Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth by Susan Fraser King was really interesting. If this story is to be believed, then Shakespeare was just making everything up.
Really, aside from a few major events, it is completely different. Even those major events have a different aspect.
The writing is engaging, the characters are likeable. Even though it is historical fiction, there is no gratuitous sex. It is often sad, but always interesting.

This will be the summer reading book for my school this year. Let's see what it's about...

Storm books

Just finished A Bloody Storm, the last of the the three Castle/ Derrick Storm books. It's really one book in three parts. Each picks up exactly where the last leaves off, some things resolved, but most a cliffhanger.
They were enjoyable. And not just because I imagine them being read by Nathan Fillion.
The first installment is strictly limited to Storm's viewpoint. The second has a much wider point of view, and the third narrows back in. This made the second book a little jarring. It also increased my distrust of one of the characters simply because we never saw their point of view on anything. I really expected that character to be the big villain, but it didn't turn out that way.

Liked the books - would recommend them, especially to fans of the tv show.
