I recently found this site via i-kaye-book-blog.blogspot.com and followed it to its new home at this blog: http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/2010/02/08/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-22/
I am an avid reader and am thrilled to be participating for the first time.
I look forward to writing them many new reviews on books and reading others!
The Heretic's Daughter is one that I've wanted to read for a long time. So far it is living up to my expectations and is my favorite book this week. I love stories that involve womens relationships to one another and the more historical the better.
Queen Noor's autobiography while good is a slow read. It is not surprisingly biased but I was surprised how much of the book was taken up with the war between Isreal and Palestine (past, present and future) and less with actually telling the story of her life.
Sundays at Tiffanys was a light fluffy read. Very enjoyable and quick.
The Years to Come was awful. I didn't expect much from it but only picked it up because it was a historical romance set in Australia. Turns out the main character is raped three times. Once by a convict and twice by her husband. Its ok when its her husband though as they eventually fall in love even though he does nothing but dominate her and yell at her and this somehow shows his love.
Shanghai Girls I've also wanted to read for a long time and am super excited about.
City of Shadows I picked up because I am a sucker for anything related to Tsarist Russia.
