I love reading and there is nothing I like better than finding something that really sparks my imagination.  I particually love historical fiction and romances - not very high-brow I know but I just love slipping back to bygone times. I think my university lecturers would have disowned me if they had known this!
One of my favorites is Elizabeth Chadwick as she writes about one of my favorite periods 11th-15th century, which was a time of great turmoil and strife in the UK.  Her heroines are always clever, perky courageous, her heroes are always handsome, smart and brave.  Just what you want on a miserable rainy day! 
I`m currently reading `The Other Boleyn Girl` by Philippa Gregory, which although isn`t a reflection of the actual events, which are still murky and still not completely agreed upon, it is a super read with twists and turns, romance, pain, unrequented love.  Spookily enough the film version is on BBC2 this Friday and the BBC is currently running a Tudor season and have adapted the White Queen for the telly - so if that`s your bag - tune in!
