The Historian My Thoughts

Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to "My dear and unfortunate successor". Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of - a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mothers mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history.

This certainly kept me hooked to the end and it is full of  information on medieval Europe and it's blood thirsty inhabitants. Excellent character descriptions and I have to admit the hair on my neck tingled a couple of times. Do I believe in Dracula?  No I don't..... but then again.

My book shelf groaned with pleasure the other day as my girlfreind Sue (waves) popped in with another three for me, yum! So I have now to read

1. When God was a Rabbit (Sarah Winman)
2. Human Traces(Sebastian Faulks)
3. Room (Emma Donoghue)

Do you like my little blue man which my g/daughter Poppy gave me last week? she thought I would like it as he is reading a book and wearing glasses!!!. I do Pops thank you xx

If you have read any of the above would love to hear you thoughts.

I have read The Historian and enjoyed it. I love books with a mystery running through which verges slightly or overtly on the supernatural. The others I haven't heard of! I've just read A Quiet Belief In Angels by R J Ellory set in the deep South of the US. Very good too. xxx
