New month new thread. I'm still not reading much, and not historical.
At home with a good book and the cat...
...is the only place I want to be

That is on my reading list. How is it?

I'm currently reading The Girl in the Tower by Katherine Arden.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!
- "Into Battle"
{Ensiferum}

So far, it's good. I'm about 2/3 in to the novel now.

I'm between novels, having just finished and greatly enjoyed Barbara Kingsolver's Unsheltered. I'm deciding among three ARCs:

ES Thomson, The Blood (mystery series about a female apothecary in Victorian London)
Abir Mukherjee, Smoke and Ashes (mystery series about a British detective in India, with a native assistant)
Elizabeth Fremantle, The Poison Bed (thriller about a husband and wife in 1615 who are both accused of murder)

Which will it be? Any suggestions?
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
