So much to read, so little time to do it in, you know? Here’s what’s been added to my TBR list recently:
Remarkable Creatures, by Tracy Chevalier. Historical fiction that’s coming out in the first week of the new year. I’m receiving this through Amazon Vine and I’ll be excited when it gets here—I’ve loved some of her other novels.
The Kristen Lavransdatter books, by Sigrid Unset. Actually, I think I heard about it through one of you bloggers, but I can’t remember who—sorry! Historical fiction set in 14th century Scandinavia, written about 75 years ago. This week I bought a copy of the new translation.
The Glass Blowers, by Daphne Du Maurier. This has been floating around on my TBR list for a while, actually; but while at the library looking for a copy of The Scapegoat (also a Daphne book), I came across this one, written about some of Du Maurier’s ancestors in the 18th century.
The King Must Die, by Mary Renault. Bought this cheaply at my library’s fall sale last weekend. Historical fiction set in ancient Greece, a period I’m rather deficient on.
Half Life, by Roopa Farooki. Coming out next spring, I believe; it’s Farooki’s third novel. I enjoyed her first novel, the second not so much, but I’m looking forward to the third.
The Pindar Diamond, by Katie Hickman. Another one of those books I hear about from other bloggers. From the author of The Aviary Gate, coming out next summer.
O Juliet, by Robin Maxwell. Another historical; coming to me through Amazon Vine. It’s a telling of the Romeo and Juliet story.
High Wages, by Dorothy Whipple. Added this to my list after reading the Persephone Biannual. Since I loved The Priory, and have a couple of her other books in my possession, I felt that I must read this… and some point.
Child of the Morning, by Pauline Gedge. Novel about Queen Hatshepsut that’s being re-released in April.
The Botticelli Secret, by Marina Fiorato. It’s being offered through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program. I really liked her first book, her second not so much.
