Philippa Gregory – The Women of the Cousins’ War (S/AZ/BL)
This one’s non-fiction, which I don’t usually read, but I adored the Cousins’ War trilogy and found the women featured in them to be very interesting and wanted to find out more. As I also love Philippa Gregory’s writing, the publication of this book seemed the perfect opportunity for me to delve a little deeper.
Patrick deWitt – The Sisters Brothers (G/AZ/BL)
I don’t usually read westerns, so this one is something completely different for me and so far (only a couple of chapters in) it’s pretty good. I already like Eli Sisters and am wary of his brother. I think I may well become something of a convert to the western genre if I enjoy this one. I’ve been thinking of trying Lonesome Dove too…
Joss Stirling – Stealing Phoenix (K/G/BL)
I’ve seen this one all over the blogosphere and it always seems to have positive reviews, so it was a no brainer including it on my reading list as a cross over for two challenges. Just started it, so I can’t really comment yet. I’m looking forward to getting into it though, so watch this space!
