I am almost done work and will need some books to read during my summer break. I'll have to check that one out!  Thumb up

Principessa...that's the one!

Anne...It's really out of my normal reading comfort zone, but if you like thrillers, I really recommend it.  I'm STILL thinking about the twist at the end, and how the author really manipulated my thinking!  Usually you can figure out twists in thrillers because you just think of the most outlandish twist, and that's usually it.  But this one really knocked me for a loop!

Edit:  Anne (or anyone!), if you read it, shoot me a PM and let me know what you thought of it!

Just bought it on my Kindle - can't start to read it. I love books that keep you on your toes. I'll let you know what I think once I'm done it!

These days I finished the Dutch version of The Windsor Knot by S.J. Bennett in approximately 2 hours. To be honest, I was a bit disappointed, it couldn't fascinate me as much as I expected and/or thought.

I just finished a biography of Wallis Windsor, called The Duchess of Windsor: The Uncommon Life of Wallis Simpson, which I enjoyed.  The author (Greg King) was a little more gentle with Wallis than some other authors or historians have been about her, but somehow I didn't mind.  All the known facts seemed to be there, just rather more sympathetically rendered.   I thought the chapters on her youth and her first marriage were especially good.   It was originally published in 1999 but the version I read had updated afterwords.

There sleeps Titania sometime of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight."
