Here are some more books I have read in recent months but not written reviews of as of yet. Perhaps you have read some of them or have been meaning to read them.  Maybe you’ve never heard of them.  See what you think.

Magpie Murders by Anthony Horowitz

A complex mystery within a mystery when the author is murdered in the same way as described in his book.  Another great Horowitz mystery!

The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict

Historical fiction featuring Einstein’s first wife, her brilliance, how he stole her work and abused her mentally and physically.

Winter in Madrid by C.J. Sansom

A reluctant spy for the British government is sent undercover in war-torn Madrid to learn about how a former school chum is hoodwinking the government and in the meantime, discovers another chum from the same time, thought dead.  Pure Samson!

The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley

Old legends, Roman legions, ghosts, archaeology, second sight, and sabotage combine in this fascinating tale of a search for the lost Ninth Roman Legion.

Circling the Sun by Paula McLain

Wonderful historical fiction about the first female jockey in the club in Kenya and a pioneer in aviation, Beryl Markham, who survived a torturous childhood, disastrous and abusive relationships and scandals with royal princes.

The Paris Wife by Paula McLain

The love relationship between Hadley Richardson of Chicago and struggling author Ernest Hemingway, their life in Paris, relationships with “the Lost Generation”, the Fitzgeralds, Gertrude Stein, and Ezra Pound until if floundered in betrayal and lost love.

About mysm2000

Having taught elementary school for more than 25 years and been involved in many amazing technology and curriculum projects, I find I've developed a myriad of interests based on literature I've read and music I've heard. I've followed The Wright Three to Chicago, Ansel Adams to Colorado, The Kon Tiki Expedition to Easter Island, Simon & Garfunkel lyrics to New York City, Frank Lloyd Wright to Fallingwater, Pennsylvania, and have only just begun.
