Finally I read a slew of really engrossing and well written books! Don't think I'm going to reach my goal of reading 52 this yr because of buying and selling a house, but at least they've been amazing lately :)

Let me preface this by saying I have no formal education or training in English history, but from the various novels I've read about the Wars of the Roses, the most recent being 'The Virgin Widow', my view on Richard III is favorable and probably romanticized. Going on gut instinct alone, I like to ...

I'm in a reading slump :( After 2 fantastic novels (To The Tower Born and The Color of Light) I've started 3 new ones, each of which I couldn't finish. I give a book 50-60 pgs before I decide "I'm just not that into you". That's been the case with the last 3. So frustrating.

I finally got a Kindle and of course I love it! Now I can read anywhere. I only buy free or inexpensive (<$3) books but soooo convenient. I'm always a few yrs behind the "tech wagon" LOL

'The Golden Hour' was one of the BEST novels I've read in a long time. A coming of age story of a girl in Italy during the German occupation in WW2. Beautifully written, multi story levels, and just wonderfully engaging. Highly recommend!!!
