50 Shades of Grey, of course!!! I'm kidding.

The last books I bought were The Life Of Pi and PS I Love You.

Loved The life Of Pi, read it in a matter of days!!

The Twelve, the second book of "The Passage" trilogy, one of the best books I've read in a while

Re: What Is The Last Book or Books You Bought?

I got quite a batch for Christmas this year:

1. The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
2. The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly
3. The Tigress of Forli: Caterina Sforza by Elizabeth Lev
4. Madame de Pompadour by Nancy Mitford
5. Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal by Christopher Moore
6. Empress of the Seven Hills by Kate Quinn
7. The Queen of Last Hopes by Susan Higgenbottom
8. The Warrior Queens by Antonia Fraser
9. A Fatal Waltz by Tasha Alexander
10. Lucrezia Borgia by Sarah Bradford

Can you tell I'm a history major?
And I read Lamb a few years ago as a borrowed book and enjoyed it so much I wanted my own.

"A storm of swords", of the "Song of Ice and Fire" saga. I'm loving it so far.

That's what the man in the bookshop said! He also said 'at least it's not 6 bottles of whisky you've got there'
