I am up to my eyeballs in OF SALT AND SORROWS revisions. My first pages are due at the end of the month so I’m rereading something completely different– one of my favorites, THE ROYAL WE– to take a small break from ghosts and keep my head focused on my own story line. There’s nothing worse than going through your work and realizing you’ve seen that thread before somewhere else!
BUT if you’re as ridiculously excited as I am for the Royal Wedding on May 19th, I highly recommend checking out any of these fun reads:
WE TWO: VICTORIA AND ALBERT: RULERS, PARTNERS, RIVALS by Gillian Gill
VICTORIA’S SKETCHBOOK by Marina Warner
LAST CURTSEY: THE END OF THE DEBUTANTES by Fiona MacCarthy
THE PERFECT SUMMER: ENGLAND 1911, JUST BEFORE THE STORM by Juliet Nicolson
THE ANGLO FILES: A FIELD GUIDE TO THE BRITISH by Sarah Lyall
SOMEDAY MY PRINCE WILL COME: TRUE ADVENTURES OF A WANNABE PRINCESS by Jerramy Fine
You’ll be dusting off your fascinator and breaking out the good tea faster than you can say “God save the Queen!”
What are you reading this month?
