NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

Coming Up. . .




I'm sooooo excited! I just got my first advance copy of a book I've been dying to read! The story of Louise de la Valliere, mistress of Louis XIV, Mistress of the Sun by Sandra Gulland (of Josephine B. Triology fame) comes out on Tuesday, June 3, and I've got it in my paws right now! Guess what I'm doing this weekend? :-) I promise to report to you just as soon as I get the final page turned. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out Ms. Gulland's official web site for more information about the author and her work.

I'm off to France in the time of The Sun King. . .

Congrats! And if you enjoy French historical fiction, Mistress of the Revolution is set right before and during the French Revolution (duh!), and I loved it. :)

I'll wait for your review on this one!

Andi ~ Thanks! I'm on the list for Philippa Gregory's new one, too. It's going to be a good summer! :-)

Eva ~ I'm on the library waiting list for that one. I remember seeing your review for it, and it looks fabulous!

I am jealous, jealous, jealous! I would love to be reading this book too!

Teddy Rose said...

I have 100 pages to go and then I'll be writing my review. It will be fun to compare reviews with you. I will say that you are in for a treat.

Marg,
This book has you written all over it!

I agree with Marg, this book sounds perfect for you. I also understand how you feel. It's cool to get an ARC, but when it's one that you had your eye on, that's a wow moment! :)

Lezlie said...

Katherine ~ I will, for sure!

Marg ~ You won't have to wait long! It should be stores on Tuesday.

Teddy Rose ~ You have it, too? Cool! I'm so glad you seem to like it! I'm hoping to have something written by Monday.

J. Kaye ~ It is totally a WOW moment! I can't wait to dig in!

This one sounds good! Can't wait to hear how you like it. I'm reading a historical book about Marie Antoinette's daughter, Marie therese. Its been pretty good so far!

Kim ~ I read about half yesterday, and I'm really liking it a lot. Someone else said that Marie Therese book was good also. I need to check that one out.
