This is something of a reading round-up in reverse. Instead of the books I’ve already read this week, these are the books I have stashed away to read over the holiday:
— Kate Morton’s The Distant Hours I’ve been saving this one as a bribe for finishing the 1920s book. It isn’t quite done, but….
— Eva Stachniak’s The Winter Palace: A Novel of Catherine the Great. This was sent to me as an ARC a while ago, but wound up buried under a pile of research books. Ooops.
— Juliana Grey’s A Lady Never Lies. This is the first in a new, Edwardian-set historical romance series coming out next year– all based on Shakespeare plots! I’m very excited to read it.
— Norman Davies’ Vanished Kingdoms: The Rise and Fall of States and Nations. This is the first of the holiday history book haul, all about the kingdoms that rose and disappeared, like Burgundia. Don’t you love the sound of that?
What are you planning to read over the holidays?
