I'm glad I'm not the only one who didn't like GOT!
It wasn't terrible, but dang the violence and the meandering narrative and the sexualizing of children and the names that are not quite actual names, but almost---grrr! was totally over it by the end of the first book.
Christian historical romance when I was a teenager.
Bodie Thoene's series set during WW2 was my favorite - they're old now but they each have a city name in them. Like Prauge Counterpoint and Vienna Prelude.
The Russians is a pretty good series too, by Michael Phillips and Judith Pela
I'm currently reading The Acts of King Arthur and his Knights by John Steinbeck. I'm really enjoying it, a very cool update.
Last book I finished was Bossypants by Tina Fey.....which was funny. Can't really say much more for it than that. It was perfectly nice and fine and funny, but I can't say i got much more out of it than just a laugh or two.Olivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve

My copy is called The Book of Negroes, and it seems to go by that name in Canada and the UK, but is called Someone Knows My Name in the US, Australia, and NZ. Maybe there was some discomfort with the word "negroes"? I used the other name because that's how I've seen it referenced online most of the time.
@Kala_Way: I really enjoyed those Bodie Thoene novels set during WWII!Miriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Marilla ~ SarahPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

Stone and The Goldfinch is next on my list.
Unfortunately I have never been able to read more than one book at a time. Aside from books assigned for class that is, I'm currently stuck in a business themed lit class... not fun.Ben & Lainy
