter. So far it's OK to decent. Prior to this I read Confessions of Marie Antoinette by Juliet Grey which I thoroughly enjoyed.

And hi to anyone who remembers me. And anyone who doesn't! :)

Clearly Sasson's version looked lighter and more romantic, not to say it's bad, but I considered it as lately I've been less and less tolerant of dry novels t...

I just bought a kindle and am in the process of stocking it with books. I'm interested in reading about Robert Bruce. I know that Nigel Tranter's book is supposed to be excellent but there's another author Gemini Sasson that I'm not sure about. Has anyone read any of this author's work? They look a ...

I read The Innocent and really liked it. If I remember correctly it was the first of a trilogy but the others were just ok.

Ugh! That poor little girl :( ! That book sounds like "101 Ways to Abuse Your Child". The authors and anyone who uses those methods should be in jail. Disgusting!

[quote=""MLE""]Finished Mistress of Rome -- liked it. I don't care enough about the Doomsday book to finish it.
