A wonderful, engaging and gripping story about the Pendle Witch Trials of 1612. The story follows Fleetwood Shuttleworth who has had several miscarriages and who‘s life now depends on being able to deliver the baby she‘s carrying now. She comes across a woman who is a midwife and can help her but soon they become entangled in the witch trials and must fight to be heard and to be freed. A very well crafted story 💐❤️

Unfortunately I just didn‘t enjoy this one like I thought I would. I‘d heard such great things but it just wasn‘t for me. For some reason I couldn‘t get on board with the writing style, I found the characters to be a bit 2 dimensional and I didn‘t really like them? The ending was better but I still wasn‘t as invested as I like to be. I feel a bit unfair saying that though because I think perhaps I‘m just too old to enjoy these books anymore?

StaceyKondla I don‘t think a person is ever too old to enjoy YA. This one just wasn‘t very good 🤷‍♀️ Have you read Children of Blood Bone? That one is an awesome YA fantasy 😊 3mo

Dunstan | Conn Iggulden
post image
Pickpick

Conn Iggulden never disappoints. Another fascinating story of a fascinating person from history. Dunstan lived through the reigns of seven kings, starting from king Aethelstan, the grandson of King Alfred the Great and considered the first king of England. Dunstan himself is manipulative and misogynistic but cunning and draws you in.

Picture taken at St Dunstan-in-the-East church ruins in London; a church built by Dunstan.

Emilia | Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
post image
Pickpick

One of the greatest plays ever written! If you can get to London, watch this show! It‘s revolutionary! It follows the woman thought to be the “dark lady” in Shakespeare‘s sonnets and who Emilia in Othello is based on. She is a writer but obviously not afforded the same privileges as men during that time and has to do what she must to survive. Every word has meaning. Uproariously funny. Utterly inspiring.

And I‘m starting this one today! I loved The Wars of the Roses series by Conn Iggulden so much!! And this one is all about a warrior during the time of Alfred the Great which is another period I love! (Mainly because of The Last Kingdom which people should definitely watch on Netflix, it‘s awesome! 😂) I cannot wait I get stuck in 💪🏻

Crazeedi His genghis Khan series was fabulous too. I'm going to have to read this! 4mo

Norse Mythology | Neil Gaiman

I wizzed through this one! It is such a fun read! The stories of the gods are so crazy and outlandish but so absorbing and entertaining. The only other Neil Gaiman book I‘ve read was Coraline and I enjoyed that one too. His writing style is really simplistic but I don‘t feel like I‘m missing anything? I would recommend this book, especially if you‘re busy and need one you can pick up, put down or just an entertaining story to lighten a commute 😃

Lmstraubie I have the audio book version. I'm looking forward to it! 4mo

A Woman's Work | Harriet Harman
post image
Pickpick

Listening to Michelle Obama‘s memoir has reminded me of Harriet Harman‘s. I read this when it first came out a few years ago but I think about it often. It‘s incredible hearing her journey, starting out as only a handful of women in government, she campaigned for an equality bill and working mothers and women of sexual violence. It‘s amazing to think what current female MPs have gone through to get to government so they can help the rest of us.

My Shakespeare books! ❤️

I have the individual plays too but these are all my complete collection books. The bottom one is the newest one that my dad bought me when I was about 16 and it‘s the one I use most often. The one on top of that one is my dad‘s copy he got when he was a kid. And then the two top ones were a present on my 21st birthday. They‘re from 1864 and we‘re a present to a young gentlemen when he left Eton college.

I‘ve never read romance before but as it‘s Valentines next week I thought I‘d give it a go! This one follows Alexa and Drew when they meet in a stuck elevator, hit it off and agree to be dates at a wedding. It was a quick,enjoyable read. I wasn‘t crazy about it and didn‘t particularly care about what happened to the characters but it was still interesting and fun to read.

Can anyone recommend any really beautiful romance novels that they loved?

CarolynM What constitutes a really beautiful romance novel is a very personal thing, I think. Also, I think it's hard to be precise about what constitutes "romance". I'll tag some novels I'd call romance that I have enjoyed starting with 5mo

Thoroughly recommend these two from Caitlin Moran.

Johanna Morrigan is funny and loveable if a bit silly and misguided sometimes 😂 in fact; all the characters are really extravagant but human and it‘s just exciting to be reading about their lives and adventures. I flew through both books. I wonder if there‘ll be anymore...? I‘m very excited it‘s already being turned into a movie!

Another great play by Simon Longman. He writes a lot about families and siblings etc which I like. This one follows two sisters on a farm during lambing season when a mysterious man shows up and we learn about their family and their life on this farm. A strong theme of time; time standing still and going nowhere and also time running away from them. It‘s touching and funny and thought provoking.
