    I just got this from the library. Apparently Kris has always been an opportunistic whore, even going back to her teenage years.

    Just a heads up for the Hunger Games readers, Suzanne Collins is dropping a prequel called The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes. Its due out next Spring and its supposed to be the story of how the districts were formed right after the war that destroyed society in the first place. It should be interesting.

    I’m working my way through the Westphail trilogy by Duncan Lindsey about a policeman in Scotland.

    Just finished Far From the Madding Crowd, which is one of Thomas Hardy's cheerier books (only one dead baby!) with a rare happy ending.

    Now I'm juggling the fifth book in the Saxon Stories (which The Last Kingdom is based on) and The Rise and Fall of Ancient Egypt, which I'm having trouble putting down.

    Yeah, I'd be interested in the Saxon novels, too. Is it Bernard Cornwell?

    I'm really starting to worry about myself. I can't focus enough to read anymore. It's taking me months to finish that book I mentioned in the other thread and that's just not me.

    Sorry, yes Nov you're correct on both counts.

    Oh, and I'm also reading Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott. I love a rollicking good adventure, and there are enough great hero moments to make you punch the air or hiss at the baddies.

    I'm going vintage and rereading Busman's Honeymoon by Dorothy L Sayers. I only picked it up because I needed a fifth book (they were five for a quid in a charity warehouse) but it has really put me in the mood for some more old fashioned, polite, stiff upper lip 'orrible murders.

    I guess that even I need a break from blood drenched smut now and then.

    I read The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, author of the Night Circus. Both are exquisite and defy description.

    I had this on hold at the library and just started it yesterday and already read about half of it. I love her writing style (even with the first person present...but that works really well for this).
