I'm about to start "Passion" by Jude Morgan for a BOTM read, and for a bit of light relief, the next in the Agatha Raisin series, "There Goes the Bride".

Simon Mawer's The Glass Room. Wonderful novel that uses the history of a modernist house in Czechoslovakia to tell the story of the 20th century.

Just started... Bleak House by Charles Dickens.
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}

Should finish up The Queen of Last Hopes tomorrow. Got rather sidetracked this weekend on a project converting our "office" into a living space (and closing it off from the living room) for our daughter so that she can feel like she has some private space and can get away from us once in a while.

I read and own the softback ed of this book. It's an interesting read and the first one about Mme. Royale in a long time. I remember a question or two came up over it.
