The Book Post

As promised, here's me sharing my book purchases from last night.

Right now, I'm trying to finish The Fiery Cross which is the latest in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I can not recommend this series enough, it is excellent! If you haven't read the books yet, the first one is Outlander. I'm not sure how I'd categorize it -- I've seen it in the SF section, Romance, and Historical Fiction. I'd probably say it's all three and quite unique. It's got as much sex as it does warfare and politics.

Now, on to the new books!

A few years a go, a friend recommended the "Master & Commander" series, but I forgot the title/authour. Then I saw a poster for the new Russel Crowe moive, and realized those were the books! So, I got the first book in the series, Master and Commander (the movie is based on the 11th book, I believe). I also got The Last Jihad, which had been on my wish list forever, so I figured it was time to get it. I also got The Sight (I was attracted by the cover and I love wolves), Rise to Rebellion (I'm on an American history kick), & Ruled Britannia (I love alternate histories, and Harry Turteldove does it better then just about anyone).

I shall report on them as I go.
