Book tastes

I would like something easy to read after a traumatic year. I like historical fiction such as the Shardlake series and Ken Follett novels. Huge fan of Outlander. Jodi Picoult is also a favourite with her moral dilemmas. So not these authors please.

Don't get this!

Erotic fiction, vampires and other supernatural books aren't wanted.

Other notes

Since my husband died this year concentration is poor and so would welcome something easy to read as adistracion.

Honigfrosch: I searched for books with a 5-star rating in Northern_Light's library, and tried to find more from these authors. I suggest "Invader" by Simon Scarrow, and "The Summer Queen" by Elizabeth Chadwick. (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 13:19:24 -0500)

Jenni_Canuck: > @ lorannen: My prices are in Canadian $$ since that's what BD showed me. Fingers crossed it works out :D (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 15:25:33 -0500)

Jenni_Canuck: I hope you enjoy the books I chose for you, Northern_Light. Both books are light and entertaining and Haroun and the Sea of Stories is a personal favourite. I'm very sorry for the loss of your husband. I know this time of year can be especially difficult but I hope your memories will be a source of strength and comfort in the coming days and months.
