#10-11: Devil Wears Prada and the Constant Princess  
#10: Devil Wears Prada.

So, I read it to get ready for the movie, and I'm sure its going to make a much better movie than it did a book. The characters have potential, but don't have the depth in a book that a movie would have. It's a very visual book - which doesn't quite come through well in the text. But it was a good jumping off point.

#11: Constant Princess.

Another misinterpretation of history, one that was compelling, but didn't necessarily hold up for me. In this story, Katherine, Henry VIII's first wife, comes from Spain, ambitious, entitled, and ready to marry Arthur and be princess of wales. A little too ambitious I would say... she makes a death bed promise to arthur that she would marry Henry and "create the england they dreamed of". Then waits seven years, not for the ambition of the ruling monarchs around her, but for her own. Little hard to follow her there....but all in all a quick and semi-decent read.
