The Serpent's Tale (Mistress of the Art of Death, #2) - 4 Stars I am loving this series. Here we have Adelia on the case again at Henry's 'request'; to investigate the poisoning of one of his mistresses.
A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail (Official Guides to the Appalachian Trail) by Bill Bryson, http://www.amazon.com/dp/0767902521/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_t61Opb1T481XQ
"Remarkable Creatures", by Tracy Chevalier. So not really Victorian, but definitely 19th century. A fascinating glimpse at the hobby--and passion--of fossil hunting, and how it dictated and defined the lives of two women who refused to fit the mold.
Caleb Carr is just magnificent. This book is set in the late 1800's of New York City. Because the mentally ill were deemed aliens of society, those who worked with them were not called psychologists but rather, alienists. Amazing page turner if you're into psychological thrillers! Loved this book!
I REALLY enjoyed this read. I think the fact it was historical fiction...im looking forward to the other 2 books.
Lark Rising by Sandra Waugh - The perfect cross between YA/Fantasy and anyone scared off by the daunting lengths, this is the perfect book. It will take you far away, on a quest that involves friends, sacrifice, true love and a tad of humour! readingnooknz.blogspot.com
Great book! Maeve Binchy has so many great characters and she somehow weaves each of them into your heart so that you feel as if you're reading about a group of old friends.
