Title: Babylon's Ashes
Series: The Expanse
By: James S. A. Corey
Narrated by: Jefferson Mays
Lenght: 19:58 ≈544pgs
Owned: 848 days
Rating: ★★★★½
Thoughts:
This is a series that I've been working my way through for a while. I enjoy them, but because I am so invested in the character it's taxing to read. I'm always worried someone I care about it going to die. Again.

This book has a LOT of information, and my knoladge of the time perior is lighter than I'd like. I'll likely read it again when I have a few other sources under my belt.

Title: Skyward
Series: Skyward

Title: Katherine of Aragon, the True Queen
Series: Six Tudor Queens
By: Alison Weir
Narrated by: Rosalyn Landor
Lenght: 22:31 ≈625pgs
Owned: 804 days
Rating: ★★★★
Thoughts:
From my knowledge of English history, the book seems to be a very faithful reenactment as it were. And a great reminder of the damage that can be done to the powerless when power is unchecked.
