I'm currently reading book number 3 of The Accursed Kings series by Maurice Druon. (translated from French to English)
Really happy to have discoverd this, it's my one of my favourite series so far, if not the best!
It's about the hundred year's war between France and England. You can say it's the real life Game of Thrones basically, it has a lot of intriges and conspiracies. Bankers and high players in the field that are using the royal family as their pawns, such as the count of Valois and the Lombard family. It's a bit difficult to know who is who sometimes, cause practically everybody is called "Charles", "Philip" and "Louis". But that's the thing, it all really happened, it features real life people such as Louis X and Marguerite of Burgundy. It's a must read for history buffs or people who like non-fiction set in the middle ages.
Currently reading the power of simple prayer by joyce meyer. Been wanting to pray more often and I have been getting a lot of out of it as well. Not many of you may be interested in that of course. Prayer gives me hope.
I just finished Privateers and privateering by Statham, Edward Phillips.
Now I just started reading Life Aboard a British Privateer in the Time of Queen Anne: Being the Journal of Captain Woodes Rogers by Woodes Rogers.
