Just began the Queen's Lover by Francine Du Plessix Gray.  It is about Axel von Fersen,  Queen Marie Antoinette's paramour.   Wellwritten and entertaining if you enjoy historical fiction.

Really? I've been looking at that one but for some reason I haven't gotten it yet. Maybe I'll put it in my wish list...


Assume nothing. Question everything. And start thinking.

I've just finished listening to a series of audiobooks by David Rosenfelt, read by Grover Gardner.  It's about a dog-loving attorney, Andy Carpenter, and his associates; and it's filled with intrigue, wit, humor, and warmth.  Enjoyed them so much!  Wish Mr. Rosenfelt and Mr. Gardner would crank them out much faster.

I just picked up the following at the library:

The King's Witch by Cecelia Holland

Viper Wine by Hermione Eyre

 

Light and indulgent reading about periods in history which I already know quite a bit about.  It is soothing to read these  kinds of books  when there is a great deal of turmoil to deal with.

I'm now reading Above by Isla Morley.  I sometimes wonder where authors get their ideas.  The book is about a girl who is kidnapped & kept in a bomb shelter because Armaggeden (spelling?) is approaching.  Can't wait for the end to find out if she ever gets out.  Right now she's in there 6 yrs.

 

I finished reading Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind which was so intense I have to wait awhile before starting the 2nd book of the 3 book series.  If you like scifi/fantasy this is the author.

I HAVE A SIMILAR QUIRK(& THE USE OF ONLY ONE HAND,) SO A BOOK OF OVER 300 PAGES IS VERY DIFFICULT TO HOLD & READ IN BED, AS IS MY CUSTOM. BUT IF IT'S AN INCREDIBLE BOOK ( LIKE "WAR & PEACE", FINNEGAN'S WAKE" OR THE COMPLETE WORKS OF ALLEN GINSBERG, I WILL TRY. READ ON!
