Bernard Cornwell: The Lords of The North

It's the third book of The Last Kingdom series.

Very exciting!

Just finished 'Stalin, The Court of the Red Tsar' by Simon Sebac Montefiore.
It's a detailed account of the life of Joseph Stalin, his inner circle and his family during the worst time in Russian history.
It is baffling to read how this monster, who killed millions of his own people, was also a husband and father.

...great read.
If you like that, you should take a look at Down and Out in Paris and London.
Another Orwell classic.

I’m not far into The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk & already finding it triggering. :evil: I wasn’t expecting that. I’m not ready to give up yet though. I believe there will be some helpful bits that may make it worthwhile to finish, so we’ll see...
