Don't really have any goals except participating in a lot of challenges and trying to read lots of books for fun instead of challenges.

How did you like The Lady of the Rivers Barbara?
Have you read The Kingmakers Daughter yet?

I have and I liked them both as single books. It's just that I am beginning to have my doubts about Gregory. I had this feeling before with the Tudor series and I have it now again with the Cousin's War series. She tells the story from different points of view and I think she interprets facts different and uses different facts or theories for each person. So each book isn't really part of a series with the same facts in each, but a seprate book with its own set of facts. And that is something that is starting to bother me.

I know what you mean
I feel the same, I tend to read the books as individuals... easier that way. And I read them as total fiction...
