Loved Great Circle so thought I'd give this a whirl.
Plus it's about a ballerina and I started adult ballet in January 😊🤗

As part of my #balletreads challenge I picked this one. Very in-depth analysis of the history of ballet. Things addressed varied from the history of Danish and Italian as well as Russian and British and America ballet companies to introductions of some of the most influential dancers. Well worth the read if you‘re a lover of ballet or just being introduced for the first time. #ballet #springread

This book is about ballet, a topic that I‘m not very interested in. I don‘t remember why I decided to put this book on my TBR list. I think it‘s because somebody from my monthly book club Facebook account recommended it. At any rate, this story didn‘t bore me at all. It had everything. A bit of romance, a bit of scandal, a bit of suspense. I am glad that I took a chance on this book, it was pretty good.

For my #ballet challenge and for #bookspin. This was a very comprehensive book in the history of the Royal Ballet in London. If you‘re not a huge fan of ballet you may find this dry reading. But if you do love ballet or danced at one point this will be a very informative read #bookspin #mayreadinglist #balletread @TheAromaofBooks

My #Goldsboro book finally arrived the other day and I put everything aside to read it! This is a suspense story set in the world of ballet 🩰 with Swan Lake emphasis. So many twists and turns. Really a solid suspense thriller. #balletreadchallenge #springread

The Wolf Wilder | Katherine Rundell

Beautiful book, so happy I found it in a little free library. The writing is great, a bit rough in parts for a children's book, also a little implausible in parts but for a children's book, that's ok. Apparently there is a version with some beautiful illustrations, I may have to find it. Definitely not my last read by Katherine Rundell.

And with this read I finally got a bingo and I can now get ready the #BookSpin list for May.

The great history of Russian ballet | Evdokia Belova, E. Bocharnikova

This is a very comprehensive guide when it comes to the history of ballet. Especially Russian ballet. Here you‘re introduced to notable ballerinas, traditions and artwork and photos as well as notable figures such as teachers, ballet choreography and so on. I really enjoyed this read. May be a bit dry if you‘re not a fan of the ballet. #balletchallenge #readingchallenge2022

The character didn't really have any struggles, it was a bit of an annoying read for me.
