Ashes of London | Andrew Taylor

I had such high hopes for this book, but I didn't like it at all! It was a chore to read, I hated the characters and it didn't bring the history alive for me. Stick to C. J. Sansom!

A beautiful love story within the sadness and grief. It's so odd to read a book about a pandemic I lived through, that started only two years ago.

Journey by Moonlight | Antal Szerb

Pickpick

This book is sublime, honest, sensual and funny. It's a dark comedy with an unreliable narrator, Mihály, who finds himself in absurd situations. The characters are realistic but their stories feel like fantasies, adding to the dreamlike feel of the book.

Antal Szerb was killed in The Holocaust, adding to the books' poignancy.

The Mirror and the Light | Hilary Mantel

I didn't enjoy Wolf Hall, but I kept going with the trilogy because I don't give up easily. It's not a good sign that while reading The Mirror and the Light, I stopped regularly to shout OH JUST CUT OFF HIS HEAD ALREADY! I can't pan it because I only have myself to blame.

Continuing my trend of always being at least 10 years behind in my reading recommendations....I'm finally reading C J Sansom. I loved Dissolution AND I don't have to wait for the next books in the series to be released! (George R R Martin I'm looking at you) 😂

Texreader Such a great series!! 2y
CGainor3 @Texreader I love it so far! 😊 2y

I don't know what I think of Wolf Hall honestly.....urm 🤔
(I'm new to Litsy if you couldn't tell 😂)

CGainor3 @MellieAntoinette Thanks, I'll get better at reviews I promise 😀 2y
Texreader I disliked this one so much I decided not to read her books anymore. 2y
CGainor3 @Texreader I don't know if I'll bother with Bring up the Bodies. The more I think about Wolf Hall the more I dislike it. Glad I'm not alone! 😊 2y
