Finished The Infinite Plan by Isabel Allende--liked it, but not as much as her HF. Also finished Manifold Time by Stephen Baxter--SF which was relentlessly depressing, but managed to pull off a positive ending (I think.) Will start on Catherine de Medici: Renaissance Queen of France next!

Finished Britain's Royal Families and liked it. Haven't read about pre Edward the Confessor kings or Scottish kings so that was interesting. Maybe it's just me but was little confused with the huge lists.

Now reading The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. Haven't gotten far but starting to like it.

I've got two going, A Rage Against Heaven by Fred Mustard Stewart. US Civil War and this is one of those male authors who I'd prefer not to write sex scenes :mad:

Also, Helen Hollick's I Am The Chosen King. My, this ARC has a lot of typos. A lot :(
