[quote=""Ludmilla""]Taking a break from historicals at the moment and reading Me Before You by Jojo Moyes and really like it so far. It's not my usual kind of fiction, but I have a feeling I'll want to read more by this author. I think only two or three of her books are available here in the states, though (at least as Kindles), and they are on the pricey side for ebooks. This story is totally worth it, though, based on what I've read so far (roughly half).[/quote]

Oh I loved that book and chose it as the best book I read in 2012. It is not a romance in the typical sense....I wont say too much except to say you wont remain detached....I will also be buying more books from this author.

Keturah and Lord Death, by Martine Leavitt, a YA story which is more fairytale than historical, though set in a generic medieval period.

Sounds intriguing. I skipped over to Amazon and then decided to buy the Audible download. :)

Books are flying like crazy this week. Another one bites the dust, not sure what I'll pick up next.

Thankfully only one flew this month, I'm usually very good at picking books that are not wallbangers.

I'm reading a very interesting book about LEGOS among my 16 books at the moment.

I'm still back a few centuries, nearly done with Elizabeth I!
