SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

November Roundup

Dreaming Spies - Laurie R. King The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France - Eric Jager Lost Horizon - James Hilton As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust: A Flavia de Luce Novel - Alan Bradley The City and the Stars - Arthur C. Clarke

Best reads of the month: Dreaming Spies and The Last Duel (Lost Horizon technically is a reread, so I kind of knew what I was getting), both 4 stars.


No worst read of the month, as nothing below 3 stars.


Two ARCs: Dreaming Spies and As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust, and I'd recommend both to fans of their respective series.
