I'm reading Alexander the Great- His Life and His Mysterious Death by Anthony Everitt (NF).
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}

I was disappointed with my last book, so will try an old friend, the Rivers of London series, as I still haven't read False Value.

I’m still reading Cunning Women by Elizabeth Lee, a story about witches set in the 17thC. I had to put it down temporarily whilst I read another review book which had a read by date on it! I do get myself in a muddle sometimes, juggling books.

I’m also reading The Fields by Erin Young via Pigeonhole. It’s a thriller set in Iowa. I don’t think it’s quite to my liking. I’m finding it a bit slow with too many political bits.
