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!

  1. I am reading a book on my kindle app, would give the title, but be noting you be interested in lol but great little review here.

  2. Have a great reading week.

  3. I have a love/hate relationship with Phillipa Gregory! Her books are amusing but kind of trashy! I tend to go for books that can be described like that every once in a while!

    Happy Reading!

    • I’ve only read her historical novels – I’ll admit I have absolutely no interest in her modern ones. Don’t know whay, I just have the feelnig I won’t enjoy them even half so much!

  4. I borrowed The Sisters Brothers from the library and hope to get to it soon too. Like you, I haven’t read a Western novel in a long time.

  5. The Phillipa Gregory book looks good. She’s always got a pretty interesting story going on in any book she writes. I hope you like it 🙂
    Happy 2012!

  6. Looks like you have had a great set of reads.
