Kearsley has a way of twisting multiple storylines to bring people in different time periods together so effortlessly! Great love stories, deep dives into historical detail, and dreamy magical touches make this one of my all-time favorites.
Hilarious and sexy and absurd, this paranormal romance series lives in a steampunk world. Had enough? You're not even getting started.
One of favorite depictions of the Victorian detective, an oft-attempted genre. Monk is a man we meet when he wakes up from amnesia, and we follow him through life, which he treats as a case to be solved...completely gripping and fascinating, and gets her details about Crimean War and other timely bits right.
A mix of travel and history any historian or Francophile would love. I have asirations about the former but can claim the latter and Caro's connections to place and past empires is deeply moving and fascinating.
So. Helpful. I've read many industry books but this has been the most on-the-ground applicable and useful for me as an author.
A wonderful non-cookbook about how to treat your food so that your relationship with it can form the basis of a well-lived life!
The esoteric, bluestocking's guide to the walking in all its facets. Solnit does a remarkable job wandering in her topics but divulges fascinating social patterns and traditions that shed light on our modern needs and shortcomings, too.
A sociological treatment of how we live and how we used to live, this book triggered me to think about my own use of space more critically. Not in a decluttering way but in a family-social-values kind of way.
I'm not a hard-core sci-fi fan but this paranormal series introduces werewolves and vampires in an entirely refreshing way--not as sex symbols. Great action, tension, imaginative superhuman abilities, and hilarious!
One of the formational stories of my young adulthood, this fantasy tells of a girl searching for justice for her parents' death, a boy who interests her, and a whole other world she discovers. As good as A Wrinkle in Time, for a little older audience.
A delightful inheritor of the Austen character as imagined, Barron wields a deft pen. Humor, wit, manners, pain, social inhibitions, plus a sleuth who's a smart woman! So good.
