I've just started Danton: The Giant of the French Revolution by David Lawday. I've got four books left to read in my Paris category and need to get hopping. It's going to be a close thing this year, so that while I'm eying a few tomes, I'll have to save them for next year.
Danton vs. Robespierre is the original Team Jacob/Team Edward rivalry. You love one or the other. Never both.
Haha, love that comparison!
I'm reading Heartless by Gail Carriger, a carryover from last month. It's a quick read, though, so I hope to finish it today.
I'm reading two books at the moment: The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner (on my Kindle) and A Red Herring Without Mustard by Alan Bradley. I need to get Bradley's book read because I just snagged the next in the series from Early Reviewers. I'll mostly be reading from my Kindle over the coming weekend.
Just starting Palimpsest by Catherynne Valente, and trying to keep my expectations in check.
I'm finishing up some books, including one on the Bayeux Tapestry and Spinning Straw into Gold by Joan Gould.
I started Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas today, a story about the Japanese Internment Camps, this one set in Colarado.
@16, thanks Christina!
I've also started nibbling at Heaven's Keep by William Kent Krueger.
Tallgrass sounds like one I'd enjoy. I'll check and see if it's on my TBR list.
Taking a deep breath and getting ready to start Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.
I'll finish my challenge if I don't go off challenge or pick long books. So now all I want to do is to read long, long books, many of which I cannot possibly shoehorn in. Sigh. Still, it's not like the books I'm reading aren't good.
They are: Murder on the Eiffel Tower by Claude Izner, Lost in the City of Light by Richard de Combray and The Bloody Shirt: Terror After the Civil War by Stephen Budiansky.
I started the new Dexter Morgan-book, Double Dexter, and so far Lindsay has got the voice right. That whole series is unfortunately a bit hit-and-miss, so I'm keeping my fingers Xed for this installment.
I'm reading A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner. It's good, but I miss Eugenides!
I'm finally starting Patricia C. Wrede's Thirteenth Child, after ignoring it for at least two years...
At the end of November I'm reading A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel. She made me like Tudor politics, so I'm excited to see what she'll do with events I'm actually interested in. Also, can she make Robespierre sympathetic?
I'm also reading Waiter Rant by Steve Dublanica, because last night I was too tired for the French Revolution.
I am ending November - and will carry over into December - reading Seer of Egypt by Pauline Gedge.
I'm reading A Broken Vessel by Kate Ross, which I might be able to finish today...
I'm working on my current ER-book, Ashes to Dust, which is absolutely living up to my expectations - very happy about that!
I'm just starting Death of an Expert Witness. P.D. James is great, but there is a very slow buildup in this one, and I am having trouble keeping track of all the potential suspects!
