It’s 8.11 pm here, I made it! I was going to post my Top Ten Tuesday yesterday but I honestly forgot until after midnight. So next week I’ll have two or maybe I’ll post something tomorrow. Anyway, here I am! I actually made it! Go me! I would have posted earlier but I needed to reorganize my bookshelves and I had a doctor’s appointment. (I’m good, guys! Just a touch of anemia again. Bah.)
I am currently reading two books at once! I used to be able to do it no issue but now? I sometimes find that my worlds will blend. Fortunately, that hasn’t happened. First, I am reading ‘Mirror, Mirror’ by Gregory Maguire. Its a retelling of Snow White but it features Cesare and Lucrezia Borgia. I love the Borgias; I think they’re so fascinating. Mr. Maguire is the genius behind Wicked and this is actually the first book by him that I”ve read, though I do have Wicked.
My second read is The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker, which tells The Iliad as seen through the eyes of Briseis, who was taken as Achilles’s slave after the sack of Lyrnessus. (You have no idea how hard it was to remember the name of that, lol.) It’s a very fascinating story thus far; I have only read the first four chapters, but I am very intrigued and look forward to reading more.
I’ve finished reading quite a few things lately; I’ve just posted their reviews in the last few days. I am Mrs. Jesse James, Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen. I have another review being posted tomorrow. Stay tuned! 😉 I just finished Three Dark Reigns too! I almost forgot to mention that. I am such a fangirl now. I bought the next in the series and the novellas, which were put together in one book. I need to get the newest one that was just released. (They didn’t have it yet! lol.)
I am planning to read…
I received both of them in the mail today and I’m just kind of fangirling as I do, haha. It actually made me glad I”m posting this late because I get to include my excitement over these. I also plan a reread of Dracul, which I can finally flail about to all of you. I have good things in store, I hope you’ll stick with me! ❤
