I've just read your reviews of the Salem book and the Cellist and I will be looking out for them in the library...

Cleopatra's Daughter sounds like a wonderful book. I can't wait to read it myself. Ancient Rome is definitely an interesting setting. :)

Loved this post. I also enjoyed Cellist of Sarajevo; The Hour I First Believed, and the Katerine Howe book.

For today’s post, I don’t want to give away my top 10 books of the read, so I highlight authors whom I have discovered and re-connected this year. :) The Cellist of Sarajevo, by the way, is on my list.

Thanks for the holiday wishes! I have The Cellist of Sarajevo on my wishlist - everyone seems to like it.
