The Brontes are the latest thing - not only Jude Morgan's novel but Denise Giardina's forthcoming one (Emily's Ghost) and Syrie James's upcoming Secret Diaries of Charlotte Bronte... add that to Laura Joh Rowland's Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte from earlier this year. That woman gets around.[/quote]

And secretly, too! That's the really impressive thing.

[quote=""Ariadne""]Annis, you beat me to announcing it - I just posted covers/synopses for a bunch of summer '09 titles on my blog. Lots to look forward to! I'll do an update when more publishers' summer catalogs are out.

[quote=""annis""]I really enjoy your Obscure Books section too, ariadne. It's almost impossible to find synopses of some of these older titles.[/quote]

Thanks, glad you like them!
One of these days I'll get back to reading again <sigh>

[quote=""annis""]Another good place for checking out forthcoming books is Sarah Johnson's "Reading the Past"blog[/quote]

LOVE LOVE LOVE Reading the Past. I only wish it was updated more ;)


The Virgin's Daughters look interesting. I wanted a book about Katherine Grey so this might fill that void :)
Emily's Ghost looks interesting as well.
The Wet nurse tale...I dunno..maybe.
The other Eden..holy not a historical dress, batman! I dunno..is it a mystery? If so blah...

I see more Victorian Era novels YAY.

Owl Killers?

Post by Caveowl » Wed December 17th, 2008, 11:52 pm

Is Maitland borrowing from David Coe, gyrehead, or are her Owl Killers a new, and possibly outrageous, threat to my kind?

The book I most eagerly await is by Patrick Rothfuss, "Wise Man's Fear."

Has anyone mentioned that Cunthia Harrod-Eagles has a new addition to her Morland series coming out? It's called The Foreign Field, and it's coming out in March. I have a lot of catching up to do!

Yeah, the cover on The Other Eden isn't so great. Too modern. I believe it's more a novel with spooky overtones than a straight mystery.

The cover for Siri Mitchell's Love's Pursuit is just beautiful - and almost the whole head is there!
