I have been doing a bit better with my reading lately, getting in a few more books than my recent average. I thought I would share that list with you.
(The pics are clickable links to Amazon)
I picked this up at the library Monday (I am also writing this on Monday. Shhhh!!) I'm not very far into it but I am already hooked. AND I've already been creeped out!!! LOVE IT!!!
One word, read NOS4A2 by Joe Hill before reading this to "get" a certain part. ;)
NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART! ;)
A WONDERFUL historical fiction book about Catherine the Great.
We follow the life of a bookbinders daughter as she enters the court of Empress Elisabeth. She is in the court when a young Sophie (soon to be Catherine) comes to be the bride of Elizabeth's nephew and next in line to the throne.
Absolutely captivating, but I wish I had known that the 2nd book wasn't out yet!!! LOL
I absolutely LOVED this book!!! I never realized how little I actually knew about the French Revolution!
I have such a great respect for Madame Tussaud and all that she endured.
This is absolutely the BEST titled book! I was completely and totally CREEPED out the entire time!!!
Unfortunately, I didn't realize until a few minutes ago that this was a sequel! WAH!!!! I had a feeling that I was missing a few things in the story, mainly to do with a couple of the lead characters. BUT even though I missed the first book, this was a very captivating and scary story!
We've all heard the story of Godiva's naked ride but do you know WHY she did it?? I have never heard the WHY of it. Not to say that this book is accurate, but now I have an IDEA of the WHY! ;) It was a very good story! I feel in love with the main characters and could barely put this book down.
Having Downton Abbey withdrawals???? Then this book is for YOU!!!!!
I screamed and cried in frustration all throughout this book!!!! I was aching to find out more when I closed the book. NOW I see that there are sequels!!! YAY!!! Thank you, Amazon! LOL
There are more... LOTS more.... If you want a longer list just click on my Goodreads box over on the right side. ;)
HAVE FUN READING!!!
