Here are my top 5 books I’m hoping to get round to reading in February!
“History is brought alive by the people it affects, rather than those who created it. In Beautiful Star we meet Eilmer, a monk in 1010 with Icarus-like dreams; Charles I, hiding in 1651, and befriended by a small boy; the trial of Jane Wenham, witch of Walkern, seen through the eyes of her grand-daughter. This is a moving and affecting journey through time, bringing a new perspective to the defence of Corfe Castle, the battle of Waterloo, the siege of Toulon and, in the title story, the devastating dangers of the life of the sea in 1875”

So this tag was created by Jamie from Perpetual PageTurner!! All of these questions refer to books that I’ve read in 2017. I had to delete a couple of questions because I didn’t have answers to them/haven’t been active in blogging, but I hope you enjoy this post! Be sure to check out Jamie’s blog!
