    The Shell Seekers, by Rosamunde Pilcher. I'm not really feeling the love yet and may give up on it.

    The other day, I started the Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon on recommendation from a friend. I'm on the first book, The Iron King and I'm about 40 pages in. Really enjoying it so far.


    The Iron King – Philip the Fair – is as cold and silent, as handsome and unblinking as a statue. He governs his realm with an iron hand, but he cannot rule his own family: his sons are weak and their wives adulterous; while his red-blooded daughter Isabella is unhappily married to an English king who prefers the company of men.

    A web of scandal, murder and intrigue is weaving itself around the Iron King; but his downfall will come from an unexpected quarter. Bent on the persecution of the rich and powerful Knights Templar, Philip sentences Grand Master Jacques Molay to be burned at the stake, thus drawing down upon himself a curse that will destroy his entire dynasty…

    Today I started reading "The Count of Monte Cristo" by Dumas. I'm enjoying it so far. I am already interested in the characters. I know that I'm going to start getting really involved in it.

    Something I sometimes read in a book is "he went pale". I've never noticed anyone go pale in real life.

    As I begin reading this novel I think to myself, do such treacherous people exist in the real world? I think that yes, they do

    He's ambiguously racist though (due to his xenophobia and being a product of his time) so keep that in mind.

    I've seen that edition, it is very attractive!

    It's interesting that some people who live in times that are racist (or otherwise in some way deplorable) produce racist art, while others in the same circumstances produce art that challenges racism... it's interesting to see the differences

    The Life and Teaching of Jesus Christ, by The Rev. Jules Lebreton, SJ 1935: √The Chanaanitish Woman, 'Our Lords reserve--the woman's petition--Her prayer is heard'.
    Tough read, was translated from French to English...I believe some in incorrect context.

    Ah it's not really official/published stuff, but I am currently devouring adventure/action fanfics at a rapid rate. The average of which is usually about 50k+ words. Hopefully by the time i'm through the last batch of them, I can resume devouring new Sci-fi and Fantasy audiobooks. I kinda had trouble finding good ones that I had not read yet.

    I unfortunately cannot stand reading the same book twice, and I cannot do this with the majority of other media formats either...
