Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.
War and Peace - my review here
Demelza - I enjoyed this just as much as Poldark, the first book in the series which I reviewed here. Almost all the best lines of the BBC adaption, all those wonderful Lizzie Bennet-like comebacks, are taken from the books.
Malice at the Palace - my review here
The Feline Affair - my review here
Voices in the Ocean - my review here
That's Not English - my review here
Lafayette in the Somewhat United States - my review here
Hannah Arendt: A Life in Dark Times - my review here
Ivory Vikings - my review here
Mrs. Roosevelt's Confidante: A Maggie Hope Mystery - Set during WWII, this is book 5 in the series and I loved it, but since I read it as a NetGalley ARC I'll post its review closer to the publication date. I will say that while not avoiding serious issues it's much less dark than book 3--Maggie's in the US this time and one of the characters meets Walt Disney!
