New novel about Cassandra Austen, Jane's older sister. The story opens with Cassandra visiting an old family friend in 1840. A comparable title I read from the library was Cassandra and Jane by Jill Pitkeathley (2008 US release)

Binge reading the "Nine Realms" series by Sarah Kozloff from the library
I've already read the 1st installment A Queen in Hiding and glad to have the rest of the series all together.

I’ve just started Biloxi by Mary Miller, a contemporary story about a man who takes in a dog after his wife leaves him. I enjoy books about animals.

I’m also reading via Pigeonhole The Perfect Life by Valerie Keogh, a psychological thriller. It started off slow but it’s now picked up pace.
currently reading: My Books on Goodreads

I started reading The Old Testament- A Very Short Introduction by Michael Coogan.
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}
