I hope everyone has had a very fruitful book filled week of reading!!! As I mentioned on Twitter and Facebook I finally read ROOM by Emma Donoghue. It was a good read but was one of the longest and most difficult book reviews I've done. There were great parts of the book and parts I didn't totally love.
I'm currently about a third of the way through "Mistress of Rome" by Kate Quinn. I picked this book up at the library solely based on it's picture (oooo, pretty!!) and the title. It's been awhile since I've had a great historical fiction read in front of me. So far, I'm loving it! Set in the first century Rome it's got suspense, vivid descriptions, love, betrayal ... all wrapped up in a nicely flowing story!
Next up for me? Who knows. I have "The Boy in the Moon" by Ian Brown as well as "The Princess of Nowhere" by Prince Lorenzo Borghese (another of my 'oooo, pretty cover' picks) or I could choose "The Girl in the Garden" by Kamala Nair (a book recommended by another book blogger on Twitter). Has anyone read any of these books? Which would you recommend?
What are you all reading!?!? Share, share!! :) Happy reading!
