Reviews and bookish conversation with author Samantha Wilcoxson.
If I am lost, you will find me in medieval England.
You can also find me - and my books - on my blog.
Well, this doesn't look like a bad month of reading unless you know that I DNF'd one of these and one of them is my own book . . .
Audio books saved my reading goal this month:
A Burnable Book
The Light Between Oceans
A Trick of the Light
The Brutal Telling
The Bonfire of the Vanities
Without these books taking me through housework, endless taxiing of children, and home improvement projects, I would be way behind. Unfortunately, A Burnable Book was the only one that was really good . . . and that was a reread. The Bonfire of the Vanities I abandoned rather quickly.
How to be a Tudor was the best read of the month. It is unique, insightful, and a priceless resource for anyone who wants to really understand lifestyles and daily life in the 16th century.
I didn't feel that my own book was eligible for the best read of the month award, but I am happy to be through the editing of Faithful Traitor, at least until I hear back from my wonderful beta readers.
I'm actually almost through a third Armand Gamache book for the month, but I'm not enjoying it. I will leave saying more for my eventual review, but it may be time for me to give this series a break.
Now to plan all the glorious reading that I will get to do in April with starting research for a new book and two vacations this month. Bibliophile heaven!
