Hey fellow readers! I’m back. I didn’t mean to take such a long break, but I didn’t feel like I had anything to say, so I — didn’t? Say anything? Lame excuse, I guess, but there it is.
But today I’m back with a my current reads and plans for the rest of the month. I was looking at my library request list and realized I had several books on there about the Napoleonic Wars. Why not do them all in one big lump? So that’s what I have planned for the rest of the month. Here’s the books on my TBR list:
His Majesty’s Dragon by Naomi Novik. – done! This was a reread since I thought this one would sort of ease me into the whole subject. Lots of fun, combines fighting Napoleon with dragons. This is the first in the series and I really enjoyed revisiting this one.
None But You, (Captain Frederick Wentworth, #1) by Susan Kaye – done! Written as a companion to Jane Austen’s book Persuasion from the hero’s perspective. Not as good as I hoped, but I will still read the next one.
Napoleon’s Wars: An International History 1803-1815 by Charles Esdaile. Currently reading. Already happy with it because it has several maps and color photos of paintings. Over 500 pages.
Not reading yet, but I’m also planning on reading:
Nelson’s Trafalgar: The Battle That Changed the World by Roy A. Adkins
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norell by Susannah Clarke, reread – also the TV series!
Can you think of any good ones I have missed? Maybe I’ll watch Night at the Museum 2 as well!
