Chris Stanley (christinelstanley) | 206 comments OK OK OK - I know I have a trillion books already on the go, but I just had to take a sneaky peak at this one too! Now I might have to put everything aside to read it! Bummer!

Chris Stanley (christinelstanley) | 206 comments Finished The Red Queen, and I can't say I agree that it was better than the White Queen, but it was very good. The thing that got on my nerves, was the relentlessness of the ambition and self-righteousness. I couldn't warm to Margaret Beaufort at all, and I think that spoilt the enjoyment of it. Fabulous writing again from Philipa Gregory

well to me the red queen was a darker book which maybe why I liked it and look forward to the 3rd in the series the lady of the rivers

I think I read somewhere that there will be a few more in this series and it's not a trilogy at all. Problem is, I can't recall where I read it, have you heard anything like that?

Looks like we have the same edition (although mine is from the library and needs to back). Looks good. I felt she was one of the most interesting characters. I too am looking forward to it.

Chris Stanley (christinelstanley) | 206 comments Also checked out the TV Book show list and a few titles grabbed there too;
Even The Dogs
Tiger Hills
The News Where You Are
Bleed For Me
The Room appears on both lists and has been discussed at length on goodreads, but I can't say that I'm eager to read that one at all!
