  1. Hmm, I spot a bit of a watery theme here, Lory! Impressive rate of consumption though. 🙂

    I’m on a few days break with relatives but I’ve taken a book sent for review called The Munich Girl (a novel by Phyllis Edgerly Ring about Eva Braun, Hitler’s mistress) and a non-fiction to reread: Arthur Koestler’s The Thirteenth Tribe. I’ve ended up looking at historic towns and cathedrals instead …


    1. You are right! I had not even noticed that.

      I saw a review of The Munich Girl not long ago, looks interesting. Hope you enjoy it when the sightseeing is over.


    1. She definitely is, and even more interesting is that the title comes from an actual headline of the time. (So does the title of book one, Girl Waits with Gun).


  2. I’m reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Morning Star, and The Raven King right now. I haven’t heard of a single book you’re reading! *hides head in shame*


    1. Well, to be fair, the first two are new and the third one has not come out yet! You may be hearing more about them very soon.

      Your reading sounds like a fun mix.


  3. Welcome back! Rachel Elliot’s Whispers Through A Megaphone. I’m hoping to read the Amy Stewart, too, and at some point Novik’s Uprooted (part of the same series? I just know it sounds good).


    1. Uprooted is a standalone, set in a fantasy world somewhat resembling Polish folklore. It’s definitely worth reading! The Temeraire books are quite different, as they are more like Aubrey and Maturin with dragons.
