It kind of tells you about it in the book. I am not sure I would want to eat it myself, unless I was desperate like the characters were.

If Diamondlil doesnt have it I found a few using a search and using the Cached. If we want to post them I suppose we could do it that way.

I think I have most of them. I'll try to put the list together over the weekend.

I do know that we have read A Rose for the Crown as Book of the Month before but given that we don't have any of the discussions left anymore I guess it can still be nominated and then if people vote for it they vote for it!

Thanks! If it's not too much trouble Divia, could you PM me the list? I'm computer illiterate LOL! I don't even know how to post an avatar much less what "cached" means! I'm literally bare bones!

I think one of the noms was The Last Queen by CW Gortner. If not I am going to nominate it myself.


I will close the thread off this time tomorrow and get the poll up and running.

Yes, The Other Queen was definitely nominated - I don't know who by, though.

The Other Queen by Philippa Gregory or The Last Queen by CW Gortner.

I am pretty sure it was The Last Queen.
