Book tastes

Quite varied taste, love historical fiction (especially about The Tudors, Marie Antoinette and the world wars) will also read non-fiction about these subjects. Also enjoy YA, especially fantasy and just regular fantasy. Classics, psychological crime, romance. I prefer fiction to non-fiction, also love cookbooks and fashion books.

Don't get this!

Please no science books or biographies or sports books.

Secret Santa

Olivia3010's Secret Santa is sahra. Help sahra pick the right book.


sahra: Hi Olivia3010,

Two of these are historical fiction about WWII, and one is fantasy YA. Two out of three are classics in their genres. I thought this crossed many of your tastes. :) Hope you like the choices, and happy holidays! :)
