What I’ve Read – November and December 2019

The end of the year was tricky and I completely dropped the ball on what I read, so here is most of it!

Shadowmagic – John Lenahan

Prince of Hazel and Oak – John Lenahan

Sons of Macha – John Lenahan

These were on my TBR list, they were easy and quite lovely to read.

When Did You Last See Your Father – Jodi Taylor

I have a Jodi Taylor problem, I seem to love everything she writes.

Eggnog Makes Her Easy – Erin Nicholas

This was a quick easy novella but I didn’t much care for it. It’s a culture thing.

Why Is Nothing Ever Simple – Jodi Taylor

Why isn’t it? I’m looking forward to the next full length St Mary’s but this was a delightful Christmas Day read.

Christmas Past – Jodi Taylor

See above..

Someone to Remember – Mary Balogh

I’m a bit cross. You don’t get many older romance heroines and I think this one deserved more than an novella.

Sword of Kings – Bernard Cornwell

I’m determined to see this series through, I am loving that Uhtred gets beaten occasionally on account of him being so old..

The Queen of Nothing – Holly Black

I loved this, I loved the whole series, I pretty much love all of Holly Black’s novels for slightly older readers. I loved Jude and I loved how this turned out!

A Single Thread – Tracy Chevalier

This is a subject I have a lot of personal sympathy with and I enjoyed it and the idea of found family but I really did find the ‘romance’ ridiculous and I found the ending unrealistic.

The Time Traveller’s Guide to Elizabethan England – Ian Mortimer

This was a birthday present from Jo and I really enjoyed it. If you’re interested in the subject this is a great entry into the era..
