SonjaMarie--"The Reluctant Empress: A Biography of Empress Elisabeth of Austria" by Brigitte Hamann..."

I can't find that book anywhere! When I look on Amazon it simply says not available. I've been wanting to read about Sissi for years but can't fnd any books available anywhere. Where did you buy your copy if you don't mind me asking?

Susan--"Going to start A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin..."

Be prepared to be shocked and outraged...That's the book I threw across the room!...But then I recovered from my fury and read on....

Tanzanite--"Currently reading The Lady of the Rivers....."

Let me know what you think of it? I hated it and couldn't finish it.

Brenna--"I finished Lionheart yesterday! YAHOO!..."

I am sooooo jealous of Brenna right now.... :mad: grrrr.....lol. :p

You can find it here:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/3548354793

It's under "The Reluctant Empress", not the full title I gave.

There is one for $7.95

Good luck!

I thought the one that had people hurling it across rooms was the next one? This one is another shocker? :confused:

The last 200 pages begins the desire to throw the book across the room. Song of Swords is when I actually threw it.

Oh and I started EC's To Defy the King last night as I'm still on a HF kick and not ready to read anything else. So far pretty good!

I don't think it's the worst thing she's written, but I don't like it as well as some of her others.
