I can only read 1-2books a month, time is something I don't have :(.

I would love to be able to read that many books in one month! I'm doing really well if I get through two or three. All of those books sound like great reads!

I loved your review of Years of Wonder - I really want to read that. I also like the look of The Lost Book of Salem.

You have some good picks here. I see a trip to the library in my future! It was hard for me to pick just one, so I did a top five :) Here's my BTT.

Crystal said...

All three of these sound great. I have The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane on my library list and can't wait to read it. Off to see if they have Year of Wonders.

I ADORED year of Wonders. Just loved it.

I'm hearing good things about Jewel Trader, too. I'd like to bring it to my book club. It sounds totally up our alley.

I haven't read any of those three yet. They all look wonderful, though.

I enjoyed Katherine Howe's book as well, it was a quick pageturner for me. It also made me interested enough to look into the Salem history.

looks like some good books.

Michelle said...

Year of Wonders was an excellent book and such fodder for thought! The others sound just as intriguing. Isn't it fun when you get great book after great book? Those are the times where you want to read more to see if the streak can stay alive!
