Kasthu's 2014 List

Post by Kasthu » Mon December 8th, 2014, 9:16 pm

It's been a looooong time since I last posted in this forum, but just wanted to share what I've read this year (in chronological order; it's a skimpy list considering i've been reading memoir and other nonfiction in preparation for writing my own book):

1. Outlander, by Diana Gabaldon (re-read)
2. Hungry Hill, by Daphne DuMaurier
3. Captain Alatriste, by Arturo Perez Reverte
4. The Shivering Sands, by Victoria Holt
5. Whisper of Jasmine, by Deanna Raybourn
6. Cashelmara, by Susan Howatch
7. Fortune's Rocks, by Anita Shreve (re-read)
8. Silent in the Grave, by Deanna Raybourn (re-read)
9. Jamaica Inn, by Daphne Du Maurier
10. City of Jasmine, by Deanna Raybourn
11. The Scarlet Pimpernel, by Baroness Orczy
12. An Expert in Murder, by Nicola Upson
13. The House at Riverton, by Kate Morton (re-read)
14. The Accursed, by Joyce Carol Oates (though given her style of writing it's really a mix of genres)
15. The Witching Hour, by Anne Rice (re-read)
16. Morgan's Run by Colleen McCullough
17. Dragonfly in Amber, by Diana Gabaldon (re-read)
18. Voyager, by Diana Gabaldon (re-read)
19. Drums of Autumn, by Diana Gabaldon (re-read)
20. The Valley of Decision, by Marcia Davenport

Lots of re-reads, I'm noticing! And lots of chunky novels, too (at least 8 or 9 of these are 800-plus pages).

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Good to see you back, Kasthu! And that list doesn't look skimpy to me.
