Just picked up Diane Haeger's new novel "The Queen's Mistake" and MCB's "The Tudor Rose" at Borders. So excited! I wanted to get Mercedes Lackey's new book but as it is only in hardcover I couldn't afford it. :(

Just finished the Queen's Mistake, and I was underwhelmed. But Tudor Rose is a classic, IMO!

Dang! I was looking forward to reading that. Lately it seems the HF I want to read are turning out to be duds :P

Amanda, post a review of that when you've read it? It's been on my wish list for a while, but I can't quite push the 'buy' button...

My TBR list is growing!

Arrived today -- David Blixt's The Master of Verona and a mystery set in WW2 Berlin, Stettin Station.

(Oh, also the new Lolcats book ---How to Take Over Teh Wurld -- but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count...)

So not historical fiction, but I'm on my way to Borders to buy ESPN The Magazine's The Body issue.

I just did something very bad - I bought a copy of Fitzempress Law. I found a copy for a really good price, but still more than I usually pay for a used book. My 19th wedding anniversary is next week - so Happy Anniversary to me!

(And it was still less than I"ve paid for most of my shoes! ;) )
