Hello my fellow bookworms, I have another combined post here for you. In May and June, here are the goodies I have added to my Kindle and shelves:
Queen of the North by Anne O’Brien
At the end of May, I was lucky enough to have my requests for these three historical fictions granted. After recently enjoyed The Shadow Queen by Anne O’Brien, The Plague Charmer by Karen Maitland and First of the Tudors by Joanna Hickson, I am super excited to read these new books of theirs.
The Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan
The Return of the Prodigal Son by Henri J.M. Nouwen
Moving on into June, I downloaded the discounted Collins Classics’ Kindle edition of The Pilgrim’s Progress and ordered a bargain, second-hand copy of The Return of the Prodigal Son from World of Books. Both for my church’s book club.
The Black Corsair by Emilio Salgari
The Queen of the Caribbean by Emilio Salgari
Then I was thrilled to be contacted again by the translator, Nico Lorenzutti about two more Italian classics. After enjoying Sandokan, The Tigers of Mompracem, I am looking forward to more swashbuckling adventures. As these are classics too, I have added them to my Classics Club list too.
Knowing Max by James Long
Finally, through Endeavour Press’ weekly e-newsletter, I snapped up a free copy of this historical fiction, because some years ago now, I loved Long’s bestselling time-slip novel Ferney.
Do you fancy any of these? What new books have you got recently?
