October 2014- What are you reading?

Post by Nefret » Wed October 1st, 2014, 2:55 am

It was time for a new thread.


I'm still reading Robin and the King.
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"

The Shadow Throne by Jennifer Nielsen (YA)
Final installment in her Ascendance trilogy

Also read The Last Duel by Eric Jager (NF)
The story of the last 14th century duel permitted by the French government. It's quite a page turner!

I got my copy of Through A Glass Darkly today. I remember browsing through this ten years ago, and it was so lush. Can't wait to read it!

I love that book. I'm reading the new Deanna Raybourn, Night of a Thousand Stars. I haven't read the Lady Julia books, but this heroine has a tie in to the family.

Just finished Night of a Thousand Stars by Deanna Raybourn. What a fun ride. She's got a perfect setup for a series, but it looks like DR is going back to Victorian mysteries with a new character. Pooh.
