A Little Vacation

A Little Vacation

I am taking a week off to go sleep in a musty tent and smack mosquitoes. And while I am doing this I am going to read a bunch of books that people have recommended to me.

The Queen's Fool
by Philippa Gregory - A Jewish girl escaping the inquisition becomes involved in court intrigue as Henry VIII's daughters duke it out for the throne.

Rebel Angels by Libba Bray - The sequel to A Great and Terrible Beauty (which was a great camping read for me last summer) wherein a group of English girls become involved in a magical and dangerous parallel world.

Beauty by Sherri S. Tepper - A time travel retelling of Sleeping Beauty that looks fantastic.

Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos - The BHS summer book club book, chosen by Mrs. Billings. The story of a girl who works in a coffee shop and I how her life changes.


Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling - Yeah, I read it last summer but I had the flu and could barely pay attention. So I am going to read it again.

Hey Barb
I love Beauty. You can put it in your cautionary tale list. Very depressing
