Somebody had to. :D


My book... The Snake, the Crocodile, and the Dog by Elizabeth Peters
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 enjoyed the E Peters series, especially the first few books. She has a great sense of humor.

I'm reading EC's The Champion and enjoying it very much.

That she sounds. On day I'll read it in order. And I'll be getting that EC book from the library soon.

I've just started "A Great and Terrible Beauty" by Libba Bray - YA Victorian gothic. And I've almost finished "The Glass Guardian" by Linda Gillard.

Esther by Norah Lofts. Very short (150 pages) and turns out it was written for young adults, so a nice easy read after 1984.

The Queen Mother by William Shawcross. I requested the new bio on Edward VII and have the Queen Elizabeth bio on my bedside table which means I am 3 books away from completing my King Arthur-Queen Elizabeth II reading challenge.

Of course many books have come out since I started so I may just start all over again :-)

I'm on William and Mary and I already know I'm going back to read books I found that I didn't know about the first time or came out since.
