How New York got its name.

Spent my weekend reading these two for my IRL book club. Should make for a good discussion. They complement each other well. I really enjoyed learning about this iconic institution. The Dollhouse was a fun, quick read that really gave me a feel for this hotel for women (and NYC) circa 1952. I enjoyed the nonfiction even more. A very well-researched cultural history. I loved following The Barbizon from its inception to present day.

This is the first Fiona Davis book that I didn't love.

It takes place during the McCarthy era and focuses on two women in the arts.

It felt predictable to me.

I enjoyed this one. I liked a lot of the characters and the way things kind of evolved. A cute story!

I have participated in LetterMo 💌 from the beginning; any else in LitsyLand? The idea is to write/send a piece of correspondence every day the post runs. AND, you must reply to every letter received during the month.

Wanting to find a book to post this image, I found the selected and it looks fun. I discovered that I already have it on my tbr at gr 🎉 So, you could say, I rediscovered this book and am now checking my library. 🤩

The first in a new series has a lot riding on its shoulders. Not only does it have to have an interesting plot but is has to lay enough groundwork so you gain knowledge of and interest in the main characters so you want to continue on their journey. This book did an ok job of that and I am intrigued by the mystery man. However, it is sloppy editing to not notice when the wrong character is named from one page to the next.

Andrew65 That is bad editing! I love the look of the cover. Hopefully the next one can build and improve on this. Well done 🥳 3w

Me? Participate in another reading challenge? It‘s more likely than you think! I own three books of Fiona Davis‘ that I haven‘t read yet so that‘s who I‘m going to focus on for this #backlistreadathon. This is a double win as it will also help me work towards my goal of reading more of my own books this year 😂

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! I'm excited about this challenge because it focuses on reading books we're already planning to read instead of adding new ones 😂 3w
