Born within the sound of the Bow bells in London, Karen Lee Field was seven when her parents decided to move to the “Lucky Country” and settle in Sydney, Australia. Apart from enjoying time with her family and pets, Karen loves escaping to fantasy worlds — places where her sometimes ordinary life is transformed into an exciting adventure and her imagination is set free. Her debut children’s novel, Cat’s Eyes, was published in 2010 and was later released with the title, The Land of Miu, in November 2011. Her short stories appear in several anthologies. She currently lives on the south coast of NSW.

The Last Kingdom (The Saxon Stories, #1)The Last Kingdom (The Saxon Stories #1)

by Bernard Cornwell


My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars


Blurb: This is the exciting – yet little known – story of the making of England in the ninth and 10th centuries, the years in which King Alfred, his son and grandson defeated the Danish Vikings who had invaded and occupied three of England’s four kingdoms.


The story is seen through the eyes of Uhtred, a dispossess...

Karen Field is 9% done with Wintersmith: This is the second books I've obtained by this author. The first one was an ebook, and I didn't enjoy it. I thought listening to an audio book would be different, but it wasn't. I cannot torture myself any further with this story. Terry Pratchett books are just not my style.

I have read multiple fiction books in the past but I'm trying to cut down, especially since I'm meant to be reading for my talk.

Benjamin Solah I think I have a short attention span. Most of the books are of different types so depending on my mood, I'll read different books.

The Blogging Revolution is good at the moment because I was finding Pamuk too dense, and I have to read Bukharin for a Marxist reading group - so that's not really fun reading. My head wants to explode after each chapter but I'm learning heaps from it.


Benjamin Solah I'll gladly take credit *grin*

Benjamin Solah I see you've gotten into Goodreads again.

I think I've become addicted.
