New in #2

Hi guys, how you’re all doing? In Belgium there are some new COVID-19 restrictions, so I’m back at working from home every day of the week, at least for the coming month. This also means I will not be able to get to the library a lot :(. Luckily I have some new reads on my shelves.

From the library

I still managed to go to library at the beginning of this month! Lucky I am. There weren’t many book available from my autumn TBR however. This is what I picked up:

Sovereign by C.J. Sansom: the only book from my autumn TBR. Looking forward to reading this one.

The confessions of Frannie Langton by Sara Collins: I was looking for ‘The binding’ by Bridget Collings when I stumbled on this one. The beautiful cover and the promise of a dark gothic story lured me in. I immediately started reading this one.

The gates of Athen by Conn Iggulden: I can’t say how much I loved Iggulden’s series about Caesar and Brutus. But I’m a bit behind with his other books (his Wars Of The Roses trilogy for example). This is the first book in a new series set in ancient Greece.

New e-books

The heretic wind by Judith Arnopp: I’ve always wanted to read something of Judith Arnopp. When I saw that this one about Mary Tudor was a Kindle deal, I decided to give it a chance. Mary I is not my favorite Tudor character, but I find her reign and the struggles between Catholics and Protestants quite interesting.


In the meantime, I’ve been approved for some interesting Netgalley books.

A time for swords by Matthew Harffy – A book about the battle between Danes and Saxons. This will be my next Viking fix.

The revolt by Clara Dupont-Monod – A short novel about Eleanor Of Aquitaine and her sons. It’s a translation from a French book and I’m already reading this one. So far, I like it.

The fabargé secret by Charles Delfoure – A book during the tsar regime in Russia. I always love pre-revolution stories set in Russia.

The forgotten orphan by Glynes Peters – A WOII story. I don’t know what to expect from this one but I will give it a chance.

Which books are you looking forward to reading? What’s new on your shelves?
