Currently Reading: The Last Kingdom
I'll admit, I rarely watch TV unless I'm binging Time Team or some other history show that I find interesting. I was told by several people that "The Last Kingdom" was a good show and I should watch it. I just had other things to do. I found the first book in the series quite awhile ago and put it on my Goodreads list.
It begins with a compelling introduction to the narrator (also the main character) and then dove right in to the story. Murder, war, an invasion, a kidnapping!? That's just the first chapter. I was hooked on the story from page one and I can not seem to make enough time to keep reading.
So far, I'm only a few chapters in and I find myself often wondering what's going to happen next. Every chance I get, I'll go through a little bit and I always groan when I have to put it down. This book is great. I can not wait to dive into the rest of the series. How many do I have to go? Twelve? Thirteen?
I just have to ask myself one question - what took me so long to read these books!?
