I want to read all the books. This never happens. It’s one of the few times I am comfortable with using the word never. Here are a five of the many I am bummed to have not read…yet.
Adam McComber’s The White Forest got decidedly mixed reviews from bloggers whose opinions I trust, but still this is one that I want to try for myself at some point. It’s historical and supposedly has a Gothic element. Two things I really, really like.
Right, so we know that I don’t care much for contemporary romance, but Hester Browne’s The Runaway Princess promises a glimpse into the lives of non-British royalty, and so I’m curious.
With Thomas Norman DeWolf & Sharon Morgan’s book titled, Gather At the Table: The Healing Journey of a Daughter of Slavery and a Son of the Slave Trade , the name says it all. So curious as to what they talked about, and the labels they chose to apply to themselves.
I just finished and reviewed another book where Napoleon is a marginally featured in the plot, In Jo Graham’s The General’s Mistress, he seems to have a bigger role here, with Robespierre added in for good measure.
Other Press consistently puts out great books. The latest on my radar is Peter Hoeg’s The Elephant Keeper’s Children, a novel telling the story of three children who have eccentric parents, one a vicar and the other an artisan. When their parents go missing, the children fear that it is because of their aggressive recruiting tactics to boost church attendance. Oh, snap.
