I have had several events this week that have really cut into my reading time, so as I have not completed any books, I will share the rest of my ever growing stash.
This is the nonfiction stack. From top to bottom:
The Short and Long Times of Mrs Beeton - I've had my eye on this for awhile and like reading about this time period.
The Rare and the Beautiful- This is about the lives of the Garman sisters. I don't know anything about them, but I came across this and I am always up for biographies about sisters. I've also loved The Sisters:The Story of the Mitford Family and Victoria's Daughters.
The Seamstress - The holocaust survival story of a young woman. This is another favorite genre of mine.
Victorian London - I had been looking for a deal on this for some time.
Circle of Sisters - I have wanted to read this since I read another of Judith Flander's books Inside the Victorian Home which I loved. Again, this is another biography of sisters. This actually came from Half Price Book's recent sale.
The fiction stack:
The Moonstone - I've thought I would like this for some time.
The Singing Bird - Another book I've been looking for a good price on since the library doesn't have it. One of the only 'modern women's fiction' books here.
Pinkerton's Sister - Looks interesting, particularly for bibliophiles, but daunting in size.
The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox - I've been hearing about this on some other blogs.
The Moonlit Cage - I really, really liked Linda Holeman's book The Linnet Bird and was happy to find another book by her. This is about a girl from Afghanistan traveling to 1850's England.
The Great Stink - I had been considering this when Nutmeg wrote a great review of it. Clare Clark's new book , The Nature of Monsters, looks great.
Hmmm. Notice any trends here? Women's fiction and historical fiction, women's history, books about the UK, specifically those set in Victorian times and early 20th century. Books about sisters, books about the holocaust. These books are a great snapshot of genres I love to read, and always seek out.
