Happy Fiction Friday everyone! I hope you had a lovely week! Today, I thought I would share some books that are on my bedside table, which is where I keep the books I want to read next stacked up!
We have a book by Jessie Burton an English actress and author titled, The Miniaturist. Set in 1686 it follows a young heroine of 18 who is married off to a wealthy man twice her age. Missing her country home, he has a craftsman make, essentially, a doll house for her which is an exact replica of her old home. From reading the back cover, drama ensures with the man who makes this house of miniatures for our young heroine, Nella Oortman. Which more than likely means a romance happens between the two. One day I was wondering Barnes & Noble, as one does, and I love books that take place in this time period so I thought I would give it a read!
We then have a book from a recommendation from a friend, by author Sarah Hilary titled, Someone Else’s Skin. Your typical murder mystery novel, which come one who doesn’t love a good murder mystery! I have read the first few chapters, and the writing is very gripping thus far! (Always a plus for a murder!) I don’t know what else to write for this one because I don’t want to give anything away haha!
And finally, something not only for pleasure but business as well, a book by Stephen Marche, How Shakespeare Changed Everything. Which basically discuss how Shakespeare is all around us and formed the world we live in today when it comes to plays, stories, art, and all that good stuff!
Those are the books that are on my bedside table! Let me know if you have any recommendations! I’m always looking for more books to read!
Until next time,
