This months #SubjectOfTheMonth is #VictorianEngland I am loving both of these books. @Tove_Reads These are two authors that always make me happy.

Tove_Reads Not familiar with these authors. Need to check them out! 9mo
Birdsong28 @Tove_Reads Lucy Worsley is the best!!! She is funny but knows her stuff also she is Head curator of Historical Palaces in the UK and I love her t.v docs. 😍😍😍😍😍 9mo
JacqMac @Birdsong28 @Tove_Reads Lucy is the best! I love her tv documentaries, too. We watch them on YouTube all the time. Gail Carriger is great, too. Her books are a little steampunk with werewolves and vampires. And she‘s also funny. Her books are a great escape. 9mo

For this month's #subjectofthemonth #truestories I listened to The Princess Diarist by and read by Carrie Fisher. She was really entertaining. While most of the book dealt with her affair with Harrison Ford, there were some interesting tidbits about her working on Star Wars 🚀

HONY: Stories are people‘s sharing something personal of themselves with photographer Brandon Stanton captured on the streets of NYC.

“I‘m an opera singer.”
“What‘s the highest note you can hit?”
“An F-sharp.”
“What does that sound like?”

I enjoyed this book about searching for a legend and the man who was searching for the legend - Fawcett and Z. The story went back and forth between the old and new quest. Never realized how obsessed people are and have been with Fawcett. Fawcett and his family were I obsessed as well. The intriguing part was that Grann got to study diaries others didn‘t get to read. Quick, easy read, enlightening and made me want to learn more!

Last month I read 13 books. This House is Haunted & Cappuccinos, Cupcakes & a Corpse were my favorites.
For #monthofBoyne I read A Ladder to the Sky & This House is Haunted. Both were good. For #subjectofthemonth which was historical fiction I meant to read Hunting Prince Dracula (which I haven't finished yet) but This House is Haunted works for that. Also I didn't get around to Crippen by Boyne which I still mean to.
A good month though 😺

kspenmoll Sounds like Some great books- well done!!! 10mo

It‘s no secret that I really enjoyed this one. It has all the things I love in a good story. I also found myself googling a lot, to see what might be true and what might be fiction. I was hoping Miriam was a real person. Not a full 5🌟, but it came really close. I had a big Ann question that wasn‘t answered.

I like the time period up until the world wars. 1500s to 1900, probably. I also like it when real events and people are part of the plot, like Sansom and Bowen do it. Follett is also amazing. So many good authors out there! I also prefer series. I like to dig deep! Also exploring new to me authors I want to, no need to, read! #subjectofthemonth #historicalfiction

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego At the moment I'm really enjoying Ruts Sepetys' books. I also like Conn Iggulden's Conqueror series, about Genghis Khan. 11mo
Tove_Reads @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I‘m looking forward to reading her. On hold at the library. 11mo
TrishB I like up to 1485. I can read later - normally 20th century. Like series historical fiction and I don‘t mind authors filling the gaps but hate inaccuracies. (edited) 11mo

annahenke Honestly, I love it all! I love to learn from it! (I check the facts) 11mo
sprainedbrain I think I really like it all... a few years ago I would have said 400s-1800s, but I‘ve read a lot of WWI and WWII historical fiction relatively recently that I just loved. As long as it well done and not grossly inaccurate! 11mo
JacqMac I love all of it, too. It‘s by far my favourite genre. And I love looking up the real history while I read. 11mo
melissanorr If you like historical mystery, the Sebastian St. Cyr series is one I highly recommend (if you haven't read it yet). 11mo
