Have a little window between book group reads so back to my re-read of Mists of Avalon, which I'm about a quarter of the way into.

Ravens of Avalon by Diana Paxson
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}

I'll be starting The Report by Jessica Francis Kane a little later. It's based on the worst civilian disaster of WWII when 173 people died in Bethnell Green tube station in London.

Have finally finished 'The Love Machine' by Jacqueline Susann, and now on 'The Life and Death of Anne Boleyn' by Eric Ives which was been sitting on Mt TBR for far too long :)
