Instead of the It's Monday, What are you Reading post, I'm doing this this week.
I'm nearly finished with The Golden Mean (Amazon.com link) by Annabel Lyon. I'm enjoying the book overall, it's well written as a Giller Prize finalist, but the story is a bit brutal/gory in places. On the other hand, that fits the time period well.
I'm also reading The Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare
