I have missed reading history books so have been trying to add more into my plans. Unfortunately, NetGalley had the ones I liked all in the same month lol. I'm looking forward to this month :)

I'm just listening to Hunting Ground -an elibrary audio- as soon as I finish it I can start Fireproof (so a few days). Anytime after that I can start it so just let me know :)

Tracey (trakka) | 1363 comments Wow, have you almost caught up on the In Death series?


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2440 comments I know...only a few more to go. And with the audio it slows me down a bit (getting them, downloading to iPod and finding time to listen). After I finish this I want to start Victoria Thompson's series.

Ooh you'll catch up to me in no time and then we could do a buddy read :-)


Kris - My Novelesque Life (mynovelesquelife) | 2440 comments That is incentive enough to read faster :)
