September 2014: What are you reading?

Post by Ludmilla » Tue September 2nd, 2014, 5:28 pm

Didn't see the new month posted yet, so thought I'd start one.

I read Emma Drummond's Forget the Glory over the weekend. Liked it a lot.

BTW - don't know of admin issues apply to this, but can a moderator sticky September and unsticky July and August reading? It will make the monthly thread easier to find.

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.

Whoops, I guess starting this thread is my job. Mea culpa, and thanks for starting, Ludmilla.
I'm reading book 3 in Gwen Bristow's Plantation Trilogy (actually more a family saga than a trilogy becaus there are 2 generations between each novel), This Side of Glory. WWI Louisiana.
Excellent, but Bristow always is.

Still reading The Count of Monte Cristo.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I found my copy of Jewel of the Seven Stars by Bram Stoker. I haven't read it since high school.
